Worldwide fiber-optic cable shortage looms over 5G, data center infrastructure rollouts
The fiber crunch is here, according to new research from market intelligence analyst Cru Group. A worldwide shortage of fiber-optic cable has driven up product pricing and lengthened lead times on supply, casting a shadow over ambitious industry plans for advanced telecommunications infrastructure rollouts. Governments around the world have set ambitious targets for the rollout of superfast broadband and 5G infrastructure, both of which of course require vast quantities of fiber-optic cable to be laid underground. At the same time, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Facebook owner Meta are in the process of expanding their data center footprints around the world to meet soaring demand, including globe-spanning deployments of subsea fiber-optic cabling. Prices for fiber have now reached their highest level since July 2019. North America has been less severely impacted than Europe, China and India — but that may not be for long.

ICT industry not dealing with The Great Resignation but rather, The Great Retirement
Overall compensation for ICT professionals was down this past year, in no small part because the most-experienced workers are leaving the workforce. Three factors that depressed compensation in 2021: 1) inflation was considered transitory until late 2021 and did not show up in last year’s paychecks; 2) overtime and bonus pay reduced sharply from 2020; and 3) more-experienced and higher-paid workers left the workforce, driving down the mean compensation among the workforce as a whole. On the bright side, women represented 9% of participants, which is the highest percentage in the survey’s four years and up from 4% a year ago.
2021 Network and cabling salary survey results
