PANDUIT PRESENTS OPTICAL CONNECTIVITY PAPERS AT IWCS

Panduit participated at the 67th International Cable & Connectivity Symposium (IWCS) at the Rhode Island Convention Center, Providence, October 14-17, 2018. During the technical conference, Panduit contributed two presentations that summarized recent advancements made in the field of data center communications.

Asher Novick presents at Advances in Optical Connectivity session

At the technical conference, Asher Novick, optical research engineer, on behalf of our Fiber Optics Research Group, presented two papers at the Advances in Optical Connectivity session and the Multimode Fiber session. Novick‘s first presentation, titled “Performance Improvement of Single Mode Signal Transmission in Multimode Fiber using Ultra Low Loss Connector,” described a collaborative work with Cailabs (http://www.cailabs.com/) to enable single mode transmission over multimode fiber. Our research shows that utilizing novel optical phase masks technology and Panduit’s Ultra Low Loss connector can enable transmission of single mode lasers over links longer than 300 meters with multiple connectors at data rates of 100 Gbps. This investigation enables the use of installed multimode infrastructure with single mode transceivers. This is important to cope with needs of higher data rates in data centers without replacing fiber infrastructure.

His second presentation, titled “Correlation OTDR for Accurate Measurements of Optical Length of Fiber Optic Cables under Diverse Environmental Temperatures,” presents a novel technique to characterize optical length of cables, which is critical to equalize latency in emerging Financial Technology applications such as algorithmic trading. This paper has already been invited to be presented in the 2018 / 2019 IWCS Webinar Series program.

“Enabled by our world-class fiber optics laboratory, these contributions summarize our most recent research on the current factors limiting the reaches of multimode fiber communication systems,” said Panduit’s Chief Technology Officer Brett Lane. “They demonstrate our longstanding commitment to connecting original research to meeting our customers most demanding challenges of tomorrow.”

Panduit Acquires SynapSense – A Leader in Wireless Monitoring and Cooling Optimization

DCIM and cooling solutions help Data Centers save up to 50% of cooling energy costs while providing comprehensive capacity management, that being said, Panduit has recently acquired SynapSense Corporation located in Folsom, CA specializing in thermal risk management and cooling energy savings for large enterprise, colocation, and cloud computing service providers. The SynapSense data center solution consists of a unique and highly-reliable secure wireless mesh networking technology, airflow optimization services, and manual or automated cooling control.

“The SynapSense team has a proven track record of success, helping data center managers reduce energy costs, unlock stranded capacity, and sustain savings over time. This has resulted in strong, trusted partner relationships with leaders in the banking, ISP / hosting, retail, corporate and government sectors,” said Tom Donovan, President & COO, Panduit Corp. “SynapSense is a service-oriented technology company that will bring tremendous value to our customers.”
