  • Taking Your Network to 40/100G Ethernet
    Taking Your Network to 40/100G Ethernet

    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.

  • Overcoming Space Challenges And Reducing Costs With Small-Diameter Cable Technology
    Overcoming Space Challenges And Reducing Costs With Small-Diameter Cable Technology

    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.

  • Application Note: Cable Loss Masking Effect

    The masking effect of cable loss may cause your antenna to "appear" to perform more efficiently than is actually the case. In fact, it is possible to measure apparently acceptable VSWR or return loss levels even though your antenna may be completely out of operation. The purpose of this article is to provide an understanding of cable loss masking effect and explain how to avoid these pitfalls...

  • Proving Installed Performance Of Airframe Microwave Assemblies
    Proving Installed Performance Of Airframe Microwave Assemblies

    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.
