Myths and Realities of Enterprise Cable Plants

Presented by

Andrew Froehlich - Founder, Inframomentum and Steven Cowles, Product Line and Technical Services Manager at AEM

About this talk

As network infrastructures are replaced with new and faster network switches and wireless devices, IT leaders are often left wondering if their existing cable plants and wireless landscapes are ready to cope. Everything from multi-gigabit Ethernet to Wi-Fi 6E and IoT connectivity is on the table. Added to this concern is the growing number of Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices that require increasingly higher Wattage outputs. In this episode of The Network Effect, we have invited Steven Cowles, Product Line and Technical Services Manager at AEM. During this conversation, we’ll discuss: - When it’s time to consider the replacement of existing copper and fiber cable plants within corporate offices and data centers - The difference between cable validation and certification - Various twisted-pair and fiber standards and when to deploy them - Troubleshooting best practices for wired and wireless networks - Use case examples of emerging standards such as Single Pair Ethernet (SPE)
