  • Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.

    Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.

    In this presentation Glyn Bowden will show what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.
  • As most IT Pros are aware, as of April 8th, 2014, Microsoft will stop releasing security patches for Windows XP. Unfortunately, most folks will not be able to migrate all Windows XP machines by that deadline. How will you limit the security risks posed by these now vulnerable assets? Join us for this webinar outlining practical strategies to help you cover your assets.
    In this session we'll cover:
    The primary attack vectors you need to consider
    Immediate actions you can take to limit the exposure of your XP assets
    Warning signs to watch out for that could signal an attack

  • LAN Standards, News & Trends: 2014 Update Recorded: Apr 3 2014 69 mins
    Join the Fiber Optics Technology Consortium for an update on premises cabling standards and architectures.
  • Permanent Link Testing of MPO Cable Plant for Higher Speed Channels Recorded: Dec 12 2013 82 mins
    For new high-speed optical networks supporting 40Gbps and 100Gbps Ethernet over multimode fiber (MMF) that use MPO style connector systems, it is critical to have accurate data indicating the performance of the permanent links deployed in the network. It is also important to assure that the links that are deployed by end-users can meet the manufacturer's warranty requirements.

    In this presentation, various test methods and best practices, and their impact on measurement accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility are discussed. Use cases for testing MPO-based cable plant supporting higher speed applications are developed with the support of new and recently introduced MPO test sets and reference MPO test cords.
  • The Optical Fiber Ribbon Solution for the 10G to 40G-!00G Data Center Migration Recorded: Dec 5 2013 43 mins
    As transmission speeds necessary to handle the growing daily network traffic of the data center increase, the migration from existing systems to 40G/100G requires a new optical fiber paradigm. For the first time, parallel optics is required to deliver the necessary speeds in the network. To use existing installed infrastructure efficiently and maintain the necessary fiber alignment, optical fiber cables constructed of fiber ribbons and associated connectivity provide a most efficient and cost effective solution to meet the needs of this network protocol.
  • Fiber Optic Connectors, Designs, Applications & Choices Recorded: Nov 21 2013 79 mins
    Fiber optic connectors have been around for many years, nearly since the creation of optical fiber itself. A key component of optical fiber is its ability to transmit light signals over long distances without attenuation, in other words without light lost along the optical path. There are many types of connectors to choose from as well as methods to connectorize fiber cables.
  • Standards-based Design & Testing of Passive Optical LAN Solutions Recorded: Jul 18 2013 87 mins
    Passive Optical LANs are changing the way we think about designing the local area network. This webinar will provide an introduction to POL technology, compare POL and traditional Ethernet switching architectures, review the TIA standards applicable to the design & testing of POL solutions and address considerations such as splitters, connectors, fiber counts, and more.
  • The future VCSEL-LOMMF landscape in data centers Recorded: Jun 27 2013 62 mins
    As data rates continue to spiral upwards, those planning new data centers seek to deploy the most cost-effective solutions. Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) coupled with laser-optimized multimode fiber have provided the lowest cost and lowest power optical solutions through 10GE & 16GFC and are continuing this trend at 32GFC, 40GE, & 100GE, while alternate technologies continue to emerge. Meanwhile future data rates of 128GFC & 400GE are under study. The 40GE and 100GE solutions use parallel fiber transmission which changes the port appearance at patch panels and electronic faceplates. But choosing the right polarity method enables graceful upgrades and simple circuit administration.
  • Optical Fiber and Cabling Standards for Tomorrow’s Data Center Recorded: Jun 6 2013 55 mins
