TERA: Siemon's Standards-Based Solution for Single-Pair Ethernet (SPE)

by Katy Plant on October 14, 2021

Single-Pair Ethernet (SPE) TERA diagram

The Internet of Things: a vast, cloud-based environment, comprised of more than 75 billion moving parts. While some corners of the internet virtually entertain, others physically control, react and assign. Siemon, for instance, predicts that in the next four years, a majority of industrial IoT (IIoT) devices that are connected to networks will be low-speed operational technology (OT) devices.

What does that mean for the infrastructure of IoT? Low-speed operational technology devices include meters, sensors, actuators and remote controllers, intended for the support of building control applications such as HVAC, security/access and/or lighting.

Single-Pair Ethernet (SPE) TERA

These devices, while being low-speed, are still required to meet industry standards in a reliable environment.

Siemon understands this, which is why they've chosen to highlight their fully-shielded TERA cabling solution for Single-Pair Ethernet. TERA SPE has connectors that feature "an isolated quadrant contact design," with long-supported, standards-based cable sharing.

This cable has been used for a long time and has been recognized by industry standards since 1999, making it a great solution for low-speed connected devices. Watch a full demonstration video below to learn about the various applications of Siemon’s TERA SPE solution: 




The applications of this solution are critical yet practical. Siemon’s standards-based TERA solution is intended to support 10BASE-T1L for building control, industrial and other OT network connections. Additionally, it provides a common networking platform for all 1-, 2- and 4-pair IoT and IIoT Ethernet devices in the enterprise space. Maintaining the IoT ecosystem has never been so simple.
