A few years back, CommScope began an exhaustive study on microwave radio link backhaul antenna performance. CommScope collected sample antennas through the on the open market from every manufacturer known to be providing backhaul point-to-point (dish) antennas at that time. Going into the study, CommScope understood the importance of having a reliable network, to ensure the delivery of a superior customer experience and hoped to find the key elements of high-performance.

Smart Testing for the Smart Grid
The industry is changing... and Greenlee Communications has your network testing solutions.
Proper network testing is critical to ensuring utility operator data networks are free of disruption and errors. This presentation will explain the limitations of RFC-2544 for testing today’s Ethernet networks and demonstrate how ITU-T Y.1564 is now the preferred methodology for testing proper configuration and performance of Ethernet networks.
- Learn about market drivers pushing utilities to deploy all IP networks
- Describe limitations of RFC-2544 and overview of SLA testing with Y.1564
- Explore real world examples of Y.1564’s use in utility networks
Wireless access points (WAPs) are often located in high-traffic areas, where safety (for both the equipment and connection) and wireless coverage are paramount. In additional to safety and ensuring good coverage, other concerns are usually aesthetic and economical. Oberon has recently introduced a solution to address these concerns, the Model 1044 Suspended Ceiling WAP Installation Kit. Once installed, the access point is recessed into the ceiling much like a recessed light fixture, making for an aesthetic installation, and providing ideal, unobstructed wireless coverage at a reasonable price-point.
Installation is fast and easy. A cutout is made in the ceiling tile tracing the shape of the access point. A steel backbox is placed above the ceiling tile, and a white trim is placed around the access point. The access point is attached to a universal mounting T-bar which is pressed into the backbox. The access point recesses into the ceiling tile and the trim creates a professional finished appearance. The access point trim can be easily swapped out for new trim if the access point brand or model is changed in the future.

Improving your termination time is an easy way to see a boost in bottom line. The faster you can complete a termination, the more terminations you can complete. Siemon knows speed equals profitability, which is why they are offering the TurboTool for free, with select purchases, for a limited time.
Government and military facilities require premium physical security, video surveillance and network security, all while minimizing operational costs. Government at all levels is being challenged to manage budgets more stringently, while providing higher quality and more timely service to constituents and leaders. The demand for current tools requires network improvements to support the secure delivery of programs and increase operational efficiency.
Having a larger field of view (FOV) allows a camera's user a better range of coverage and can mean less cameras need to be installed to properly monitor an area. Taking this into consideration, the world’s first varifocal mini vandal dome, the IQEye Alliance-Mini Camera, now offers an enhanced FOV option. The Alliance-Mini provides the highest quality megapixel images with the lowest bandwidth demands in a tiny, versatile and attractive package. Installation is quick and easy with flexible mounting options and PoE design.
