Cisco’s main business is sell routers and switches to large companies and telecom operators. But now users are increasingly relying on smartphones and tablet computers to watch video and surf Internet. Cisco CEO John Chambers is strengthening the investment in data network to adapt to the new situation. In addition, as growth slows in hardware revenue, Cisco is continuously through acquisition to get rid of dependence on hardware, and gradually achieve diversification.
JouleX is Cisco’s latest acquisition, which is a software company provides business-oriented energy management. Its JouleX Energy Manager software and services can automatically monitor, analyze and control the power consumption of enterprise networking equipments. JEM features without installing agent, hardware measuring instrument in the network, also do not need to change the network or security settings. This advantage allows companies easily centralizing visualization of energy management at different places of the office environment and data center.
Last month, Cisco agreed to pay $ 310 million to buy UK network Ubiquisys, whose technology can help mobile operators to providing better service for intelligent mobile phone and tablet computer users. Prior Cisco also had made two acquisitions in succession, $ 475 million for Intucell and $ 1.2 billion for Meraki. A little further in March last year, Cisco paid $ 500 million to acquire NDS who offers pay-TV content. These series of initiatives show, Cisco is firmly towards the strategic transformation.

AFL has launched a new series of low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable distribution, using fibre optic cable to the company product portfolio standard of superior design and engineering expertise.
“With strict environmental or safety regulations or workplace ventilation, the AFL LSZH cable provides a solution that supports both NFPA70 standards strictly, and greatly reduces the conditions when exposed to heat or flame, potentially toxic emissions AFL cable enterprise business manager Doug Baker said.
LSZH fibre optic cables design are in line with national and international safety regulations. LSZH cable performance in accordance with UL 1666, UL 1685 OFNR – LS standard and the international electrotechnical commission (IEC) standard of 60332, 60754 and 61034. In addition, the fibre optic network design based on the 900 microns of tightly packed buffer structure, it provides the needed to meet the requirements of network installation performance and ease of use. The optical cable is designed to support directly or indirectly clamping scheme, and the cables management system can be accessed.
LSZH cables management structure at the same time supports including 50 microns OM4 fibre cables of multimode optical fibre and single mode solution, these two kinds of optical fibre is not sensitive structure are applied to flexible design. LSZH fibre optic cables suitable for communications cabinets and equipment room, data centre backbone cabling, LAN between distribution and main buildings, as well as the halogen free safety performance and environment in the process of the termination of optical components in the wiring.
