Smart Cities: What’s Next?

A new market report even predicts that the global smart cities market will reach $237.6 billion by 2025, which is an 18.9% growth from 2019 to 2025. The benefits are clear: more efficient homes and buildings and improved mobility in cities, among others. The concept is good, although does present a few challenges. Looking beyond the cost, smart city implementation also requires a systemic approach.

What is CWDM? Introduction to Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) Technology

CWDM stands for Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing. As the name states, it is a form of multiplexed fiber optics, so CWDM networks can send simultaneous, two-way communication. The term “coarse” refers to the wavelength spacing between channels. CWDM utilizes laser signals that differ in increments of 20 nm. A total of 18 different channels are available — with a wavelength range from 1610 nm to 1270 nm — and 8 can be utilized in a single system. Since each channel is capable of data rates of 3.125 Gbps, the aggregate ability is 10 Gbps for any CWDM cable.

What does a 5G network mean for my business?

We all know 5G is coming and in some places, it is already here, but what does this mean for business networks and how do we adapt to 5G networking? Connectivity is changing fast. 5G isn’t just on the way. It’s effectively here. It will be up to leading-edge companies and early adopters to take the technology from testing to widespread use, but the days of wonder how far away it is are gone. Any business with any level of connectivity demand is going to have to face this next upgrade path. It can be folded into your IoT or other data-intense projects, or you can simply futureproof. Regardless of the motivation, it’s vital to start planning today.

Industrial Ethernet Market Driven by Growing Demand for Data Centers

The global industrial Ethernet market is expected to exhibit 12.2% CAGR over the forecast span from 2017 to 2023, rising to a valuation of USD 40.6 billion, according to the latest research report from Market Research Future (MRFR). Factors behind the reported growth include the growing adoption of automation solutions in the industrial sector and a growing reliance on data centers.
 

Webinar: Connectivity for the Edge Computing Era

Edge computing is a new evolution of the processing and storage distribution trend that brings high-bandwidth and low latency access to applications closer to users and devices than ever before. As edge computing redefines the future of data centers, it must also redefine the future of network connectivity. This webinar will address which use cases will drive edge computing in the near-term, identify the primary connectivity requirements, including data rates and latency, identify the role for software automation, predict to what extent edge computing will drive 400 Gbit/s, and more.

Taking centre stage

The data centre has created demand for an infrastructure that provides greater bandwidth and higher data rates, but how has this impacted the market for optical components? Many big cloud operators have chosen to use single mode as the dominant fibre type in the data centre, so that’s creating a lot of pressure on the transceiver manufacturers
