Meeting Future Developments of Higher Power 4P-PoE

Posted by Julie Clark

Sep 20, 2016 10:46:06 AM

Power over Ethernet technology (PoE) has been quietly gaining traction in the market ever since its launch in 2003, especially in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony & IP Surveillance camera. Today’s PoE landscape has effectively split into two broad categories: standards compliant 24.5 W 802.3at and nonstandard applications with higher power delivery capabilities such as Cisco’s UPoE 60 W and HDBaseT’s 100 W. These non-standard applications create a significant paradigm shift in what was thought to be possible with PoE. Power delivery through 1000 mA per pair and beyond is looming on the horizon and steps will be necessary to ensure continued compatibility with this rapidly changing environment.

Cool Off your Data Center with AisleLok® Containment

Posted by Julie Clark

Aug 25, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Airflow management in the data center is critical for optimizing data center cooling, increasing IT loads, reducing IT equipment temperatures and overall operational excellence. Containing the cold conditioned air, delivering it directly to the IT loads and preventing mixing of hot exhaust air with cold inlet air are basic principles of airflow management. Implementing AisleLok® Modular Containment in a data center provides significant airflow management improvement, reduces equipment inlet temperatures, increases the efficiency of the cooling system while freeing up stranded capacity, and reduces energy costs. And best of all, AisleLok® does this in a flexible manner that can grow and adapt with the evolution of the data center.

AFL Launches FlexScan PON OTDRs

Posted by Julie Clark

Aug 24, 2016 2:00:17 PM

AFL has expanded its FlexScan family of pocket-sized OTDRs adding two PON OTDR models. The FS200-304 PON OTDR offers 1310, 1550 and 1650 nm OTDR testing to verify and troubleshoot both in-service and out-of-service FTTH PONs. The FS200-300 FlexScan supports 1310 and 1550 nm out-of-service testing for both PON and point-to-point networks.

All FlexScan OTDRs include AFL’s SmartAuto™ multi-pulse acquisition, enabling users to detect closely spaced events before a PON splitter while still testing effectively through the splitter. FlexScan OTDRs also display test results in both AFL’s icon-based LinkMap® view and OTDR trace view, allowing users to quickly and easily locate faults and identify necessary corrective action. With up to 37 dB dynamic range, both models verify PONs with split ratios up to 1:64.

FlexScan PON OTDRs include 4.3-inch indoor/outdoor touchscreen display, Bluetooth/WiFi wireless interfaces and an integrated Visual Fault Locator (VFL). The integrated Optical Light Source (OLS) and Optical Power Meter are optional.

FlexScan OTDRs are available in several pre-configured kits combining a user-selected FlexScan with additional fiber verification and troubleshooting tools:

FlexScan Basic Kits: combine FlexScan with TRM® 2.0 Basic Test Results Manager reporting software, USB cable and a soft carry case.

FlexScan Plus Kits: adds a fiber ring (launch cable) and One-Click® cleaner plus upgrades TRM to TRM 2.0 Advanced.

FlexScan PRO Kits: includes a fiber ring, TRM 2.0 Advanced, One-Click cleaner and adds a FOCIS Flex connector inspection probe with user-selected inspection adapter tips. The carry case easily accommodates additional adapter tips.

FlexScan Complete BI/BIPM Kits: includes a fiber ring, TRM 2.0 Advanced, FOCIS Flex with adapter tips and adds a user-selected Optical Fiber Identifier for bend-insensitive fiber (OFI-BI or OFI-BIPM). The OFI-BIPM includes an integrated power meter.

The FlexScan PON OTDRs join previously announced FS200-50 (1550 nm only troubleshooting) and FS200-100 (1310/1550 nm point-to-point verification and troubleshooting) to provide the industry’s smallest, easiest-to-use handheld OTDRs for network installation verification and troubleshooting.
