Fiber is vital to data centers. This network infrastructure is constantly increasing the speed and efficiency, enabling higher data throughput; however, fiber cabling and connections lose a certain amount of signal. Today’s standard of high performance is Ultra-Low Loss. James Young explains this topic as part of the CommScope Definitions blog series.
Do you want to know how fiber technology has improved information security? It’s a lot easier than you think. In fact, fiber networks are a lot harder to crack than those you see in old movies. In this Fiber Friday vlog, Erik Gronvall gives you two ways fiber has improved information security for all of us.
The road to terabit Ethernet is long and winding…. but terabit Ethernet IS coming. CommScope’s Jim Young walks us through the Ethernet Roadmap, and why it’s a map worth following.
Single mode vs. multimode fiber. The decision rests with the customer, as the type of fiber is not always one-size-fits-all. CommScope’s Anthony Haupt has the 5 characteristics to keep in mind when deciding on single mode.
As the saying goes, the devil is in the details. Truer words have never been spoken when you look at the details in an FTTX deployment. They can make or break a project. So when one company needed to train their technicians, they turned to CommScope to ensure accuracy. Jessica Olstad explains in this blog post.
We need to embrace more fiber-to-the-home deployments. If we want to enjoy the fruits of great connectivity, then we need stop being afraid of fiber deployment projects that may come close to our homes or even our backyards. In this Fiber Friday vlog, Erik Gronvall talks about consumer demand for more bandwidth and the “not in my backyard” syndrome related to FTTH.
There’s a worldwide construction project going on that you probably haven’t even noticed. It has nothing to do with building roads or skyscrapers, but it does require an infrastructure. A digital one. Guest blogger Mark Monroe with Infrastructure Masons explains why he needs YOU to help.
It doesn’t matter if you live on a farm or in the big city. Demand is demand is demand. And it’s not waning. So, how can carriers – and end users – benefit from increased rural broadband? In this blog, Chad Engel has one company’s story that you need to see to believe.
Cellular operators spend millions of dollars each year on spectrum allocation. Despite this, users still might encounter mobile reception problems. Read Dr. Mohamed Nadder Hamdy’s blog on how operators can mitigate interference.
Before 5G is upon us, service providers want to get the most out of their current fiber networks. One way they can is by using passive wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) devices. In this Fiber Friday vlog, Wes Oxlee explains the advantages this technology gives services providers getting ready for 5G.
