There is special care required upfront during the selection process of the physical infrastructure, like the racks and cable management…

Cabling Disasters and What Causes Them

- Cabling disasters, network spaghetti, these are just two terms that describe something that’s all too common within the IT industry. When networking is done right, it can be a beautiful thing; however, when the cabling isn’t managed properly, disaster tends to strike. If you’ve been in the industry for any amount of time, there’s a good chance you have seen what I’m talking about – network racks that become overrun with unmanaged cable, sometimes completely concealing the rack itself. These disa…

Thoughts On 4K, HDMI, Signal Bandwidth and the AV Signal Quality Triangle

- One thing all marketing plans need is a number. Big or small, the size doesn’t matter. Just so long as there’s a number, and ideally a single number, that can be said to correlate somehow with a product’s quality then markets will use it. You know the drill; it’s a number someone can point to and claim “If that number is bigger (or smaller), then the product is better (or worse)”. It doesn’t seem to matter if the correlation is ambiguous, or even outright misleading. Sixty years ago, the audio…

AC Power Adapters Near Extinction

- Current state: It’s late, you’re just getting home from work, and your cell phone is almost out of juice. You find the USB charging cable in your backpack or purse, but you can’t find the little USB to AC adapter that allows you to plug the device into the wall. You begin asking family members if they’ve seen the adapter. You check the junk drawer. You check the outlet that it was plugged into last night. Nothing. You’ll figure it out later. For now you need to help with homework, make dinner, m…
