Ahead of the kickoff to the NFL’s 100th season, Verizon announced that it is bringing 5G “Ultra Wideband” connectivity to 13 NFL stadiums. At some of the venues, including New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, the field the New York Jets and Giants call home, the stadium is the only local place a consumer with a 5G handset (there are currently only a few) can experience the next-generation network.
IoT Analytics’ recent study on 5G reveals 44 different IoT use cases and estimates these use cases will account for 76M 5G connections by 2025 . This article highlights seven of the most promising 5G use cases in IoT settings that could have the largest market potential.
Learn Fiber Optic technology basics including fiber types, connector types, types of impairments, and best practices for installing, certifying, and troubleshooting fiber optic systems. Sessions will include technology overviews, reviews of test applications, and in-depth product demonstrations.
The concept of networking in office buildings evolving from a competitive selling feature to a necessary fourth utility alongside electricity, gas, and water has developed in the last 10 years. The need to enable more instrumentation and control points inside buildings requires wired and wireless networks to connect them back to the services that orchestrate their overall operations. The fourth utility has to span from basement to roof, and from carpeted floors to the parking garage. Cabling infrastructure that is not future-ready will require replacement or augmentation to accommodate the inevitable changes to the attached active electronics over the cabling’s 20-year useful life.
Very recently on its website, IDEAL Networks posed the salient premise and question, 5G is coming – should LAN installers panic? Interest around 5G has built significantly over the past year. But should this promise of improved mobile performance be a cause for concern for LAN cable providers and installers? Read the answers to the six questions posed by IDEAL.
Energy costs related to cooling account for approximately 37% of the overall data center power consumption and are one of the fastest rising data center operational costs! Join Panduit September 25, 10am CST to learn how effective airflow management products can reduce energy costs.
This paper will allow you to make educated decisions when choosing a structured cabling solution that will last for multiple generations of hardware upgrades. It discusses: How the current and future generation of optics work; The pros and cons of each fiber optic polarity option; and The cabling design options for your data center.
Join WESCO and Corning for a BICSI accredited presentation discussing the impact of IoT and 5G on traditional networks, the optical based solutions available and the design options that will help the infrastructure scale with the technology and prepare your business for the massive growth in network traffic that is expected over the next few years.
Protecting network traffic from the noise and heat inherent with PoE is critically important. Download Berk-Tek’s white paper for an overview of the real-world challenges that are taxing copper-based cabling systems as IP convergence becomes more prevalent.
The lifecycle of a traditional enterprise Ethernet switch, supported by copper cable, is 5 to 7 years. POLs eliminate the need to rip and replace network infrastructure, requiring changes only to the endpoints. This webinar will focus on the deployment of optical line terminals, passive optical splitters and optical network terminals to optimize enterprise network architecture for modern-day applications like IoT, cloud, network-as-a-service and wireless.
