Focus on Telecom / Datacom

  • Durable, Disaster-Proof Data Centers

    How did data centers do during the recent spate of disasters? Just fine, thanks to good planning. The cloud is a great repository for critical information, but in the event of a fire, hurricane, earthquake, or other disaster, that information is only as safe as the data center in which it’s stored. This summer, disasters Read More >>

Telecom / Datacom Products


The telecom/datacom market sector includes enterprise network equipment, wireline network equipment, wireless network, subscriber equipment, and cable/multiservice operator equipment. The driving force in this market is the explosion in the volume of Internet traffic over the last 10 years. This growth has been driven by an increasingly connected worldwide population and the dramatic decrease in the cost of PCs and other Internet access devices, such as cell phones and smartphones.Although this equipment utilizes a broad spectrum of connector and cable assemblies types, PCB connectors, I/O connectors, RF, telecom and fiber optic connectors dominate this sector.

Contemplating a Switch to 400 VDC for Data Centers

Direct current saves time, money, energy, space, and the environment. All we need to get there is new standards. Jonas Bachmann, SCHURTER R&D Engineer for Appliance Couplers Converting, transforming, converting, transforming — vast amounts of unused electricity simply disappear in data centers. Switching the power supply to direct current could bypass a large proportion of Read More >>

The Quest to Keep Electronics Cool

When I/O connectors block airflow, a toolbox of solutions is required to keep today’s fast, dense, and hot systems cool. Lithium ion batteries are not the only source of excessive heat in electronic devices. A nasty combination of dense system packaging and increased power consumption tends to concentrate heat inside the box, causing component stress Read More >>

High-Speed Signals Take the High Road

Very early computers were a mass of discrete point-to-point wires. The combination of physics and economics is bringing that interconnect architecture back full circle. Design engineers have been grappling for years with the challenge of propagating ever-increasing signal rates in printed circuit boards. As data rates pushed into RF regions, signal modeling transitioned from simple Read More >>
