The characteristics that define an edge data center also inform many requirements for the infrastructure within the facility. High-speed networking, a compact footprint, little or no on-site staff, and high reliability are among the attributes of an edge data center that place exacting demands on data center systems. This webinar focuses on edge data centers and the cabling, power and infrastructure components needed.
RF Code’s new White Paper, Standing at the Edge? Look Before You Leap,” defines the edge – what it is, where it is, and its benefits, and reveals the obstacles and hazards IT professionals need to address to ensure their edge deployments deliver the rewards their businesses demand. The paper explores critical information for those developing an edge data center deployment strategy. According to Gartner, within the next four years 75% of data generated by enterprises will be processed at the edge (up from just 10% today).
The problem surrounding all the enthusiasm regarding “the edge” is that there are a whole lot of companies out there who have immediate needs for computing and storage functionality at multiple locations right now.
Opto 22 has released a new white paper, entitled Meet the Future: Edge Programmable Industrial Controllers, which discusses how controls engineers can meet today’s demands for obtaining, using and sharing data.The white paper focuses on three main communication challenges: complexity, security, and expense
The Cloud, The Edge and Municipal Broadband are intertwined to create a platform to enable vibrant communities of the future. The Cloud has grown from a remote disk drive to the mainstream storage, compute and application platform driving the world’s economy. All aspects of personal and corporate life are being cloudified or are going cloud native. The Edge of the cloud is expanding out from the biggest cities to cities and towns closer and closer to the end user. The edge is showing up at the base of cell tower and may soon be hyper-localized at your neighborhood fiber hut.
Winners of the Leading Lights award will be announced tonight. Check out the 11 shortlisted entries in this year’s category for Most Innovative Telecoms Product (Optical/IP/Carrier Ethernet/FTTH).
AFL has enhanced its current MicroCore product line by adding the Ruggedized MicroCore and Ruggedized MicroCore with SpiderWeb Ribbon Technology models to its existing offering. Positioned as an ideal alternative to traditional inside plant central loose tube ribbon cable, “both cables eliminate concerns associated with edge fiber stresses due to preferential bend of encapsulated ribbons,” says the company.
Coupled with the rise of connected things within smart buildings, many firms have embarked on a new kind of digital transformation that relies on the promise of IoT devices and the data they generate to create a better working environment. So how do you use this data to shift the paradigm from reactive to proactive and really harness the true potential of these emerging technologies? In this webinar, you’ll learn how to get the most from your IoT investments and go beyond mere efficiency.
Connectivity Wireless leads a discussion with thought leaders from Rubenstein Partners and EDGE Technologies on developing a smart infrastructure today to support the smart buildings of tomorrow.
Better technology is one reason why computing is again becoming more distributed. Devices at the edge, from smartphones to machinery on the shop floor, are becoming more intelligent. Equipped with powerful processors, they can now tackle computing problems that a few years ago needed a fully loaded server. As for software, its increased flexibility means it can function well on the edge. Many applications are now “virtualised”, meaning they exist separately from any specific type of hardware: code can thus be packaged in digital “containers” and easily moved around within data centres—and, increasingly, closer to the edge.
