Nowadays, homes and businesses are operating on either a wired network connection or a wireless connection. Wired connections are usually faster than wireless connections and have lower latency. Both types of network hardware continue to advance, allowing users to benefit from faster speeds.

This might not be a big deal for the home network where the internet connection speed is usually the bottleneck. But businesses need to consider what kind of cables they are using. When using different types of Ethernet cables, the network speeds differ.

Comparing Other Cables To The Cat7 Ethernet Cable

Let’s start with the most standard types of Ethernet cables. Most of the new ones that are purchased in stores or bundled with equipment are...

The increasing demand for faster access to larger volumes of data, emerging high-speed network standards and rapidly advancing technology make it essential to integrate equipment with different network speeds into your network infrastructure. Modular patch panel solutions allow you to seamlessly and conveniently integrate equipment with 10G, 40G and 100/120G speeds to meet your connectivity needs future-proof your networks.

Tendency in Data Centers

When you plan to integrate 10G and 40G equipment in your data center, you’re supposed to make sure that the existing network of 10G servers and other devices can be connected to your higher-speed switches like 40G switches. And connectivity with future network standards should be taken...

As bandwidth demands continue to rise, both copper and fiber cable manufacturers are developing fast to provide greater capacity and flexibility. Copper cabling is still preferred by many network managers because copper cables especially UTP cables (eg. Cat6 UTP Cable), are as inexpensive as optical fibers and easy to install. And the components such as patch panels, wall-plate outlets, connecting blocks are economical. Here are the guidelines for copper cabling installation which would ensure a faster and safer copper network.

Standards

The first step when planing and deploying a telecommunication infrastructure is to make sure you are following the ANSI/TIA-568-C standard. This standard will ensure that your cabling system is...

In high-density data centers, disorder of cable assemblies can lead to poor system performance, difficult maintenance, unnecessary downtime, and even safety hazards. Good management will enhance your system availability and efficiency by well organizing the mass of cables. D-rings, as one of the common types of cable management products, play an important role in building an easier and safer cabling environment.

What Can D-Ring Cable Manager Achieve?

D-ring, also known as D-ring cable manager, is a basic manager that organize cables. It is commonly used individually on any suitable plat like wall or installed on cable management panel to provide easy and orderly cable routing, making it one of the most versatile cable managers on...

Without optical communication we might be still sending mail, going to the newsstand to buy a newspaper, sending mail and postcards and renting movies, no internet would have been possible, no digital communications as we know it.

Among the many unsung technologies that make all this possible, Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) is without any doubt one of the most important. As a kind of WDM technology, DWDM has the capability to send multiple signals on the same fiber, using different wavelengths. DWDM devices combine the output from several optical transmitters for transmission across a single optical fiber. At the receiving end, another DWDM device separates the combined optical signals and passes each channel to an...

Cable support system requires loading capacity, grounding, material, finishes, mechanical protection and cable trays commonly used for cable management in commercial and industrial construction. Cable support systems include cable tray, raceway and J-Hook, among which J-hooks are a flexible and cost-effective solution for support especially when cables are installed in limited areas that cannot contain cable trays or raceways.

J-Hook

What Is J-Hook?

J-hook, as its name suggested, looks like the letter “J”. It is usually made of galvanized steel or sometimes of plastic polymers, allowing for both indoor and outdoor installation. J-hooks are widely used for cable support because they are easy to reconfigure, offering flexibility, speed...

With the lightning fast changes of today’s technology, staying on the cutting edge can be a great challenge. A company’s data center and infrastructures have become one of the most strategic assets it owns, and conventional wisdom says that in order to support topline business growth, companies must spend money to make money.

However, this axiom is not true when it comes to optical transceivers. Using 3rd-party optics instead of name brand optics from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is a smart and innovative way to embrace changes in the dynamic networking and data center hardware markets, while protecting your bottom line by not paying exorbitant prices. This article will briefly explain the value and advantages that...

The OADM, short for optical add drop multiplexer, is one of the key components for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) and ultra wide wavelength division multiplexing (UW-WDM) optical networks. OADM technology is used to cost effectively access part of the bandwidth in the optical domain being passed through the in-line amplifiers with minimum amount of electronics.

An OADM can be considered as a specific type of optical cross-connect, widely used in wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems for multiplexing and routing fiber optic signals. They selectively add and drop individual or sets of wavelength channels from a dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) multi-channel stream. OADMs are used to cost effectively...
