With New High-Density Fiber Connectors Comes Tier 1 Testing Challenges

In response to the need for higher density in data centers, a couple of new fiber connectors have recently been introduced to the market. Because these connectors are new, test equipment with these interfaces has not yet been introduced, which presents some Tier 1 testing challenges and a shift from the traditional recommended 1-jumper reference method. Let’s take a closer look at these connector types and how to test them.

You Too Can Transform How You Do Business

Last week, Fluke Networks announced that the number of results uploaded to our LinkWare Live cloud service has exceeded 20 million. If you’re one of the many who contributed to the doubling of total results over the past year, you’ve already witnessed the benefits and cost savings of managing cabling certification jobs anytime, anywhere, with anyone on any device.

¿Qué es (+All) y cuándo debo elegirlo?

When it comes to testing twisted-pair cabling, there are some key testing parameters required for certifying a permanent link to industry standards—parameters like insertion loss, NEXT, PSNEXT, ACR-N, PSACR-N, ACR-F, PSACR-F and return loss. And when it comes to testing Cat 6A (or Class Fa for ISO11801 standards), we also have PSANEXT and PSAACR-F for alien crosstalk testing.

¿Qué pasó con el empalme mecánico?

When it comes to joining two or more optical fibers together, fusion splicing whereby cleaved fibers are aligned and fused by an electric arc provides the lowest loss and strongest, most reliable joint.

While mechanical splice connectors have come a long way and are an ideal field termination method for connectorizing fiber, we rarely hear much anymore about mechanical splicing as a means for joining fibers along a link – even though it eliminates the need for expensive fusion splicing equipment.

So what ever happened to the mechanical splice anyway?

Categoría 6A: un futuro brillante por delante

Todos sabemos que la categoría 6A se considera el cableado de par trenzado de mayor rendimiento que admite velocidades de 10 Gig, y ha existido desde hace más de una década. Por lo tanto, puede que le sorprenda saber que la Categoría 6 (¡ahora con 17 años!) continúa dominando las ventas mundiales de cableado de cobre de par trenzado. Aunque está disminuyendo, incluso la Categoría 5e que se introdujo hace 20 años mantiene una participación significativa en el mercado.

Comprobación en el borde

You’ve probably heard all the buzz about edge data centers. Don’t worry – this doesn’t mean you’ll be testing fiber links while hanging on the side of cliff.  But while you might be testing in new spaces, edge data centers won’t really change what you’re already testing.

So what exactly is an edge data center, anyway? Echemos un vistazo más de cerca.

Prevención del polvo

We know we talk a lot about fiber cleanliness, but let’s face it, contamination of fiber endfaces is still the number one cause of failures – regardless of much we harp on the topic.

You’ve probably often also heard comments surrounding the fact that dust caps are really just dust collectors. Thankfully, there are plenty of manufacturers out there that get it and have responded with shuttered fiber connectivity.

Preparación para Ethernet de un solo par en la empresa

Tal vez ha estado escuchando un rumor recientemente relacionado con Ethernet de un solo par y un par de normas nuevas en desarrollo para admitir Ethernet de 10 Mb/s. Si está pensando que 10 Mb/s es algo obsoleto, probablemente no esté solo. Después de todo, 10BASE-T ha existido desde la década de 1990 y rara vez se usa como una velocidad de señalización en las LAN de nuestros días. Sin embargo, esta última aplicación de 10 Mb/s es algo diferente, y tiene innumerables oportunidades para una amplia gama de dispositivos de IoT de baja velocidad y bajo ancho de banda, todo en un solo par.

¿Por qué una cámara de inspección MPO? | Una entrevista con el gerente de productos

This week, Fluke Networks announced the FI-3000 Fiber Inspector Pro, designed for inspecting the end faces of Multiple Push-On (MPO) fiber connectors.  We sat down with Carolyn Carter, the Senior Product Manager for Certification Tools to get the inside story on this new product.
