Get Your Enterprise Ready for 5G

While you might think of 5G wireless as a cool consumer tech concept, don’t lose sight of the fact that it will have a significant impact on enterprise IT. In the race to 5G, there are political pressures for countries to be “first” 5G, and for vendors to dominate market share. As these competitive pressures build, enterprise CIOs are being asked to think about what they need to do to be ready for 5G, what business cases can or will benefit from 5G, and if or when they should deploy 5G. None of the answers to these issues are straightforward, as 5G itself is in a state of disruptive deployment. 

Ethernet Cable Market to Garner $21.36 Bn, Globally, by 2026 at 13.5% CAGR, Says Allied Market Research

High speed and low latency of the cable, high reliability and low-security threats, and features like easy installation and connectivity have boosted the growth of the global ethernet cable market. However, high installation cost and limited physical availability of devices hamper the market. On the contrary, rise in demand for power over Ethernet in industries is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the near future.

Why Choose an Active Fiber or Hybrid Cable?

For applications requiring long distance distribution, an active fiber/copper hybrid cable can be used as an HMDI extension. This offers all of the benefits of active optical cables without the high cost of glass active fiber cables or the constraints associated with traditional copper cables,allowing users to extend HDMI beyond 25 feet.

Modernizing the Data Center Online Summit

Join the conversation during our Modernizing the Data Center online Summit as experts discuss what technologies and trends will shape the #DataCenter in 2020, intelligent network modernization strategies, and more. Spending on enterprise data center infrastructure grew by 13 percent in the last year, according to a report from Synergy Research Group. With a 23 percent growth in cloud-enabled infrastructure, IT leaders must explore avenues outside of traditional, non-cloud infrastructure if they want to future proof their data center. From SD-WAN and Software-Defined Data Centers, join infrastructure experts as they discuss what technologies and trends will shape the Data Center in 2020.

Understanding Propagation and Delay Skew in Cable Testing

Delay happens for all signals across all cable types, and propagation delay is the amount of time it takes for a transmitted signal to be received at the other end of the link or channel. The propagation delay in a twisted-pair copper cabling such as Category 6 or 6A is related to the nominal velocity of propagation (NVP), as well as the length of the cable and the operating frequency. You might remember from our previous blog on reading the top of a LinkWare™ report that NVP is used by your tester to calculate the length of the cable.

Webinar Registration – Zoom

Do you know which use cases 5G is realistically expected to support by 2025? Or how it will be possible for 5G to deliver on its multifaceted promise by then? Attend this webinar and learn: What 5G is (now) and it will be (by 2025), Which 5G use cases are likely to change our world by 2025 (maybe autonomous vehicles, maybe not…), Which near- and long-term 5G network challenges worry operators the most and why, from specific domains (e.g., radio access) to end-to-end network slicing, and What is needed to ensure that 5G fully delivers by 2025, if not earlier, and what can be done starting today.
