    Bend Insensitive Multimode Fiber - Is the Reward Worth the Risk?

    Bend Insensitive MultiMode Fiber (BIMMF) was introduced to the market in 2009 and through marketing efforts has caused the industry to consider its usage. Multiple fiber manufacturers now offer 50 ?m BIMMFs of various designs, all providing reduced loss when the fiber is bent. However, it is always wise to...

    Seven Basic Rules for Configuration, Installation and Administration

    The SYSTIMAX InstaPATCH 360 System utilizes MPO array fiber connectors for plug-and-play connectivity. The InstaPATCH 360 System is intentionally flexible in its implementation of array fiber technology, component design and component portfolio to allow network designers almost infinite network topology options. This white paper provides relevant background information regarding MPO...

    Are you Confident that Your Optical Fiber Infrastructure Can Support High Data Rate Applications?

    In 2009, TIA 492-AAAD was finalized, making OM4 laser-optimized fiber a standards recognized solution that offered a new high bandwidth multimode fiber option to the industry. Following close behind, new high data rate 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet technologies were standardized in June 2010 by IEEE, referencing OM4 media and...

    Into the Clouds?

    To better understand cloud computing, it is best to look at the characteristics of cloud computing. The principal characteristic that defines a cloud computing environment is the fact that the application being utilized is delivered over the network, instead of being locally processed. An example would be using a browser...

    Understanding 40G and 100G Ethernet Distances and Trade-Offs on OM3 and OM4 Fibers

    The IEEE 802.3ba amendment that will add 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s rates to the Ethernet standard is nearing completion, scheduled for publication in mid 2010. The draft currently specifies supportable distances of 100 meters on OM3 fiber and 150 meters on OM4 fiber for both rates. The common distances...

    Patterns of Success: Antenna Patterns to Play a Key Role in WiMAX Success

    As the wireless data market grows, deploying wireless technologies with high spectral efficiency will be of paramount importance. The more effectively systems can manage signal interference, the higher the cell capacity, and the more profitable the system. In short, the degree to which WiMAX succeeds will depend in large part...

    The Benefits of SYSTIMAX TeraSPEED Zero Water Peak Optical Fiber

    Single-mode fiber has long been known for its high bandwidth at a few specific wavelengths. Today's applications, such as 40 and 100 gigabit Ethernet, as well as fiber to-the-home, are pushing the limits of legacy fiber. One can use specialized fibers that are optimized for long haul systems, but these...

    Choosing the Correct Cable for Security CCTV

    Coaxial cable has been the standard of video transmission for years. It consists of a conductor (usually bare copper) surrounded by a polyethylene dielectric. Coax is shielded with a metal braid and/or foil to protect against electromagnetic interference (EMI). Coax is a popular and proven technology. Because almost all CCTV...
