FiberPlex WEN-6 Waveguide Extension Nut

FiberPlex WGF series of waveguide filters provide a way of bringing pre-terminated fiber optic cables into a shielded enclosure while maintaining the enclosure’s radio frequency isolation integrity. The diameter and length of the bore are precisely calculated to provide a measured attenuation at a specific cutoff frequency. This works extremely well, but occasionally the wall […]

Happy 50th, Fiber Communications!

FiberPlex Technologies We couldn’t let 2016 slip into history without recognizing a milestone anniversary. Fifty years ago, research engineer Sir Charles Kao published his findings on fiber optic communications in a paper read by his peers. Copper cabling was the transport medium of the day and what Sir Kao proposed was quite remarkable. His 1966 […]

OUTSMARTING SCADA HACKERS

FiberPlex SCADA hacking is on the rise. We just learned of another attack on a water treatment plant in which hacktivists were able to change chemical levels through the SCADA system. Attacks targeting SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems rose 100 percent in 2014 compared to the previous year. These data control systems are […]

Fiber Brings Live Video Production Home

FiberPlex Taking a video production on the road is a complicated process – cameras, operators, sound people, remote producers, portable editing suites and miles of cable. Taking the show overseas further complicates the process, requiring shipments of large containers well in advance of the event, along with piles of paperwork and customs declaration forms. Adding […]

Maximizing Infrastructure – Is There Gold In Your Walls?

FiberPlex Technologies, Kyle Rosenbloom  In retrospect it’s wonderful that so many buildings had the foresight to install fiber optics in their walls. The copper lines originally used are now past their breaking point, having exceeded their limitations. Copper has become woefully inefficient when faced with the current need for lightning-fast data transmission and cyber security. […]

Wavelength Division Multiplexing – It’s Not Rocket Science…

FiberPlex Doug Schwartz 11/19/2014 As with anything that is not familiar to us, it is human nature to think that something mystical or difficult to understand must be involved in the creation of that which is not familiar and already understood. In fact, once something is familiar, or I should say used on a regular […]

A Simple History of Fiber Optic Technology

FiberPlex Doug Schwartz 10/27/14 Let me take you on a journey back in time. Copper cable, of which we are all extremely familiar and comfortable with and which we originally experimented with in the 1750’s, really came on the scene back in the 1820’s with the invention of the electromagnet and the telegraph system. And […]
