Why are smart buildings important? —

A smart building is a living asset that is utilised by building and facility managers to improve operations. It is connected, using technology to automate processes and control building services including lighting, heating, air conditioning, security, etc. This is achieved through a network of sensors, wired and wireless technology and microchips to collect and aggregate data into a user interface which takes the guess work out of building control and maintenance.

Keeping up with the evolving data center: part 1 – emerging technologies and related challenges – DCD

Traffic between data centers (DCI traffic) is growing faster than the other categories of traffic. This rapid growth is fueled by the increase in content distribution networks, the proliferation of cloud services and the need to move data between clouds and to the edge. There’s an ever-growing volume of data that must be replicated across different data centers which puts pressure on DCI networks to be flexible, resilient and adapt quickly to changing bandwidth demands.

Fiber is the Now: Keeping up with Optical Fiber

As internet traffic, connected devices and cloud-based services proliferate, there is a corresponding increase in the deployment of optical fiber. This article will highlight the key market segments and technology enablers driving demand and then discuss the ways that optical fiber technology is being deployed to meet the demands for higher bandwidth, low latency networks.

Structured cabling in the data center can help enterprise business thrive coming out of the pandemic

Hyperscale and large cloud data centers tend to be early adopters that shape the industry, with their practices ultimately becoming the standard for data center design and deployment. Current connectivity trends within these spaces are supporting the need to quickly and cost-effectively ramp up capacity in response to emerging technologies and the demand for high-speed, low-latency performance in the evolving digital economy and COVID-19 world.
