The #Cloud is moving toward the #Edge in an effort to be closer to the cloud customers and the Edge is accelerating access to the Cloud from anywhere by offering lower transport costs, more choices, faster connectivity, better reliability, and accelerated performance.
This white paper from CommScope covers how to create an integrated suite of connectivity solutions; without adding layers of complexity; understand where and how key technologies such as PoE, IoT, Wireless, etc. fit.; how to flatten complexity with shared infrastructure; how to wire for the future, not just the present; the ins and outs of adding wireless connectivity.
Cabling Installation & Maintenance recently asked Carol Everett Oliver, RCDD, ESS, DCDC, and BICSI President Elect, to weigh in on hot topics in the information and communications technology (ICT) sphere.
As the transition to a digital world continues, the pressure is on for data centers to meet the increased connectivity challenges this transition brings. Data centers must be scalable, faster and more efficient, which is driving the development of fiber-optic cable management systems. The Internet of Things is creating unprecedented demand on fixed networks, while the rise in cloud computing traffic, content delivery networks and edge computing are also having a significant impact.
Network connectivity has never been more critical to an organization’s operations than it is today. From boardrooms to courtrooms and from learning centers to data centers, connectivity requirements related to remote working, data streaming, building management and other applications are essential for business continuity. This multi-day online learning opportunity provides the in-depth information ICT professionals need to address today’s challenges and embrace tomorrow’s opportunities.
As service providers and enterprises rethink what the edge means for their infrastructure, it is clear that it will take a village to deliver optimized 5G applications over optimized networks. Although network equipment providers offer end-to-end 5G solutions, there’s a strong trend toward disaggregating the network and relying on focused, best-of-breed solution providers to deliver architectural components. Let us take a look at what this means for network service providers.
As 5G deployments continue toward the goal of ubiquitous coverage, two apparently conflicting trends are developing: C-RAN and Edge Computing. To understand why these two apparently diametrically opposed trends are happening, we need to look at the drivers of each, and when we do, we’ll see there isn’t necessarily an inevitable “collision.” But Service Providers need to plan for each of these trends with a network that is expandable, flexible and accessible.
With 75 billion connected devices expected by 2025 , 5G deployment, and the promise of new technologies, the ICT industry will see an unprecedented amount of data that requires rethinking the way the data center is built and managed. To meet the needs of new applications, data centers need to be hosted close to users and network functionality needs to be performed in milliseconds.
This article explores how cloud and enterprise data centers continue to drive strong demands for MMF solutions even as transmission speeds increase and single-mode fiber transceivers move into the 500m data center […]
Experts agree: without a modern, real-time-capable infrastructure, neither the Internet of Things (IoT), nor autonomous driving or Smart Cities can be realized. The fact is that data volumes around the globe are exploding. Real-time data processing is only possible with 5G mobile communications and Edge Computing. Modern & high-performance fiber optics cabling is the prerequisite.
