Deploying a new fiber cabling system can be time consuming and expensive – especially if troubleshooting or re-terminations are necessary. Splice-on connectors help installers get jobs done right in less time, combining the benefits of fusion splicing with the simplicity of field-installable connectors.

Sometimes you can’t find exactly what you need. You find something close, but it doesn’t meet your requirements. Or it may compromise a performance aspect of your network or data center: speed, reliability, futureproofing or uptime, for example. As data center and network requirements continue to grow, and these changing requirements are adopted at each organization’s own pace, the need for fast, reliable and customized solutions will also grow.

Using Internet protocol (IP) technology as a communications method, security cameras, digital signage systems, lighting, HVAC and building controls, wireless access points, desk phones and access control devices are uniting on one common infrastructure. These previously unrelated, standalone systems are now connecting to the IT network. This is why we’ve declared 2017 as the year of the digital building.

Fairly new on the data-transmission scene, silicon photonics is an exciting technology that promises inexpensive, mass-produced optical components through photonics integration – it transfers data among computer chips by optical rays that carry more data in less time than electrical conductors. Since the first commercial product was introduced in 2005, the last decade has seen significant progress in technology and development.

As recent test results show, category cables – which are optimized for Ethernet traffic – often struggle with the HDBaseT signal. The characteristics of category cables are, at times, overkill for HDBaseT applications; other times, category cable characteristics are not sufficient to guarantee a good signal. HDBaseT is a different type of signal, and 4K video is pushing that limit even further.

Multimode optics, including multimode VCSEL-based transceivers and multimode fiber, have been dominating data center short-reach links. Why? Because they can offer:
• Lower link costs
• Less power consumption
• Higher resistance to fiber misalignment and dirt at connections
There are innovations in multimode optics on the horizon that will address many challenges, helping maintain and improve the appeal of multimode optics in the years to come. Let’s discuss them here.

Cable imbalance, which can lower immunity to interference – can increase alien crosstalk between adjacent cables to levels that are beyond recommendations, negatively impacting network performance. Every component of a cabling system has the potential to influence alien crosstalk performance and compromise cabling system quality. The cables and how they are connected can have a major impact on data transmission. This is one of many reasons why it’s important to use the appropriate cables and connectors.
