In this webinar:

The success of IP convergence ultimately depends on network infrastructure: cabling and connectivity. If you don’t have the right information to consider as you select cables to bring IP-connected devices together onto a single network, you could be misled into making the wrong investment. The result: poor performance and poor ROI.

This webinar walks you through the factors to consider – including the application, environment, users, bandwidth needs and future goals – when choosing cabling. After you learn about the important differences between copper and fiber cable in terms of construction and performance, we’ll explore the different types of each cable:

  • Copper: category 5e, 6, 6A and 8 for copper
  • Fiber: singlemode (OS1 and OS2) and multimode (OM3, OM4 and OM5)

At the end of this webinar, you’ll be ready to:

  • Explain the differences between different types of copper and fiber cable
  • Pinpoint when to use each cable type
  • Confidently read a tech data sheet to better understand cable performance parameters
  • Recognize governing bodies and how standards impact cabling choices
  • Identify emerging applications that support IP convergence, including PoE, IoT and HDBaseT
