  • Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method
    Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method Betsy Conroy & Brian Duval, Siemon Company Recorded: Jan 30 2018 57 mins
    There are many considerations when it comes to choosing your fiber termination method – from the number of connections and the application being supported, to performance and overall required time to go live. While pre-terminated fiber solutions offer significant benefits in terms of factor-terminated performance and ease of deployment, they do require proper planning and predetermining of lengths, as well as longer lead times. Choosing a field termination method like fusion splicing or mechanical splice connectors comes with its own set of additional considerations, including cost, required skill set and labor efficiency. This webinar will examine the various types of fiber termination methods available today, providing pros and cons of each method and basic considerations to help you choose the fiber termination that’s right for your specific fiber deployment, including key questions to ask and termination time comparisons and analysis.

  • Where Do We Go From Here?  A Fork in the Road for Multimode Fiber
    Where Do We Go From Here? A Fork in the Road for Multimode Fiber Robert Reid, Panduit Recorded: Dec 19 2017 77 mins
    This talk will explore the evolution of multimode fiber from inception to current time against the historical transceiver roadmap. We will explore various transceiver form-factors with respect to capability, technology risk, density and cost vs. fiber types that have been deployed (and those yet to be widely deployed). Both transceivers and supported fibers will also be discussed with respect to the evolution of standards that support them.
    Attendees will earn 1 BICSI CEC.

  • AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers
    AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers Guylain Barlow, Viavi Recorded: Nov 20 2017 60 mins
    Data Centers vary widely in nature and can be roughly classified as hyperscale, multi-tenant, and private. A critical and common component in the operation of such data centers is the installation and maintenance of the physical cabling infrastructure. A fundamental change taking place is the evolution from cables using classic connectors on copper (RJ-45) or fiber optics (LC) to cables terminated by pluggables such as SFP or QSFP. This represents a new challenge as these cables, called Active Optical Cable (AOC) or Direct Attach Copper (DAC), are not easily validated and tested.

    Attendees will earn 1 BICSI CEC for attending.
  • Virtualizing Media Broadcast: TV Transformed
    Virtualizing Media Broadcast: TV Transformed Steve Reynolds - Imagine Communications, Limor Schafman - TIA Recorded: Nov 17 2017 46 mins
    Broadcast media is undergoing wholesale change due to demands from consumers, competitors, and creative opportunity for new types of content. Virtualization at multiple points of the distribution and delivery network is recognized as the only way to meet these demands. This webcast will review in detail the technologies involved in the virtualization of broadcast media, from network, to master control centers, to edge device delivery.
