The datacom industry is fast adapting an “all-for-fiber, fiber-for-all” mantra. Fiber developments and growth are everywhere, from high-speed data centers to bandwidth-hungry enterprises to Google Fiber.
At Fluke Networks, we take test and measurement seriously. Proving that point, we recently announced the world’s first cloud-connected cable certification tool. That’s right, we unveiled LinkWare™ Live, a cloud-based service that enables contractors, cable installers and project managers using the Versiv™ family of certification testers to upload, manage, and analyze certification test results from cabling projects – anytime, anywhere.
For most structured cabling professionals, the days of nostalgically flipping through the pages of a school yearbook have passed. But Fluke Networks has introduced the next best thing – The Versiv Family Yearbook: Class of 2014.
Os engenheiros da rede precisam prestar atenção a algumas tendências emergentes na indústria. In a report published earlier this year, “Data Center Switch Long-Range Forecast Report,’ Crehan Research Inc. predicted that the data center switch market will grow to $16 billion by 2017, and Ethernet, including Fibre Channel-over-Ethernet, will become an ever-increasing portion of the overall market.
Perhaps the last thing a buyer of cable test equipment thinks about when looking for a product is how to prevent testing errors—and that’s a big mistake. While issues such as cost, standards and specifications including bandwidth and test speeds are important, decision makers should not ignore the issues of project errors and the subsequent delays they can cause.
Testar as plantas de cabeamentos avançadas de hoje é algo tão complexo que um único relatório de teste da categoria 5e pode incluir mais de 400 campos de dados. Com trabalhos típicos incluindo centenas e até milhares de links, mesmo se os engenheiros de rede examinarem todos os resultados e determinarem que todos estão aprovados, ainda restam perguntas críticas: Como você pode dizer com facilidade se uma especificação de teste incorreta foi utilizada? Todos os testadores estavam usando o software correto? Você obteve as margens esperadas e elas foram consistentes?
