The global fiber optics market size is expected to reach USD 14.93 billion by 2030, and exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% from 2023 to 2030, according to Grand View Research Inc. The growth is attributed to the rising government funding in developing secure infrastructures.
Ransomware attackers are setting the agenda in cybersecurity
Following news that Royal Mail has been hit by a ransomware attack, David Bicknell, principal analyst on the Thematic Intelligence team at GlobalData, offers his view on how companies can improve their cybersecurity measures.
“This attack is a sharp reminder that no company is immune from attack,” he said. “The silver lining is that an attack like this should jolt every chief executive into scrutinizing their cyber-readiness plans.
Top four IoT trends in 2023
Futurist Bernard Marr shares his four big trends that will influence how we consume-use IoT in 2023.
Molex will offer Single Pair Ethernet Technology as new offering in its future product portfolio
Molex will preview Single Pair Ethernet Technology offering at the Smart Production Solutions 2022 Showcase in Germany on November 8-10…
LEMO launches single pair ethernet 1000BASE–T1
LEMO’s new single pair ethernet 1000Base-T1 is designed to operate over a single twisted-pair copper cable supporting an effective data rate of 1 Gb/sec in both directions simultaneously.
From Glass Fiber to Coherent Transmission and Pluggable Optics: The Evolution and Future of Optical Networks
During the last decade, a new technology called coherent transmission made enormous scaling in optical network transmission possible. Combining the technology of digital signal processors (DSPs) with the application of phase modulation techniques (also common in mobile networks) to optical signals, coherent transmission technology enabled a further 100-fold increase in wavelength speed over what was possible with OOK technology since it was first introduced a decade ago.
New laser lays groundwork for next generation ethernet technology
Scientists from Japan have developed a new type of distributed feedback (DFB) laser and showed that it can be used to transmit data at speeds of 200 Gb/s over a record distance of 10 kilometers. This research could help advance network technology that would allow internet data centers to handle unprecedented…
The optical fiber that keeps data safe even after being twisted or bent
Physicists at the University of Bath in the UK have developed a new kind of fiber designed to enhance the robustness of networks. This robustness could prove to be especially important in the coming age of quantum networks. The team has fabricated optical fibers that can protect light using the mathematics of topology. Best of all, these modified fibers are easily scalable, meaning the structure of each fiber can be preserved over thousands of kilometers.
What’s the Deal with Industry 4.0 (and How Do We Deal with It)?
As industrial revolutions go, Industry 4.0 is decidedly different. Whereas the three preceding industry disruptions focused on making the production process faster and more efficient, the fourth Industrial Revolution is about connecting people, information and processes. As such, it has the potential to radically alter not just the business of manufacturing, but how enterprises of all kinds operate.
Why FiberLert is a Game Changer in Fiber Optics
FiberLert is essentially a voltage detector-like tool from the electrical world that has been reinvented to work in the fiber world, a fiber optic tester that is hypersensitive to the presence of a live optical signal without physical contact. It is not only useful as a troubleshooting and polarity tool, but as a safety tool to verify disconnection prior to inspection with a direct-view inspection scope. It is easy to use with minimal training and is useful in so many ways.
