Essential Testing for MPO Systems

Working with cabling systems that feature multifiber push-on connectors (MPOs) is a new and potentially challenging endeavor for many technicians. That’s why understanding the importance of MPO connector cleanliness, polarity and continuity, as well as how to test each of these characteristics is crucial to ensuring optimal performance. This webinar will review the basic checks you need to make before turning up MPO-based fiber-optic cabling systems and explore each of the three tests in detail, including the potential risks of omitting any of them

  • How smart building technology helps ensure a safe return to work and travel Recorded: Jun 16 2021 70 mins
    Brian Davis, Mike Colburn, Michael Blake, Linda Lee & Pat Sweeney
    Since March of 2020 the Covid-19 global pandemic has virtually eliminated non-critical in-person work activity as well as almost all leisure travel and lodging. Now that vaccines are becoming more widely available, many employers are starting to make transition plans to bring workers back into the office and even allow some to travel again. Additionally, more families are booking vacations and travel plans for the Summer and Fall and will be welcomed back by the various hotels and resorts. While safety guidelines are relaxed, building owners and hospitality chains still need to account for optimizing indoor conditions for the health and well-being of tenants and occupants.

    This panel of experts will discuss how a holistic approach to making buildings smarter can both ensure optimal safety and put workers and travelers at ease. We will discuss how a common assessment for smart buildings can help ensure that buildings are not only safe, but that the smart technology investment allows for building owners and operators to achieve their desired smart outcomes and increase the value of their asset.

    Featured speakers include:

    Brian Davis, Corning
    Michael Blake, HTNG
    Mike Colburn, AECOM
    Dr. Linda Lee, UVAngel

  • Garantice su Infraestructura física en fibra óptica de acuerdo al ANSI/TIA-568 Recorded: Jun 15 2021 63 mins
    Jim Davis and Jaime Reyes, Fluke Networks
    La fibra óptica es un excelente medio de transmisión para comunicaciones de alta velocidad en distancias cortas y largas. Cada día más usuarios optan por este medio de comunicación para sus enlaces de comunicaciones, ya que nos ofrece un mayor ancho de banda, facilidad de instalación y medición del desempeño.

    La TIA ha desarrollado estándares para edificios comerciales y centros de datos que garantizan que el cableado instalado admitirá las aplicaciones actuales y futuras.

    En esta charla introductoria, conversamos acerca de las aplicaciones más comunes de los cables de fibra óptica, como los que se utilizan en las redes troncales y los centros de datos, así como las aplicaciones emergentes para admitir edificios inteligentes y redes PON-LAN. Revisaremos a detalle sobre los diferentes tipos de fibra para fibras multimodo (OM3 / 4/5) y monomodo (OS1a / OS2), así como los tipos de conectores más comunes como SC, LC y MPO / MTP.

    La capacidad de una fibra óptica para soportar una aplicación determinada depende en gran medida de la longitud de la fibra y de la pérdida de inserción o atenuación de la señal transmitida. En esta presentación analizaremos los requisitos para algunas velocidades comunes de transmisión como Gigabit Ethernet y para algunas aplicaciones futuras como 400 Gigabit.

    La prueba de desempeño “Nivel I” (pérdida, longitud y polaridad) es esencial para determinar si una fibra está instalada correctamente y explicaremos cómo se realiza esta prueba.
    Finalmente, hablaremos del problema más común y evitable en la fibra óptica y tiene que ver con la suciedad que puede contaminar los conectores de la misma; explicaremos técnicas sencillas para inspección y limpieza de sus conectores de fibra, de manera que podamos garantizar el desempeño de su red.

  • Rethinking Edge Strategies in the COVID environment Recorded: Feb 4 2021 72 mins
    Robert Reid, Panduit; Mark Dehmlow, Panduit
    2020 was to be the year of Edge; the global pandemic has determined a shift in that outcome. COVID-19 has limited the adoption of Edge solutions and the trajectory of deployments. Further, remote work has caused us all to rethink our Edge strategies, Edge solutions are now less defined by physical locations and more enabled through network services.

    Recent developments in the fiber transceiver roadmap enable higher speed/lower latency and resilient edge computing hardware. This webinar will also cover the relevancy of lower cost multimode optics solutions as a “go-to” technology for edge compute ‘pods’ that deploy leaf-spine type fabrics and 50G+ switch to server interconnect.

    Join us to hear in greater detail what Edge now looks like and how physical infrastructure solutions enable the new Edge paradigm.

  • Assessing Smart Buildings – Planning Your Future Starts Today Recorded: Nov 17 2020 71 mins
    Brian Davis, Corning, Luke Lucas, T-Mobile, Jesse Carillo, Hines; Rob Murchison, Intelligent Buildings
    What will your smart building be capable of in 10, 25, or even 50 years? What is driving change today and how will it impact buildings and cities in the future? As we are only in the dawn of the new IOT-age, this discussion will look at the horizon to understand what digital transformation will enable for tenants, owners and investors. With new wireless technologies like 5G and Wi-Fi 6 coming to market and more smart devices to connect and secure every day, our expert panel will discuss what building owners and managers need to plan for ahead of the coming wave of innovative smart technologies.
  • Rethinking Design-Build for Future-Ready Smart Buildings Recorded: Oct 20 2020 63 mins
    Gayla Arrindell, Corning and Chris Andrews, JE Dunn
    The amenities and connectivity that building owners and tenants expect today are much different than they were 30 years ago. So why are we still designing and building networks the same way? In this webinar, JE Dunn partners with Corning to discuss smart building technologies and the importance of having early involvement of all stakeholders in the planning and design phase of a project. From a construction perspective, this can help ensure that unnecessary, costly infrastructure is taken out of the design up front instead of trying to accommodate the desired technology later at a greater cost. And from an IT approach, this early involvement can ensure the correct future-ready network is implemented most efficiently, enabling them to provide a total connected experience for the end customers and scale for future technologies as they arise.

    Brian Davis, Corning; Luke Lucas, T-Mobile; Dan Michaud, Arup; Ryan Garner, RYCOM, Chelsea Collier, Smart Cities Connect
    The shift to intelligent buildings starts with a new way of thinking around how we design, plan, construct and maintain buildings. When network infrastructure is prioritized at the same level as other building utilities, the result is a safer, more sustainable and productive environments for building occupants. TIA will host its latest Assessing Smart Buildings webinar with industry experts and address network considerations to help support new technologies that are no longer nice to haves, but must haves. In this webinar, we will examine the financial impacts of designing smart, and discuss the benefits of a “wireless-first” approach and why more owners and developers are adopting this new “unwiring” of their buildings.
