Bringing you information on industry trends, new products, how-to, best practices, and more.
The Data world advances at a staggering rate, if you are not up to date on the latest technology your data center build will lag behind the curve. OM5 Multimode fiber used for wideband transmission is one of the front runners for the latest and greatest in data center transmission.
Fiber optics is divided into two general classifications; Singlemode and Multimode Fiber. For short distance applications such as patch cords in data centers, Multimode Fiber can offer significant savings over Singlemode. Learn more about the advantages, suggested uses and general information about Multimode Fiber.
Fiber Optics can be a complex topic of discussion. It is hard to believe that something like a movie can be transmitted to us over a beam of light. In this blog, we aim to explain the wavelengths that are utilized to make that work in a Fiber Optic system.
Due to the fragility of the Fiber Optic Core, and the sensitivity of light transmitting through the core to even the slightest imperfections, the jacket and protection around the core is very important factor to consider. You will want to base your jacket material on the connectors and environment of the application.
Fiber Optics can be classified by Singlemode and Multimode Fiber. Each has different pros and cons, however due to the bandwidth and distance capabilities it is safe to say that Singlemode fiber is the best option for "future-proofing". Im sure that you have heard of Singlemode Fiber before if you are reading this article, but the question is How much do you know?
MTP/MPO fiber connectors are the most unique connector option. They often couple 12 or 24 fibers together. This set up is generally used for 40G to 100G short distance, parallel connections. Learn more about MTP and MPO fiber ferrules, and when you should considering using them in your next installation.
Fiber Optic Technology has revolutionized how data is transmitted. In this article, we aim to break down the different types of wavelength division multiplexing and to explain how it works. Whether you are focused on procurement or installation of the fiber, we hope that this article will educate you on how Multiplexing works in Fiber Optic Transmission.
Fiber optics is currently the most effective way of transmitting data, although there are some factors in play that can limit the quality of the signal. In this blog we will discuss these factors, and the steps engineers are taking to limit their effects.
There are many advancements in fiber optic connectors designed to increase performance by decreasing attenuation, one of which being the connection surface of the ferrule; the polish. The industry has quickly advanced in polish styles, with some styles becoming outdated and others still relevant in certain applications.
TAA stands for Trade Agreements Act, and is an act of congress passed in 1979 that requires all items sourced for GSA Schedule Contracts to be manufactured or "substantially transformed" in the United States or a TAA designated country.
Unlike Construction installations, where licensed electricians are tasked with providing power to various locations, utilizing portable power cords can task the consumer with choosing the correct cordage. This can be a confusing task for those not familiar with the industry, which is why we at World Cord Set's welcome the opportunity to educate our customers.
Cabling in the data center has become incredibly complex as the need for higher density installations has grown.
As technology progresses, the need for faster speeds and more compute capacity is expanding at an exponential rate. As the demand increases, the technology to support that demand is also improving and changing rapidly. Fiber Optics has been a fast-changing industry, and, with all of the change, it can be difficult to stay up on the trends. In this article, we'll explore the different connectors and which ones to use when.
It seems like nowadays there is a new type of cable out there every day, with all of the different varities our there, how do you know which one to choose? In this article we'll go over the differences in each cable to help you find the right one for you.
There are hundreds of companies out there that offer data center installation services, however, most of these companies come with a hefty price tag. However, using simple techniques and reducing steps in your supply chain, you can lower the cost of each installation, decrease installation time, and start creating value faster. Read on below to see how World Cord Sets, Inc can help you.
Learn about what a GFCI is and why it can help save you, or someone else's life.
Cabling in data centers is a critical part of your overall infrastructure, without cables to connect each piece of equipment, your data center wouldn't be able to perform at all. However, hav
When purchasing network cables for a new business installation, data center expansion, or connecting end users, it's important that you choose the correct network cable. The choice between Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6a can be difficult to make without knowing the differences between them.
