The five hottest trends include: mass capacity storage devices deployed in the public cloud; open architectures will continue to be in demand; data security and protection will become even more important; and innovation and collaboration will continue to drive the trend toward better connectivity.

TIA Position Paper:Trust in ICT Supply Chain Security Can Only Come from Global Industry-Driven Standards and Programs

The global telecom network is at a greater risk for #cyberattacks than ever – it threatens to disrupt business & economic growth. Learn how our industry & TIA is responding through industry-driven #ICT supply chain security standards. TIA’s position paper outlines the new landscape of security and economic risks to all those involved in developing and deploying wireless, IoT, 5G, and computer-rich networks.

Optical Fiber and Plastic Conduit Market to Reach $11.77 Bn, Globally, by 2026 at 20.6% CAGR

Widespread implementation of 5G, rise in adoption of fiber to the home (FTTH) connectivity, advent of the internet of things (IoT), and demand for highly secure and safe wiring systems drive the growth of the global optical fiber and plastic conduit market. However, high installation cost of optical fiber and conduits and rise of the wireless communication systems hinder the market growth. On the other hand, rise in investments in optical fiber cable (OFC) network infrastructure and emerging trends toward cable-in-conduits systems create new opportunities in the market.

Tech Primer: Dark Fiber, Lit Fiber and Wavelengths

To fulfill the growing demand for bandwidth driven by Cloud services, IoT and interconnected infrastructures, dark fiber providers have entered the market and are working to provide massive bandwidth, low latency, and high quality connectivity to the end customer in the form of raw glass: dark fiber.This article explains the basic concepts of fiber optics and the difference between dark fiber, lit fiber and wavelengths. You can learn about the pros and cons of dark fiber versus lit services from carriers.
 

ICT in 2020—What’s In Store and How Can You Prepare?

A recent survey of professionals across the information and communications technology (ICT) industry indicates that user organizations have begun to adopt latest-generation technologies like the Internet of Things, and more users plan to do so in the near future. For professionals who design, install, or supply the physical-layer systems that support these technologies, it is essential to understand their bandwidth and power requirements. This webinar will review highlights of the survey, paying specific attention to the anticipated uptake of IoT devices, remote powering via Power over Ethernet, 5G, and end-user organizations’ plans to upgrade their cabling systems’ capabilities.

Buildings to see a spur in cyberthreats as they become more connected

Building Internet of Things (BIoT) will likely see a spur in cyberthreats as they become more connected suggest Honeywell prediction. The surge of smart buildings will put data and reputation of companies at potentially greater risk due to less-guarded entry points for buildings and lack of focus on cybersecurity when managing OT (Operational Technology). Another prediction was around cybersecurity for OT in buildings. The technology giant suggested that with buildings becoming smarter, they tend to produce more connected data, thereby attracting more potential threats.

Ethernet Enables Connected Intelligence in 2020

It’s hard to believe but 10Mb/s Ethernet is becoming a very hot topic in the industry again. I get asked “Why are we going back to the 1980s?” There is a simple answer, and to those of us in the industry at that time, it’s very familiar. In that era before Ethernet became ubiquitous, networking truly was the wild west. Everyone had their own protocols, physical layers, connectors etc. However, since then IT has converged a core set of technologies, with Ethernet leading the way, that provides seamless connectivity to billions of people.
