TE Connectivity Announces Clark College Upgrades Fiber Infrastructure with TE Connectivity
Jun 29 15
TE Connectivity announced that Clark College in southwestern Washington has upgraded its campus-wide broadband infrastructure with TE fiber solutions. The College moved from 1-Gigabit to 10-Gigabit fiber with the potential for upgrades to faster speeds over time. For years, the campus had relied on multimode fiber for connectivity, but distance and bandwidth limitations made it time to change. TE and contractor Cochran Electric deployed 24-fiber multifiber push-on (MPO trunks with Q3000 panels, 10-Gigabit MPO fiber blades, and RMG series rack-mount fiber enclosures to support the upgrade. New fiber was installed 48 strands each of single-mode and multimode fiber per building to provide redundancy and mitigate any downtime.

TE Connectivity (TEL) has been hired to provide technology for Andretti Technologies' test car and test program. Andretti Technologies is the engineering business of Andretti Autosport. In the partnership, the companies will develop and test new technologies in a racing environment to prove and promote clean energy and sustainability. They will use the Andretti Technologies Formula E test car, which will feature TE's connectivity and sensor products.
TE Connectivity and Zhone Technologies, Inc. Partner to Co-Market Passive Optical LAN Solutions
Jun 16 15
TE Connectivity and Zhone Technologies Inc. announced a partnership to co-market Passive Optical LAN (POL) solutions to customers in a wide variety of sectors including government, healthcare, hospitality, education and finance. Growing demand for POL solutions using Zhone Technologies' FiberLAN and TE Connectivity's Optical LAN Solution (OLS) positions the companies to partner on marketing programs aimed at promoting the adoption of POL across multiple industries, and raising the awareness about the benefits of the technology. The all-fiber networks created by Zhone Technologies' FiberLAN and TE Connectivity's OLS reduce infrastructure costs versus copper cabling and operate within a small footprint, as well as increase energy efficiency and security of the network. Moreover, these networks support the delivery of video, voice and Internet services, streamlining and accelerating deployments and reducing hardware costs for customers. For SouthEast Bank's 32,000 square feet retail branch and office in Knoxville, Tenn., Zhone Technologies and TE Connectivity's collaboration led to a faster, more powerful network while reducing physical space and heat dissipation. The fiber cabling infrastructure weighed only 40 pounds, compared to an estimated 2,400 pounds for an equivalent network using traditional copper LAN. In another collaborative effort, the FiberLAN and OLS solutions were deployed to support a micro-community broadband model for Park Square at Seven Oaks, a 224 unit upscale residential community sprawling 14 acres in Bakersfield, Calif. Under this model, residents pay a flat monthly fee of $25, without the hassles of signing up for service, waiting for an installer or committing to long-term contracts.
Jade Communications Selects TE Connectivity Powered Fiber Cable System for Large Hd Camera Deployment
Jun 2 15
TE Connectivity (TE) announced that Jade Communications has designed in TE's powered fiber cable system and PoE extender to slash deployment costs at a golf course. The 36-camera system at a south Florida golf course, with cameras located up to 10,700 feet from the power source, was initially designed with dedicated fiber and power runs to each camera. By designing the system with TE's powered fiber cable system and PoE extender, however, Jade Communications was able to save $142,000 (14.5%) in network build-out costs. TE's powered fiber cable system provides a complete rack-to-device vision for both powering and communicating with network access devices such as small cells, HD cameras and Wi-Fi access points. The powered fiber cable system eliminates the complexity of device installation and allows devices like Wi-Fi access points or HD cameras to be placed exactly where they are needed for maximum effectiveness by combining power and optical fiber communications into one system. The powered fiber cable system is powered by a centrally located, 48V DC, NEC Class II and SELV compliant power supply. The PoE extender is a small device that incorporates electrical power management, circuit protection electronics, and an optical-to-electrical media converter in an environmentally sealed enclosure. The PoE extender device terminates the powered fiber cable in a weatherproof housing, and provides a single RJ45 jack output for PoE/PoE+ output. Featuring plug-and-play installation, the PoE extender is a simple, unobtrusive way to deploy PoE devices in large buildings or urban or suburban areas.
