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.
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.
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...
RF coaxial connectors provide vital RF links in communications, broadcast, EMC testing, commercial and military, as well as test and measurement fields. This article provides guidance and insight in choosing connectors best suited to accommodate your specific application.
