  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Crossing Enemy Lines – The Growing Demand For Submersible Technology

    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.

  • 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...
