Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Graphene: The Next Super Material for the Communications Industry?

There has been a great deal of interest in Graphene. Some would call it hype. But with its flexibility and heat conduction properties, this atom-thin layer of carbon, which has been touted as the strongest material ever measured, has enormous product and market potential for the ICT industry.

Because graphene is conductive at nano-scale layers, it can be used for lightweight, flexible yet durable display screens, electric circuits and solar cells. It is also currently being made into inks and 3D printable materials. Imagine what this can mean for the design of communications devices, or circuitry, or batteries. Imagine the impact on wearables, the design and development of IoT sensors, or large scale retail store windows. Graphene holds a great deal of promise.
Despite the potential graphene promises, it has taken longer than expected to transform research and development into commercialized product.

This webcast will explore both the tremendous potential harbored in those structured carbon atoms and the business reality. The focus will be on the use of the material for the ICT industry. We will also look at other use cases that may be the first steps on graphene’s path to commercial application.

  • Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data Recorded: May 8 2018 72 mins
    Jim Davis, Fluke Networks
    This presentation will look at some of the requirements for field testing Single Mode fiber to make sure it will support the new applications you are planning to run on it. Starting with inspection and cleaning it will answer many of those little questions, “can I use that click pen from UPC multimode connectors on APC connectors?, How do I inspect APC connectors?”

    From there the presentation will move on to the calculation of a loss budget, what is the correct budget, and what wavelengths should be tested. We will look at the best practices in Tier I loss testing to assure the minimum of uncertainty in our test results. The presentation will explain how this can be done for both single connectors such as LC and SC as well as MPO connections.

    Finally, we will look at troubleshooting the fiber using an OTDR and give an introduction to the identification of common events in Single Mode OTDR traces.

  • Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method Recorded: Jan 30 2018 57 mins
    Betsy Conroy & Brian Duval, Siemon Company
    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.

  • AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers Recorded: Nov 20 2017 60 mins
    Guylain Barlow, Viavi
    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.
