Edge provides a huge opportunity to host many use cases on one infrastructure, manageable from a single pane of glass. Getting close to end-users not only allows the operator to tap directly into the new revenue streams for ultra-low latency/ultra-reliable services, but also to provide “edge-as-a-service,” and other infrastructure-as-a-service and hosting services to other enterprises.
Active optical cables are key components in the high-speed systems needed to handle the exponential increase in data traffic that will come with 5G. According to the figure being passed around at DesignCon 2020, only 15% of the 5G infrastructure has been installed so far. That means a tremendous number of transmitters, small cells, antennas, data centers, and devices will be needed — and millions of miles of cable, connecting continents, data centers, service providers, and users.
5G networks are being penciled into big business IT plans, given their guarantee of low latency, information transfer speeds that can be as much as 100 times quicker than 4G networks and anticipated capacity to deal with IoT devices. What should CEOs and key IT advisors do to prepare?
The shift from simple phone banks to omnichannel contact centers involves the integration of multiple technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and cloud computing. The widespread deployment of 5G networks will also enhance the experience of contact center customers, who increasingly expect answers on demand. These technologies will necessarily increase the need for privacy and security in 2020.
Legrand’s Infinium Quantum Fiber system offers the lowest total system loss on the market (64% improvement over standard systems), opening the opportunity to challenge the limits of what was previously impossible.
What do you want to know about the future of optical fiber? The Fiber Optics Tech Consortium will answer your questions during their BICSI Panel discussion.
NeoPhotonics’ new 400G capable ClearLight CFP2-DCO transceiver is being shipped for end-customer trials. This is the industry’s first transceiver module able to deliver as much as 32 Terabits of capacity per fiber – significantly higher than today’s 200G CFP2-DCO capacity or the emerging 400G CFP2-DCO capacity.
Smart buildings are quickly becoming the building blocks of smart cities, providing benefits to both the building owners and tenants. They provide greater energy efficiency, improved use of building resources, and increased productivity of the occupants.
A recent report from independent research firm, Verdantix, provides an in-depth analysis of IoT platforms for smart buildings answering questions such as: Which IoT platforms for smart buildings will meet the requirements of my organization? Which IoT platforms for smart buildings are leading the market? How does your existing building IoT platform implementation compare to other products available on the market? And, ow to prioritize your building IoT software investments? Download the free report and discover the answers to these and many other questions about the smart building revolution.
NeoPhotonics Has shipped its first 400G capable ClearLight CFP2-DCO transceivers for end customer trials.The transceivers deliver 32Tbits per fiber – significantly higher than today’s 200G CFP2-DCO capacity or the emerging 400G CFP2-DCO capacity– by using internal optics that can support 80 channels of 64 Gbaud data at 75 GHz wavelength channel spacing.
