5G Networks’ Impact on Fiber-Optic Cabling Requirements

5G Networks’ Impact on Fiber-Optic Cabling

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 simultaneously 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.

Distance, Wattage Considerations Drive Power Decisions

Distance, Wattage Considerations Drive Decisions

Power over Ethernet – It’s an old concept with new applications happening today. As the concept is being re-imagined, why not also re-imagine your infrastructure to align data and power for the future of the building. New power solutions today enable high power options with traditional low-voltage labor and safety. Digital Electricity is one of those options that parallel the distance and space savings of optical fiber, reducing runs of CAT cabling and enabling PoE as it is being imagined today and in the near future.

Considerations in Outside Fiber-Optic Cable Design

Considerations in Outside Fiber-Optic Cable Design

The Outside Plant network is evolving due to ever increasing bandwidth demands and the push to drive fiber deeper and deeper into the network. Because of these trends we are seeing rising demand for fiber counts greater than 1000 fibers in one cable and simultaneously the desire to pack more and more fiber into a smaller cross sectional footprint. These demands require installers and designers to leverage different cable designs to meet current network complexity.
