As we said in a previous blog, there’s a revolution happening with 4K coax cable design. We outlined factors that set new 4K coax cable design apart (silver-coated copper center conductors, the insulation, polyethylene types and foil shields bonded to the core). Then we ended our post by promising to tell you about the last remaining factor that sets new 4K coax cable designs apart from the others: the cable braid in 12 GHz 4K design.

Could DC power be an energy-saving game changer in the data center industry?
As power densities increase, colocation and hyperscale data center operators need to take advantage of every opportunity to reduce power consumption. Is it possible that 380V direct current (DC) might be the solution?

You may have heard about computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling when it comes to the design of high-performance Formula 1 racecars. By using CFD modeling to maximize down-flow forces while minimizing friction – for the racecar body and smaller “wings and struts” – Formula 1 produces a winning combination.

The use of category cables for power delivery has been getting lots of attention lately – especially given the changes in NEC (2017), NFPA 70 (2017) and potentially CEC C22.1 (2017 proposed revisions). This attention is related to potential safety issues that may arise when high power, high temperature and high cabling density are present.

The International Building Code (IBC) dictates that certain facilities – data centers often included – remain operational during and after earthquakes or other seismic events. Based on building type, and how essential a building’s operations are, facilities are placed into four IBC-determined risk categories.
