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.
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.
