In This Issue: Conviction | Cisco 1000BASE-T Standard SFP Module, Extended Temperature | News to Start Your Day
Happy Monday! We hope you enjoyed your weekend. Enjoy kicking off this week celebrating National String Cheese Day! Are you one of those people who peel away the cheese piece by piece or do you just chomp down and enjoy?
The CK Daily – Conviction
Good morning CK Fam!
Conviction is one of those heavy words. To live and love with conviction will undoubtedly move you to feel a more fulfilled life that steers you from sin and wrongdoing.
In a world ever-changing that seemingly celebrates sin amongst its inhabitants, hold fast to your convictions, and don’t lose hope. Feel fulfilled and help others find that fulfillment.
I say all of this due to personal experience this last week. We invited a friend’s cousin to play basketball with us. Nice young man, a lot of energy, and a full life in front of him. The friend of mine texted me to let me know his cousin’s life has ended due to an overdose.
These tragedies take place every day in America, when it happens close to us, we wish we could’ve done more.
Live with conviction. Love with conviction.
Have a great week,
Product Spotlights & Updates
Sometimes you just have to roll with Copper and when Fiber is not an option the GLC-TE is a great option for your networking needs. These Copper SFPs have a data transfer rate of 1000 Mbps with a max distance of 100 meters. There’s a similar product that Cisco sells that is identical to the GLC-TE, but has one major difference. The GLC-T is nearly identical in every way but has a lower operating temperature and that’s a crucial difference. The GLC-T operates at 0 to 70°C (32 to 158°F) while the GLC-TE operates at -5 to 85°C (23 to 185°F). For those server environments where the temperature gets a little hot or a bit cold, be sure to grab a GLC-TE if you need a copper SFP. Here’s a bit of trivia when it comes to cisco products. Typically they categorize temperature ranges into three distinct categories for this product family. COM, EXT, and IND that mean the following (the GLC-TE is in the EXT category):
- Commercial temperature range (COM): 0 to 70°C (32 to 158°F) – for your standard operating environments that are typically temperature controlled.
- Extended temperature range (EXT): -5°C to 85°C (23 to 185°F) for your above-average heat and a little cooler environments
- Industrial temperature range (IND): -40 to 85°C (-40 to 185°F) – for what I like to call the icebox or Antarctica environments
What’s even a better fact is that the Cisco Original GLC-TE for 25% off this week!
Learning Center Article – What are Console Cables & What are they used for?
Console cables — also known as Cisco cables, rollover cables and management cables — are designed for a specific purpose. They connect Cisco networking devices to terminals or PCs for configuration. Typically, the Cisco end will connect via RJ45, and the terminal end will conclude in a serial connection.
What matters most about console cables is the specific nature of the connection. This is not an Ethernet or networking connection. It is a terminal connection, and its purpose is to enable the connected computer to configure the networking device. This is true for older Cisco equipment and brand-new devices. Configuration is performed through the serial connection.
