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.
A new wave of high-speed coherent optical components are expected gain widespread adoption in 2021, according to Dell’Oro analyst Jimmy Yu.
While vendors like Nokia, Ciena, and Infinera have been teasing faster and faster optics for years, Yu noted in a blog post that the optical transport market is a research and development heavy industry, with multi-year product cycles. “Grand ideas and proof of concepts announced years ago steadily build toward commercialization and main stream adoption over the course of a few years,” he wrote.
Yu said several long-hyped optical technologies, including those offering higher line rates up to 800 Gb/s, are likely reach the market in 2021.
As the digital transformation era throttles forward, many hot topics like 5G and cybersecurity will continue to take a front-row seat in 2021. Meanwhile, additional trends that support the increased demand for bandwidth have come to the forefront.
The six installment in Bob Hult’s Technology Trends series examines the rise of data centers and the shift to cloud and edge computing.
5G Network Installations Set to Skyrocket Fiber Optics Market | by Yisela Alvarez Trentini | Oct, 2020
Fiber optics technology uses flexible, transparent glass (silica) or plastic strings to transmit information. Each strand is equipped to carry light between the two ends of the fiber.Because they……
VeEX has introduced an improved MTX150 10G multi-service handheld test set. Offering a combination of legacy and modern test interfaces, and covering data rates up to 10 Gbps, the MTX150 covers all traditional interfaces from 64 kbps to 10 Gbps, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SDH/SONET, PDH/DSn, codirectional, and serial datacom test ports.
Edge computing reduces the latency between a device and service where latency is the roundtrip time between two systems over a network. While reducing latency is one of the its main benefits, edge computing has other benefits that will be exposed as 5G use cases are discussed.
This webinar gives data center managers some key cabling strategies to manage multiple waves of 5G — helping ensure next-generation coverage for billions of devices. Topics include the three phases of 5G deployment, data processing at the edge to reduce latency, and centralized data centers to support the workloads generated by 5G.
