HERE'S WHAT WE SEE ON THE HORIZON:
* Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), which will bring faster, more stable connections
in high-density environments. It works in the 2.5 GHz and 5 GHz
bands.
* Wi-Fi 6E, which is an extension of Wi-Fi 6 (using IEEE 802.11ax
technology). It provides four times the amount of bandwidth offered
by Wi-Fi and operates in the newly available 6 GHz band.
* 802.11ah (HaLow), which supports long-range, low-power wireless
sensor networks. It works in the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands.
* 802.11ay, which is a WLAN that supports device connectivity via
fixed point-to-point or point-to-multipoint outdoor backhaul
technology. It works in the 60 GHz band.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOUR CABLE INFRASTRUCTURE
Behind any wireless network is a high-performance wired network:
you'll need cabling and connectivity specifically designed to support
wireless infrastructure.
For example: combining the Category 6A performance you need
with the Belden quality and reliability you expect, our REVConnect
10GXW System offers best-in-class noise immunity with 4 dB of
PSANEXT and 10 dB of PSAACRF headroom. This level of performance
eliminates slow network speeds and maximizes uptime in wireless
environments.
3. SMALL CELLS
Small cells transmit data to and from wireless devices, providing
network coverage and adding targeted capacity indoors or outdoors.
They improve wireless coverage by redistributing signals from cellular
carriers, bringing them inside or dispersing them across a vast area.
4G LTE AdvancedPro and 5G licensed protocols require increasing
numbers of small cells to provide wireless coverage, reduce
bottlenecks and utilize Power over Ethernet (PoE).
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOUR CABLE INFRASTRUCTURE
If you deploy in-building small cells, these applications require
C A N A D I A N A U TO M AT I O N

high-bandwidth wireless coverage and PoE.
As installation of access points and small cells increases to improve
wireless coverage, the amount of pathway cabling required to support
increased network capacity will increase, too.
In addition, small-cell deployments often utilize the millimeter wave
spectrum, relying on fibre for the backhaul portion of the network. Fibre
is preferred for the fronthaul portion of the network as well (the portion
that connects the small cells).
4. DIGITAL ELECTRICITY
Digital electricity technology does exactly what its name implies:
distributes electricity in a digital format, creating packets of energy that
transfer from a transmitter to a receiver. If there's a problem (improper
wiring, someone touching transmission lines, etc.), then the transmitter
stops sending energy packets. This creates a " touch-safe " electrical
transmission, also known as a fault-managed system.
Digital electricity delivers power to applications posing distance
limitations that PoE and remote DC powering can't support. The
technology provides power to wireless systems, such as a distributed
antenna system (DAS), without needing direct power access nearby.
When systems are powered remotely, you can install components in
optimal locations instead of worrying about placement in conjunction
with a power source.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOUR CABLE INFRASTRUCTURE
For maximum performance, you need a solution tailored to the
demands of digital electricity: a cable that safely provides lots of power
over long distances.
Belden's DE cables https://www.belden.com/products/cable/power-cable/digital-electricity-cable numberOfResults=25 are the only application-specific solution designed to support digital electricity.
Designed in conjunction with VoltServer, the creator of Digital Electricity, the cables can transmit up to
2,000W or reach up to 2 km and be installed by power-limited systems integrators.
