Forward-Looking Cable Infrastructure and SMART Building for the Future

Forward-Looking Cable Infrastructure and SMART Building for The Future

If you happened to jump on the Amazon site this past weekend, you might have noticed something new. Amazon has started to roll out their Alexa compatible ecosystem. The next stage in the Internet of Things (IoT) apparently is not more connectivity to the Internet, but the ability of devices to talk to one another. One interesting addition to this somewhat predictable

Why 4G LTE Gateway Is Still A Win, And Will Be For Sometime To Come

Why 4G LTE Gateway Is Still A Win, And Will Be For Sometime To Come

We hear a lot about 5G these days. Currently 5G is or is about to go live in major cities around the U.S: such as, Houston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. Still others will go live in early 2019. It all depends upon your provider and location. In some ways, 5G is still a ways from becoming a fully-realized technology but it’s definitely on its way.

G.Fast Gen2 Faster Speeds Zooming on the Horizon

G.Fast Gen 2: Faster Speeds Zooming on the Horizon

Thanks to the ongoing competition between Telcos and Cable Providers, broadband technology—the technology that allows high speed internet services over existing infrastructureis getting a whole lot better.

The questions these companies have been trying to answer is: how you get faster service to subscribers while still keeping costs down?

The answer is: G.Fast.

G.Fast has been 3-4 years

Versa Transceiver Technologies Make Multi-Cable Networks Click

Versa Transceiver Technologies Make Multi-Cable Networks Click

Network installers and IT administrators continue the move toward green. To recapture and use existing cabling infrastructures, and allocate the money in their budgets to purchase better devices, savvy thinkers are opting to deploy transceivers.

As you probably already know, a network transceiver spans the gap between Ethernet and coax, Ethernet and fiber, and between

What is 10GBASE-T and Why Is This Technology So Important?

What is 10GBASE-T and Why Is This Technology So Important?

10GBASE-T is a type of Ethernet signaling providing speeds over twisted-pair cabling that go beyond 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) for distances up to 100 meters.

This IEEE 802.3an® standard can reach 2.5 and 5 Gbps over Cat5e and Cat6 cabling.  Depending upon the network infrastructure, signals can potentially reach new speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The recent

PoE Smart Applications for Home, Business, Healthcare & Manufacturing

PoE Smart Applications for Home, Business, Healthcare & Manufacturing

Power over Ethernet (PoE) facilitates network deployment wherever a power outlet is absent. PoE is not only economical in enterprises and vertical markets, but the technology also offers benefits in the home and industrial environments.

If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you may be aware of the exciting advances that LED lighting over PoE networks is

What is the difference between a PoE injector and a PoE splitter?

What is the difference between a PoE injector and a PoE splitter?

The difference between an injector and a splitter is that a PoE injector sends power to PoE equipment that receives data through existing non-POE switches. A splitter also supplies power, but it does so by splitting the power from the data and feeding it to a separate input that a non-PoE compliant device can use.

What is Ethernet technology?

Power

Advantage of Power Over Ethernet (PoE)

What Is The Main Advantage of Power Over Ethernet (PoE)?

The main advantage of Power over Ethernet (PoE) is delivery of data AND power over one Cat5e/Cat6 Ethernet cable. PoE ends the need for AC/DC power supplies and outlets. A remote installation costs less than fiber as no electrician is required. Ethernet cable costs less and is often already installed buildings.

This article will explain the many advantages PoE has to offer. What began as an effort

Spotlight: George Zimmerman of Ethernet Alliance Talks Ethernet Technology, Infrastructure & More

We’d like to thank George Zimmerman of the NBASE-T and Ethernet Alliances, for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to us about his journey from the NASA SETI project and how solving the problem of noisy signals helped lead us to the Ethernet technology we have today.

Opinions expressed here are his own and not those of the IEEE-SA or the Ethernet Alliance.
