Network Solutions for Commercial Real Estate

The Foundation for Future Commercial Smart Building Connectivity

Reliable connectivity has become the expectation in our increasingly connected world – it’s classified as a “fourth utility” for many commercial real estate professionals who consider it as crucial to their employees and clients as electricity, water, and HVAC. As emerging trends like 5G rollouts, Internet of Things (IoT), smart buildings require increased performance from LAN and building system networks, building owners will have to reimagine their networks to remain competitive.

That’s why Corning offers total infrastructure solutions for your passive LAN, that provide unparalleled scalability and flexibility now and for future demands. Our flexible, future-ready fiber solutions allow commercial real estate managers to build high-quality networks that support multiple in-building applications – including cellular, Wi-Fi, BMS, LAN, security, and other IP-based services.

Corning’s in-building network solutions allow building owners to address today’s communications needs and lay a fiber-based foundation for future connectivity that lasts the life of a building – with no ripping and replacing of outgrown cabling required.

The practical IoT: Planning and designing for the arrival of the Internet of Things

Much has been written about the Internet of Things (IoT) over the last few years, discussing both the explosive growth projections in the number of attached devices and the anticipated value to global business that they will bring. The growth projections alone are staggering. From the chart in this article, you can see that the numerical growth from 2018 to 2019 is 3.52 billion IoT devices globally.

By the year 2020, the IoT will comprise more than 30 billion connected devices. Find out how this impacts your network in the article originally printed in CablingInstall magazine.

5G Networks Impact on Fiber-Optic Cabling Requirements

The possibilities seem endless, making it possible that 5G will be revolutionary rather than evolutionary in its demand on fiber infrastructure.

5G networks promise to connect people and things through intelligent networks and applications, all generating an immense amount of data. It seeks to provide the best of all performance factors while simultaneoulsy connecting more devices. These network advancements will enable and inspire a new wave of computing and technological innovation that will change the way we live and work. But before 5G becomes a reality, the network infrastructure has to be in place to support the billions of devices and the trillions of megabits of data that will flood the network. Let's take a look at how 5G will impact optical-fiber requirements.

The Future of Your Building’s Cabling

The world of commercial real estate is irrevocably changing. From offices to retail structures, the most important factors when considering commercial buildings are no longer physical attributes such as location, aesthetics, and amenities. Instead, advances in technology have emerged as key differentiators between effective and ineffective infrastructures.

While the pace of change for technology is rapid, transformation within commercial real estate is slow. Emerging technologies, such as 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), are poised to disrupt conventional approaches to commercial infrastructure and create winners and losers. Former Class A buildings may no longer be able to...

The Future of Building Cabling

How far can we go with copper?

In the LAN environment, the reality is that many companies still aren’t dealing with the kinds of bandwidth demands that would make most copper classes and categories ineffective. CAT6A, which supports data rates of 10G up to 100 metres, has seen a growth in popularity as a minimum requirement for many hospitals and universities. For most businesses however, CAT6 and a 1G maximum speed is sufficient.

In higher speed environments, the advent of Category 8 and associated solutions has provided an attractive option for installers. This supports up to 40G across copper twisted pair - the fastest data transmission local networks with structured copper cabling can achieve today....
