We have an exciting new feature on our line of FiberExpress Ultra HD fixed shelves. These new shelves are fixed, though flexible and offer a perfect complement to pre-terminated fiber systems in data centers. Or, if you have an enterprise LAN installation, they can benefit that application too.
According to our Product Line Manager Dwayne Crawford, "Pre-terminated fiber solutions have greatly simplified the requirements for traditional fiber patch panels. By eliminating field termination, complex features for protecting and managing 900 µm/250 µm fiber, and the need to provide additional access for trunk side terminations, can be removed. The result is a simplified and more cost effective approach.”

We’re having some technical difficulties with our (unnamed) Internet provider today. And by difficulties, I mean that we can’t access the Internet. At all. I was surprised to see how much I take that seemingly simple privilege for granted.
This morning, as I was working on another project, I spaced out, opened a browser and started to enter something into the Google search bar. I hit enter. Then I was hit by the realization that there is no connectivity. It wasn’t a shock – we had been without connection since I arrived this morning. The surprise came when I realized that I am so used to having the ability to use the ‘net whenever I need that I completely forgot that it was down.
One of our employees, Account Manager James Sigler, had a great time attending the Olympics with his wife, Beverly. The following is a Q&A with James about his time at the Olympics and what it was being a part of such a big part in such an important world event.
What made you decide to attend the Olympic Games? My wife is a USA Track and Field Level 3 coach and was part of a group of coaches who took the USA Junior team to Czech Republic in 2008. While there, she coached a young man, Christian Taylor. She was invited to participate in the Olympics but elected to forgo the actual coaching process because she wouldn’t see him compete.

Fiber-optic cabling and literally hundreds of compatible signal distribution and camera transmission production will take the main stage at the 2012 London Olympic Games. I’ve heard that 30,480 meters, or almost 20 miles, of fiber optic cable have been deployed across the numerous sports venues alone. Fiber gives them much more capacity on a single strand of glass and the ability to send uncompressed or compressed signals farther than standard coax cable.
