5G RAN: A Reality Check

High speed and autonomous transportation, remote surgical procedures, and mixed reality experiences are just a few of the upcoming Internet of Things (IoT) technological game changers that require high speed and low latency communications infrastructure. 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) technologies continue to evolve to meet the complex and continually evolving network requirements of IoT applications.

This webcast will explore the latest advances in RAN, including:
• Which technologies will see the earliest deployments?
• How important will the 3.5 GHz band networks (also known as the Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)) be in future 5G applications?
• Will mmWave networks change the game in the last mile?
• How far will the industry advance in real deployments in the next year or two?
• Where are companies participating in this ecosystem investing their money?
• Are there concerns for Return on Investment (ROI) that companies are trying to resolve?

  • Best Practices in Enterprise Fiber Connectivity Dec 12 2019 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Mike Dee, VIAVI Solutions
    Fiber connectivity is essential for the physical infrastructure in any enterprise or data center network. While it certainly has advantages, there are also challenges that come along with fiber. Contamination is the #1 cause of troubleshooting in fiber networks, so it is critical that anyone working with fiber is aware of and implementing best practices when handling, installing, or testing fiber connections. During this one-hour session, we will take a closer look at fiber connectivity and educate attendees on the impact that contamination has on fiber connections and network performance. They will also provide guidance on best practices and standards that are in place to ensure clean connections.

  • Minimizing Fiber Cable Plant ‘Angst’ in Migrating from 10G thru 400G Dec 10 2019 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Robert Reid, Panduit
    For high-speed multimode fiber based optical networks operating at 10/40/100Gb/s today and 200-400 Gb/s in the near future, it is more critical than ever for network operators and designers to have an accurate knowledge of performance specifications of the active and passive fiber optic components use to make up the network. During this session, we will cover the importance of fiber, distribution hardware and pathways selection and how these can affect signal integrity for networks operating at high gigabit data rates.

    To achieve successful migration to 40 or 100-200-400 Gb, it is important to consider the fiber/transceiver options and cost implications (particularly the cost of managing high volumes of fiber cable on distribution frames and in pathways). We will show the advantages of a high-performance MM fiber coupled with BiDi transceivers as a cost-effective migration option that proves very practical in minimizing fiber distribution element ‘sprawl’ and assuring that cable pathways are manageable.

  • Will the Fiber Work? Recorded: Dec 4 2019 60 mins
    Jim Davis, Fluke Networks
    For decades, fiber optics have been inspected and cleaned to ensure the proper passage of light. While fiber optics inspection and cleaning fiber connectors is not new, it is growing in importance as links with increasingly higher data rates are driving decreasingly small loss budgets. With less tolerance for overall light loss, the attenuation through adapters must be lower than ever before. This can be achieved by properly inspecting and cleaning fiber optic cables when they are installed or while making moves, or changes. During this one-hour session, Jim Davis from Fluke Network will introduce us to the basic requirements to support our applications.

  • Testing the network’s fiber foundation to support 5G, IoT and more. Recorded: Jul 25 2019 64 mins
    Gwenn Amice
    Fiber is going deeper everywhere. It is a key enabler of the upcoming 5G technologies that are going to need a rock-solid foundation. The high density of fiber rollouts ahead means a lot of outsourced field jobs. The challenge which outsourcing brings is reduced visibility and control over the network infrastructure. How will you keep on top of things in an age where you need valuable insights to act quickly?

    And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. High working force turnover is taking its toll on field expertise. How do you keep frontline technicians updated on best testing practices when it comes to fiber optics?

    Discover a new approach to testing that will empower technicians to go further in guaranteeing a more reliable fiber foundation, all that without breaking the bank but by investing smartly in what amounts to lower total costs of ownership.

    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.

    This webinar is approved for one BICSI CEC.
