This paper examines USSOCOM's emerging requirements for new and updated submersible equipment, with a focus on the factors that qualify such equipment for operation in combat environments. Specifically, it addresses the components most often considered the weakest link – namely, electrical cable connectors. Typically, significant changes in military equipment requirements such as this spawn innovation in the private sector. So the paper concludes by reviewing the types of equipment for which the 20-meter submersible capability may soon become standard.
A recent study conducted for the aerospace industry showed that 29 percent of respondents said the cause of Microwave/RF cable failure or repair is due to damage during installation. Damaged airframe microwave assemblies result in system failures, re-testing, delayed production, increased maintenance downtime, and eventual replacement of the entire setup.
Network service providers are deploying more fiber cables than ever to keep up with bandwidth demands. While that’s good news for those who want more bandwidth, it’s not so good for the technicians needing access to existing circuits or the ability to install new ones. In order to help central offices, headends, and other areas of a service network, a microcable patchcord was developed to slow the rate of cable pile-up and ease congestion in fiber-management systems.
With the ratification of new industry standards and increased demands on data center throughput, 40/100G Ethernet will be an integral component of the next generation data center. In fact, it is already an emerging influence on how organizations plan, build and operate their existing data center architectures. In this paper, we will discuss the deep impact that this network speed transition has on data center cabling infrastructure, and the decisions that organizations will need to make to accommodate these changes.
