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?
Growth in a data center isn't just about making your network handle today's—or even tomorrow's—traffic. It's about planning for years and years down the road.
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.
Basket trays are the most common, cost-effective solution for installing overhead fiber cable raceways. But, let's face facts: you're putting your cable at risk when you choose wire basket over solid troughs.
When you're building or retrofitting your network infrastructure, you don't always have the staff or resources to design your layout. Telect has a Custom Configured Solutions team with the expertise to design cable raceways and rack architecture.
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.
Downtime on your network can cause severe headaches, as well as cost thousands of dollars in OPEX, even if you don't realize it. Network outages in 2015 were estimated to cost $7,900/minute, or $468,000/hour. Who wants to run up that kind of bill?
Clean fiber optic components are vital for a quality connection between your pieces of network equipment. As network providers are building up to deploy 40G and 100G systems, techs must pay close attention to their fiber optic performance, ensuring data is transmitting quickly and without failure.
Bend radius violations and poor cable routing can cost you thousands of dollars in a short amount of time. Trying to cut corners during installation eats away at your operating expenses because you’re suffering network maintenance and downtime. Then there’s all those ticked-off customers …
Network engineers face a myriad of everyday problems with their fiber optic cable. Many of those issues have to do with attenuation. Whether there are microfractures, violations of bend radii or even dirty connections, the symptoms these problems show are the same.
