We’ve heard of “greening” a data center, but what do you do with the existing data center you have? How do you know if you’re being as efficient as possible? We ask – and answer – those questions in this blog post by CommScope’s Victor Lopes.
MoCA isn’t a fancy chocolate coffee. But it is a great organization that develops networking protocols. CommScope’s Mark Alrutz introduces you to MoCA and the three things to pay attention to in coax cable networks.
There is one word that every broadband subscriber must know—connectivity. It’s not only a word, but a way of life. Connectivity helps subscribers to learn, entertain and communicate. There are several ways subscribers are staying connected. In the second and final part of James Donovan’s blog series, he summarizes the final three technologies operators are using to deploy broadband.
Smartphones are no longer a luxury, but a way of life. Thanks to this technological wonder, the demand for bandwidth is high, even in an emerging market like Africa. In this Fiber Friday vlog, Pape Ndaw explains how a fixed-line fiber network is necessary for African operators to keep up with their subscribers’ bandwidth demands.
Koen ter Linde explains the importance of cabling safety regulations within our hospitals, buildings and universities. On 1 July 2017, all cables must have a CE marking on the packaging label, meaning the product meets health and safety standards required for commercial use. CommScope customers can rest assured they will have access to cabling which meets the EU’s Cable Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
IoT technology continues to evolve as consumers figure out how to incorporate devices in their daily lives. This presents an opportunity for operators, but the challenge is how their network will support the billions of devices. Jessica Epley discusses some of the consumer uses for IoT and points to converged networks as solution for enjoying a digital lifestyle.
Taking a look at buzz words in the latest blog post: IoT, outsourcing, MTDC. They’re enough to make your head spin, especially if you’re a data center manager. In a guest blog post, Jennifer Sweeper with CommScope partner Digital Realty takes a hard look at multi-tenant data centers.
The concept of “greening” is everywhere lately, but is there a place for it in data centers? You bet. In fact, power usage is a major focus in the years to come. CommScope’s Victor Lopes talks about it in Part 1 of his green series.
It’s nice to know that if your data center needs an upgrade, you don’t have to re-do everything in the infrastructure. That’s if you at least have the right cabling to begin with. CommScope’s Dave Tanis shines a light on structured cabling and what it means for smooth transitions.
Did you know that deploying bend insensitive fibers doesn’t mean your network will be error free? These fibers must be installed correctly and checked to make sure that too much bend is not interfering with the signal. In this Fiber Friday vlog, Daniel Daems explains how uncontrolled and sharp bends must be limited to maintain the stability in your fiber network.
