Training future surgeons using distance-learning technology is an important part of today’s hospital operation that comes with high bandwidth requirements, long-distance transmission obstacles and RF and EMI challenges. Thanks to a new visual training system designed by Midtown Video utilizing FiberPlex fiber optics technology, one regional hospital has been able to overcome these challenges so future surgeons can view live medical procedures without having to step into the operating room.
Network security has been battened down on the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier (CVN 68), thanks in part to new fiber optic communications equipment by FiberPlex Technologies.
The U.S. Navy’s oldest and most prominent aircraft carrier installed FiberPlex SATCOM serial data transmission equipment as part of its new Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES) system, which went into service last month. Using TEMPEST tested and approved FiberPlex EIA-530 transceivers into optical cable, the carrier’s communications link is now isolated from radiated data and noise occurring inside of the ship. The use of fiber and FiberPlex’s fiber optic technology will help prevent the possibility of classified or secure information from being transmitted off of the ship.
Security is all over the map. It affects everything and everyone, but none more so than Intermountain Marketing Inc. (IMM), a security systems design consultant and manufacturers’ rep that recently added FiberPlex optical products to its line of cyber-physical security solutions.
What do you get when you cross Ethernet with fiber optic distribution? FiberPlex’s new TIS-8632 10/100/1000 Ethernet-to-fiber switch.
At Sunday’s 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards® FiberPlex’s WDM-16 fiber optic multiplexers and FOI-6010 workboxes, two newcomers to Music’s Biggest Night®, were instrumental in getting music from the stage out to the final mobile production truck for broadcast.
“When Mike Abbott and I first spoke about what methods we were using for MADI to MADI on single-mode fiber is when we decided FiberPlex was an option for the GRAMMYs,” said Joel Singer with Music Mix Mobile (M3), which was responsible for mixing the live music from the stage inside the Los Angeles Staples Center to the broadcast truck outside.
Great athletes, phenomenal coaches, and a few strands of fiber optics are keeping the University of Kentucky in the game.
As one of 14 elite colleges participating in the newly formed Southeastern Conference (SEC) Network, the university recently underwent a sports facility upgrade that included FiberPlex fiber optic communications in order to originate more content for the ESPN network.
With new acquisitions no longer on the books and fiber optic communications in high demand for securing government networks, prime U.S. government contractor Systems Plus recently added our fiber optics products to bolster existing fiber infrastructure for its government and corporate clients.
We had some big problems to solve at InfoComm 2014. Here are a few of the more notable ones, and how our new problem solvers, the TD series optical fiber converters, came to the rescue.
Problem: My Dante system can only go so far given my existing network. How can I extend it?
Solution: The answer is optical fiber, by way of our TD-6010 converter. Simply plug your Dante system into a gigabit Ethernet SFP module on one port and an optical cable into the optic SFP on the other port, and it's done. Dante extended, for miles.
Security. Big data. Austerity. Fulfilling all three requirements for a large project can be like playing the business equivalent of Whack-a-Mole. If you manage to whack one mole, another one pops up. So while fiber optics communications clearly has the capacity for big data (100s of times that of copper cabling on the high end) and it’s absurdly secure – nothing gets into or leaks out of optical fiber – the question of cost keeps popping up.
You’ll be glad to know you can finally put away that mallet.
