Large cloud data centres are often on the cutting edge when it comes to adopting the latest network switches and servers. Yet with so many different transceiver options now available, it is important for data centre managers to choose a cabling system that can adapt to handle the rapidly changing landscape. The best plans will address transceiver upgrades as part of the structured cabling strategy, and vice versa. This live webinar will answer the most common questions about fibre cabling systems asked by data centre engineers and managers: · What are the pros and cons of different strand counts in fibre systems: 2, 8, 12, 24?· Should I choose single-mode or OM5?· Which systems are best for an easy migration to 10/40/100/400 Gb/s? Attendees will also get an overview of the quickly-evolving transceiver marketplace, as well as ways to improve efficiency and cabling density.

Category 8 cabling systems and 25/40GBASE-T solutions have arrived. It's impressive that the same twisted-pair cabling and RJ-45 interface that delivered 10 Mb/s 15 years ago still play an important role in next generation networks. But where will Cat 8 be deployed? How will it be tested? Even if Cat 8 is not part of your immediate strategy, it is important to anticipate future tech refreshes in your current network infrastructure design.
This webinar will cover three key areas:
Overview: Learn the purposes for Cat 8 and 25/40GBASE-T and the new standards that define it.
Practical applications: See how Cat 8 will be used in common data centre topologies.
Comparing alternatives: Get a comparison of direct attach copper (DAC) and fibre to Cat 8.
Watch this webinar and come away with a solid understanding of Category 8 and its benefits.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the benefits of this new bespoke service, as well as a live demonstration of the new Make-to-Order product configurator and how to use this. This unique web-based configurator will enable you to customise products online and issue to your sales representative for an efficient quotation process.
Construction Products Regulation (CPR) is a popular topic of conversation, but what does it mean and how will it affect you?
CPR applies higher product safety standards to save lives and protect buildings in a fire. Brand-Rex, a Leviton company, has invested several years into getting ready for CPR. We worked closely with standards committees to prepare for this important change, and can help you to better understand these regulations.
In this upcoming webinar you will discover:
• Adoption of CPR by region
• Changes in copper and fibre cabling
• Support materials and guidance to help navigate CPR
As data centres and businesses face increasing bandwidth demand, it's paramount to have a migration plan to handle future network growth. Join Brand-Rex, a Leviton Company, for a closer look at the latest copper cabling systems, IT infrastructure trends, and emerging standards shaping the networks of the future.
Gain insight into:
• Migration strategies to 25G and 40G data centre networks with Cat 8
• Cabling recommendations for the latest PoE-enabled devices
• Network designs for 802.11ac enterprise wireless access points
• High performance, flexible copper cabling systems for all types of applications
This presentation will provide you with an overview on the new regulations, how the changes will affect both you and your customers, as well as information relating to part number changes and legal documentation.
