How the COVID-19 Pandemic Highlights the Importance of Latency in Internet Access

"This year, communication over the internet has become more mission-critical to daily life...it will be very difficult for the internet, as it’s currently built, to adjust to these changes. But fortunately, the new 5G and Wi-Fi 6 wireless standards have arrived just in time." #fiberinternet #wifi6 #fibernetwork

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Highlights the Importance of Latency in Internet Access The pandemic moved school and work to the home, with no consideration on how the increased connections would impact internet access. This article discusses the importance of latency as society moves from a consumption-based to a connection-based model.

The Advantages of Passive Optical Networks 08/10/2021

The Advantages of Passive Optical Networks

Passive optical networks are based on a coupler or splitter component that splits the input signal from fiber on one side and outputs the signal to multiple fibers on the other end. Best used for connecting #internet users to a central unit, passive optical networks are cost-efficient, require fewer #fiberopticcables overall, and are easy to install and organize. #cablesolutions #fiberoptics #networkdesign

http://ow.ly/MpsZ50FOiyb

The Advantages of Passive Optical Networks Around the world, hundreds of millions of homes and businesses are connected to the internet on optical fiber, and almost every one with a network architecture called passive optical network (PON). There are two main standards for PONs: GPON (gigabit PON) and EPON (ethernet PON). Both have options f...

Any disruption in a #fiberopticcable performance could cause the entire system to collapse.

Working Prim and Proper: Testing and measuring fiber optic power and loss budgets 07/21/2021

Working Prim and Proper: Testing and measuring fiber optic power and loss budgets

"Comparing loss budgets to test results requires understanding the uncertainty of both. Loss budgets are simply estimates of loss and they depend on the estimates you use for component loss. Likewise, test results have an uncertainty of several tenths of a decibel or more, depending on the length of the link being tested and the test method." #fiberoptics #networktesting #cablemanagement

http://ow.ly/bkT650FAFuO

Working Prim and Proper: Testing and measuring fiber optic power and loss budgets When you design and build a fiber optic network, the goal is to have it work properly with the communications networks you need. Communications networks generally specify only two parameters for the cable plant: the type of fiber (single-mode or multimode, and maybe a special grade of fiber) and the...

5G Increases the Need for Fiber Endpoints | ISEMAG

"The ultimate challenge facing network operators is how to scale up from millions of endpoints to the billions of endpoints that 5G services enables... Some estimates have small cell antenna counts as high as 60 per square mile with each ideally being fed by fiber. To accomplish this, existing networks need to be expanded and many new networks need to be deployed." #fiberoptics #5g #networkinfrastructure #fibercable

How to Calculate Fiber Optic Power and Loss Budgets 06/23/2021

How to Calculate Fiber Optic Power and Loss Budgets
