The how-to instruction will be part of a data center-themed web seminar.

As part of a data center-themed web seminar that will be held on November 8, Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Joshua Seawell will demonstrate the tools and procedures by which installation technicians can field-terminate MPO-style fiber connectors. Seawell, who is director of Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s lightwave network products division, will deliver the presentation entitled “MPO Field-Installable Connectors – Keys to Successful MPO Field Terminations.”

It is one of three presentations that will be delivered during the seminar that is titled “Cabling and Managing the Evolving Data Center.” The other presentations are:
