Surprise—Copper Cables Still Dominate Industrial Networks

on 2/27/18 8:00 AM By | Patrick Nixdorf | 0 Comments | Industrial Ethernet Network Infrastructure
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 | TAPs vs SPAN Network Design Network Infrastructure
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 | The 101 Series Network Infrastructure Network Design
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.

MTP® Brand Connectors versus Generic MPO in Fiber Networks

Generic MPO connectors have been the standard for network architects who require density and strive for shorter install times, as well as simplified cabling infrastructure for their 40G/100G data centers. Multi-mode MPO connectors can pack 12, 24, or 72 fibers into one ferrule, this increased density has bolstered its appeal, especially in the space-restricted data center market. However, in higher fiber count MPO connectors, an additional loss penalty has come to be expected due to the difficulty in achieving physical contact across all of the fibers. Learn how US Conec's MTP® brand connectors boast the lowest dB loss...

[Get the Data You Want] Simplify PCI DSS Compliance with an MSSP

on 4/20/17 9:04 AM By | Darrick Kristich | 0 Comments | Network Infrastructure Network Security
For years, the financial services industry was the most targeted industry for sophisticated cyber attackers (and some not so sophisticated). This was never too surprising—attackers often follow the money, starting with the low hanging fruit. Out of all the credit card breaches that have been made public in the last several years, not many (if any) companies were truly compliant Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliance. At the same time, being compliant also doesn’t mean that you are truly protecting the data that is important.
