In-Building Fiber to the Edge: A Case Study

Local area networks and in-building wireless needs are evolving. Fiber-based networks provide a unique value proposition by bringing network access and intelligence closer to end-users.

Join us for a webinar where we’ll show you how Graybar and Corning can bring fiber to the ‘Edge’ with a real-life, on-site deployment. This video is approved to provide one BICSI CEC—available through Aug-15-2019. Register to watch on demand »

Next Generation PoE Standards and Codes

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a hot topic. New power levels are dramatically increasing PoE device types. There are new standards for equipment and cabling, new code developed by NFPA for NEC:registered: and new UL listing for PoE Cables. Do you know what you need to know and what you should do?

During this webinar, we will review the trends and impacts of the new PoE standards. This will include a discussion on the impact of PoE on cabling performance. There will be discussion regarding the impact of NFPA codes on cabling. At the conclusion, we will make recommendations for pulling it all together.

How the Cloud is Redefining Edge Data Center Design

The world is rapidly changing and the always-on, always-available expectation continues to evolve. Leveraging massive amounts of data generated by the Internet of Things into an automated lifestyle is proving to be a challenge. For today’s connected world, reliable data processing and content delivery is essential.

Edge computing that minimizes the physical gap between data and the end user is a vital component of new cloud architecture. However, edge data centers are not configured for the same level of availability as larger hyperscale data centers.

This session will address how data centers can support new demands such as smart-cities and remote business branch offices. Learn how business-critical edge sites should be designed to achieve high availability and why the current paradigm of data center availability is inadequate.
