Ethernet Continues to Thrive in All-Remote Model

The advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) provides businesses with a means to make these important networks part of a cohesive Ethernet-based network, bringing powerful new benefits to the adopters. SPE provides the last link in a chain of communications from the cloud to the network edge, all in a single protocol network. That in itself drives enormous value because now ALL information is available readily, easily transported and stored, unlocking huge data sets to power analytics. The transparency and availability of this information drives better and faster decisions for businesses. leading to higher levels of service for their customers.

SPE technology is designed to connect multiple devices and/or machines to a network and eliminate the need for “translation,” which previously would occur within the gateways. SPE enables full, real-time communication from the sensor to the cloud in a native language without losing information. The technology not only simplifies machine connectivity and data transmission but, in a broader view, facilitates an open ecosystem, with real-time and high-speed communication in a much more cost-effective way.

Ethernet Alliance hosting virtual booth at BICSI Fall Conference

The Ethernet Alliance announced it will be hosting a virtual booth at the online BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2020. The global consortium dedicated to the advancement of Ethernet technologies seeks to connect with the BICSI professional association’s information and communications technology (ICT) experts focused on building infrastructure, and engage them in its activities in areas such as operational technology (OT) networks and Power over Ethernet (PoE).

China’s fast 5G rollout is widening its digital divide

China might be crushing it in 5G, but the rapid rollout is also widening its digital divide. According to the latest MIIT figures, Chinese operators have deployed 480,000 5G base stations – that’s at least twice as much as the rest of the world combined.
But these base stations serve a tiny proportion of potential users. Shenzhen has 45,000, Beijing 44,000 and Shanghai 56,000. In other words, 30% of China’s base station population serves 4% of its human population.

Webinar: Single Pair Ethernet Standards Update, Use Cases and Applications

Single Pair Ethernet is poised to enable a new class of low power devices that will facilitate networking and powering the billions of endpoint sensors forecasted by the year 2022. The SPE standards provide endpoint sensors with a unifying communication protocol and a common networking infrastructure extending the cost-effectiveness and plug-and-play simplicity of Ethernet. Endpoint sensor technology and use cases are evolving rapidly in industrial/process, building automation, data centers as well as to support “Intelligent Building” technologies; IoT infrastructure. TIA’s TR-42 committee is developing single pair telecommunication standards for single pair infrastructure topologies, cabling, and field testing.
