With the ever-increasing use of fiber optics in today's high-speed, data-heavy networks, we have more and more reasons to understand the loss budget in each fiber optic network link. Can a new network element be deployed on this link or is the loss budget too high? What should it be? How can it easily be determined?
There's one vital rule in data center design: plan for growth. As end users demand more bandwidth and faster downloads, networks of all kinds are ramping up their fiber counts but data center space isn't always easy to come by.
Backup power is vital in today’s network environments. Network outages can cost thousands of dollars in lost revenues and fines. That's not a pretty picture for any data center or communications service provider.
Every day, millions of people rely on communications equipment to … well … communicate. All of this network equipment is commonly protected by DC power-distribution fuse panels. The most common type of DC power panel sold is a GMT fuse panel.
Modern networks face a constant challenge with density and bandwidth. With all connectors created equally … wait, scratch that. That was the statement of choice when we had single-strand connectors like FC, ST, SC or LC.
Are you reading this on your mobile phone? A tablet? The days of mobile connectivity via a device in your hand could be coming to end. The future is bound for virtual reality. At least that is what we are expecting.
Cable management is essential in building out a network. That's like saying the sun is going to rise in the east, though. Do we ever stop to think about the consequences of poor cable management? Why do some companies offer extensive cable management while others rarely focus on it?
Telect recently announced the retirement of co-founders Bill and Judi Williams from the company’s Board of Directors.
Today’s high-speed networks thrive on optical fiber connections … perfect fiber connections. But those connections are finicky. Fiber cable connections must be clean on both ends, they require gentle handling and they need to be installed with proper bend radius, end to end, to prevent any induced loss issues.
One member of the fiber optic cable family has a new name. TIA-492AAAE was issued in July 2016 for multimode fiber that supports transmission of multiple wavelengths including and beyond 850nm.
