Free Webinar! Optical Fiber and Cabling Standards for Tomorrow's Data Centers - June 6th

Fiber optic technology continues to evolve in order to support the ever-increasing demands for speed and bandwidth in data center environments. As enterprise transmission speeds increase to 40 and 100 Gb/s, this webinar will review the industry standards that are evolving to ensure that fiber remains the most cost-effective and energy-efficient form of connectivity.

AFL adds One-Click MPO connector cleaner

AFL has expanded its One-Click Cleaner product line with the One-Click Cleaner MPO. The new product, part of AFL’s Noyes cleaning products, is aimed at data center technicians.

The One-Click Cleaner MPO is a push-type cleaner designed to simplify ferrule end-face cleaning on both exposed MPO connectors and MPO connectors in adapters. As with the other cleaners in the product family, the One-Click Cleaner MPO uses AFL’s push-to-clean design, in which a mechanical push action advances the optical-grade cleaning tape, while cleaning the end-face of the fiber-optic connector.


TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium's insight:

“Proper cleaning of fiber optic connectors prevents the most common causes of performance degradation, network and component failure, and network down time.The new One-Click Cleaner MPO makes the cleaning of MPO connectors easier than ever."

How fiber can help make your network "greener" - Cabling Install

Lower energy consumption, reduced waste and sustainable architectures are all characteristics that make fiber infrastructure an environmentally advantageous choice.

 

Increasingly information technology (IT) departments are being asked to make their networks "greener" as part of the overall push toward sustainability in business. Several recent studies have focused on the impact that the buildings sector has on United States energy consumption. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA; www.eia.gov), in 2010 roughly 41 percent of total U.S. energy consumption was used in buildings--surprisingly this sector uses 44 percent more energy than the transportation sector and 36 percent more than the industrial sector. Taking a global perspective, the buildings sector accounts for 7 percent of global energy consumption.

TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium's insight:

Have you read the latest article from the Fiber Optics Technology Consortium? Members Alfred Flores (Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company) and Loni Le Van-Etter (3M) discuss some of the "green" benefits of deploying optical fiber.
