High-definition video – and now, even ultra-high-definition video – is becoming crucial to enterprises, from streaming content on retail digital signage to recording, streaming and sharing classroom lectures for distance learning. This increasing demand calls for support of robust audio and video distribution applications. For this reason, it’s important for AV and network design professionals to understand HDBaseT and how it works.

Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is a highly anticipated and widely discussed set of IEEE Ethernet standards for the industrial world. However, end users oftentimes express a certain wariness due to the perceived configuration complexity of TSN.

Although not considered a plug-and-play technology, several standardization groups are taking steps to simplify the TSN configuration and integration process. Key aspects of these important activities for end users are finding the right level of abstraction for human operators and automating the low-level configuration details underneath. These steps ultimately enable a user-friendly experience when applying TSN technology to industrial networks.

Read on to learn more about these ongoing TSN activities and best advice when thinking about TSN configuration in the future.

When it comes to selecting a patch panel, there are two options: preloaded or traditional (a.k.a. modular). Preloaded patch panels feature pre-installed connectors; traditional (unloaded) patch panels typically have empty holes where connectors can be installed prior to or during deployment.
So when should you choose a preloaded patch panel over an unloaded one? Below, we list the top three reasons you may want to consider a preloaded patch panel for your next networking project.

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems have long been used in industrial automation applications to control and monitor data from automated processes. But, what most teams think of as SCADA today is considered outdated.

As big data, IIoT, analytics and the cloud become even more pervasive in industrial settings, SCADA systems are becoming smarter. Now engineers have a visual interface into their control networks, leading to more confident decision making because of the feedback offered through being able to see the big picture of the network.

Industries like oil and gas, transportation, water-wastewater, manufacturing and energy are all benefiting from SCADA, as it allows teams to see everything live, including where failure occurs, and puts control back in the hands of the users.

Read on to learn more about how SCADA is being used in substation automation and the benefits teams can receive through these systems.

Petya ransomware surfaced publicly in June 2017, starting first in the Ukraine, rapidly moving to Europe and now into the United States. This global ransomware epidemic will not only encrypt your systems – essentially denying you access to everything it holds – it also “wipes” (overwrites) the hard drive master boot record (MBR) so that it cannot boot up its operating system.

Without a backup, your system is dead and all the data lost. Some researchers believe even if the Bitcoin ransom were paid and keys obtained, they would not work to decrypt and restore your systems.

Read this blog to understand the basics of the Petya ransomware, how to know if your systems are vulnerable, and five security tips to consider as next steps to protect your operations.
