A Brief History of Multi-mode Fiber; Are you ready for what’s next?

on 6/21/18 8:00 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Data Center Network Infrastructure
The magnitude of what we can do on any given mobile device has grown exponentially over the past few decades; our productivity is no longer dependent upon the ability to commute to work, but rather our connectivity to those we work with, network around, or hope to engage.

Fiber Optical Networking

Greater Data Speeds but New Challenges to Consider As we begin seeing much higher bandwidth speeds for data communications using fiber optical connections and enter into the non-linear world of photonic communications, many things will change from understanding the basic physics of non-linear photonic communications to the increased need for better plant build-outs, an understanding of optical budgets (referencing signal to noise requirements), maintenance, and a much higher requirement for documentation and record keeping.

Surprise—Copper Cables Still Dominate Industrial Networks

on 2/27/18 8:00 AM By | Patrick Nixdorf | 0 Comments | Network Infrastructure Industrial Ethernet
We’ve been talking a lot about the security implications of the Industrial Ethernet as traditionally closed networks adapt to demands for improved bandwidth and open connectivity. However, cyber attacks aren’t the only things that can bring an industrial network down—you have to make sure you have the right approach to network connectivity as well. Let’s take a look at why copper cabling is so popular for Industrial Ethernet and how network architects can best approach their connectivity options.

[Analysis] Full Duplex Capture in Industrial Networks

on 11/21/17 8:00 AM By | Thomas Tannhauser | 0 Comments | Network Infrastructure TAPs vs SPAN Network Design
Why SPAN Ports Should Not be Used in Security Solutions The convergence of IT and OT in the context of Industry 4.0 has led to a crowded market of security solutions targeting the shop floor on different levels. While the security of the legacy IT systems was part of the initial planning of those systems, the industry now faces the challenge to integrate security solutions in legacy OT systems.

Fiber Facts—Yes, You Do Need to Read This

on 9/5/17 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network Infrastructure Network Design
Just like how network security used to be simple with just a firewall and the live wire, network connectivity used to be simply copper cabling and the popular RJ45 connector. While copper won’t be leaving the data center any time soon, even the most die-hard copper fans can’t deny the growing need for fiber.

The 101 Series: Link Failure Propagation and High Availability

on 8/29/17 8:00 AM By | George Bouchard | 0 Comments | Network Infrastructure Network Design The 101 Series
Many customers that we talk to have more than one Internet connection at their facility. Referred to as a high availability (HA) scenario, this active/active or active/passive link setup ensures customers that when the primary link goes down (because it will fail at some point), traffic can automatically be forced to the secondary link. The following graphic is a basic illustration of how link failure propagation works.
