Another new year is upon us. That means most of us made resolutions to better our lives. Let's be honest, some of us have probably strayed from them already. However, if one of your resolutions was to become a fiber optics specialist, then I can help.
The emerging and ever increasing market
for fiber communications is one that
puzzles a lot of people. Those in this industry need to understand market trends and development for fiber optics, which
is now encroaching into many aspects of our lives. Fiber optic cabling is becoming
a vital infrastructure in three major areas, and we might not even be aware of
it: commercial real estate, intelligent building networks and data centers.
Commercial Real Estate
commercial buildings are challenging high-tech facilities. These buildings must
provide efficient and cost-effective
environments for the information-age-based worker. This can be done through
optimization of its structure, systems, services and management, as well as the
connections between systems. Productivity is the driving force in designing and
building these high-tech buildings for the highly mobile worker.
is fundamental to providing voice, data, video, security and access control
services. To integrate these systems and their services, the cabling system must provide a common
infrastructure (cabling and cabling
distribution method). The convergence or integration of wired and wireless systems over fiber
optics offers scalability, enabling addition or removal of devices wherever and
whenever required (i.e., moves, additions and changes). It facilitates analog
to digital and IP networked migration while enabling new IT growth to be accounted for up front.
buildings harness technology and link building systems to supply more
efficiency, higher productivity and increased comfort. The global trend among
innovative buildings is toward a comprehensive infrastructure solution. Most
buildings feature systems where each requiring its own control, management and
monitoring. Without a common
infrastructure linking them, these systems can accumulate a lifetime of unnecessary
a fiber optic backbone, all of a building’s systems—from building automation
systems and communications systems, to video surveillance and access control—are
converged over the same, common infrastructure. This provides an enhanced level
of efficiency and cross-system performance.
supporting the needs of a single company or thousands of different clients,
continuously operating data
centers/headends are essential to the flow, processing and storage of business critical information. Today's
data center must deliver a defined set of services to users on demand, with
little to no interruption.
extreme service reliability is paramount to data center installations and must
be addressed with high-performance, fiber optic infrastructure solutions that
allow high density, as well as ease of deployment and use. To support the use
of increasingly complex applications such as cloud computing, content delivery, e-commerce and data backup, the need for scalable infrastructures, power and cooling, and higher bandwidth
continue to grow— intensifying the demand for better connectivity solutions in
the data center.
optic infrastructure solutions are being engineered for optimal deployment of
mission-critical enterprise networks and data centers, supporting network
connections anywhere from 1Gps to 1Tbps.
