Among the more interesting products resulting from the Internet of Things (IoT) is a new waveguide product recently introduced by FiberPlex Technologies.
With projection mapping becoming a big deal in the AV staging and lighting business, small blue boxes are starting to show up at auditoriums, during corporate events, and at other performance venues.
FiberPlex’s new WDP, shown on each end of the green arrow connecting two campuses, multiplexes additional channels onto an already existing fiber infrastructure, saving the cost of adding new optical cabling for analog optical applications.
The AT&T Stadium in Arlington, previously known as the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, is a Texas-sized stadium with close to five million feet of cabling strung up, down and across one end to the other, most of it single-mode fiber optics.
FiberPlex Technologies CEO Buddy Oliver and partner/CFO Cyndi Peters were finalists in the 2016 Baltimore SmartCEO Circle of Excellence Awards program recognizing the region’s most accomplished business leaders.
Most attendees will leave a conference with a handful of new contacts, some swag, a few empty promises and the latest flu or cold that’s going around.
A lucky few will also take home a solution to a pressing problem, as massAV Director of Operations Aaron Raymond did at one InfoComm after he approached the FiberPlex stand to discuss options for easily getting 3G video signals and network control from a ground control center to multiple, redundant projectors mounted on trusses.
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.
