The most important factors that determine the correct operation of modern automation, electronics, industrial computers and other devices are the correct power supply and the appropriate climatic conditions. These are necessary to ensure ongoing operation of priority infrastructure equipment – server room, data communication, power engineering.
This white paper from Server Technology outlines the current state of Data Center Diversity, and offers guidance for cutting through
the fog where it comes to how power and equipment densities vary within a data center and for planning how to handle the varying
densities at the data center rack.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However,
the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase.
At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1
This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how
inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.

HVAC concerns in an industrial facility like a warehouse or manufacturing plant can be complicated. Not only are these spaces usually larger than traditional commercial areas, but they often have equipment or products that need to maintain a specific temperature. MacroAir’s large industrial ceiling fans provide optimal airflow for industrial facilities and are an affordable alternative to HVAC systems.
MacroAir’s big industrial fans deliver a cooling effect for occupants, help control the effects of humidity, and can also help conserve heat in colder months by pushing warm air that is trapped at the ceiling toward the walls and down to the floor at occupant level.
MacroAir’s big ceiling fans provide an efficient airflow solution and a sustainable alternative to relying on HVAC alone to cool large spaces.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.
Many manufacturers are pursuing the immense business benefits available from digitizing and connecting their factories. Major gains in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduced downtime, and manufacturing flexibility can be achieved with a factory that is digitized and connected. By providing visibility to machines and processes, manufacturers can anticipate issues that create unplanned downtime. By putting in place a secure, converged and wireless-ready network, manufacturers can have a platform that enables the agility to quickly start up new machines, cells, and lines, and rapidly deliver new products.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is flooding today’s industrial sector with data. Information is streaming in from many sources — equipment on production lines, sensors at customer facilities, sales data, and much more. Harvesting insights means filtering out the noise to arrive at actionable intelligence.
This report shows how to craft a strategy to gain a competitive edge. It explains how to evaluate IIoT solutions, including what to look for in end-to-end analytics solutions. Finally, it shows how SAS has combined its analytics expertise with Intel’s leadership in IIoT information architecture to create solutions that turn raw data into valuable insights.
