Google Fiber just announced that it will give low-income families in Kansas City, the opportunity to receive symmetrical 25 Mbps broadband services for $15/month. 25 Mbps just happens to meet FCC’s recently raised minimum broadband threshold. Internet service offerings below the 25 Mbps rate
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is known for its simultaneous transmission of power and data using twisted pair copper, but will the search for faster speed rates influence the separation of data and power?
New Powered Fiber Cable System (PFCS) solutions introduce a new breed of PoE extension. The solution utilizes a powered fiber cable that insulates fiber and copper separately and assigns copper with
We’ve compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions about VDSL & VDSL2. If you’re interested in learning more about ADSL and ADSL2+, visit our ADSLs/2+ FAQ here.
1. What is VDSL/VDSL2?
VDSL, or Very-High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber line, allows Internet Service Providers to provide fast connection speeds via legacy copper lines. VDSL and VDSL2 can provide faster broadband performance when compared to ADSL/2+
Last year, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler redefined broadband, raising the qualifying speeds from 4 Mbps DS/ 1 Mbps US to 25 Mbps DS/ 3Mbps US. This new standard toppled the once promising statistic that upheld that “99% percent of Americans had access to broadband speeds”.
Compliant PoE devices and compatible PoE devices do not hold up to the same 802.3af/at standard. Misunderstanding the difference between compliant and compatible devices can lead to interoperable connections.
Powered Devices labeled as “compliant” fulfill IEEE’s strict requirements of supporting both Mode A and Mode B power modes. 802.3af/at compatible
RJ45 Ethernet connections are one of the most common forms of cabling found in local LAN networks. Ethernet is defined by IEEE’s 802.3 standard and can be classified in different categories including Cat5 (now obsolete), CAT5e, CAT6, and CAT6a. The two most common types of Ethernet speeds are known as Fast Ethernet,
Royal Phillips has announced its first large-scale lighting deployment powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) at Clemson University. The University’s Watt Family Innovation Center now boasts state-of-the-art lighting that combines the energy efficiency of LED lighting with the simplicity of PoE cabling.
PoE Lighting is a cutting edge technology that provides a branding statement of innovation
DSLAM Definition: A DSLAM, or Digital-Subscriber-Line-Access-Multiplexer, is a network distribution device that aggregates individual subscriber lines into a high-capacity uplink. These high capacity uplinks, either ATM or Gigabit Ethernet, connect subscribers to their Internet service providers (ISPs). DSLAM units are typically located in telephone exchanges or distribution points. They allow for
