Increasingly, applications at the network edge—Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, machine-to-machine communications and the like—are generating tremendous amounts of data. Many such applications demand ultra-reliable low-latency (mid, single-digit millisecond) performance. The challenges of coping with this growing flood of data—to and from the edge—are keeping data center managers awake at night. Here’s what we know.
There are three methods of installing optical fiber: Conventional cabling whereby optical fiber cable is pulled through innerducts and into conduit; Blown cable systems that use a blowing technique to install cables with a reduced diameter through conduit; and blown fiber systems where optical fiber bundles, rather than cables are blown into empty tube cables.
OM5 was chosen to be the new standard for the wideband multimode fiber in the upcoming 3rd edition of the ISO/IEC 11801. The acceptance of this standard is a milestone for the fiber cabling performance category because it extends the benefits of this revolutionary multimode fiber within connected buildings and data centers worldwide. Compared with OM3 and OM4, which are suitable for transmission in the range of 850nm wavelength, the new optical cabling class OM5 can operate within a range of 850nm to 950nm, thus increasing the performance and the quality of connectivity in your data center.
Going into 2020, Wi-Fi 6, multi-gig switching, and automated security are the key IT areas that need to be prioritized by those wishing to get ahead of the competition.

The Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, 5G and the rise of the edge have been catalysts for the growth of opportunities to derive new data-driven business value. 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.
By enabling higher speeds, lower latencies, and more #M2M connections, the arrival of #5G #networking is already sparking a revolution amongst #datacenters. Entire industries are simultaneously planning for a new era of connectivity and bracing themselves for what is set to be one of the most influential roll-outs in technological history. And there’s more to come.
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.
Infinite Electronics brand Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has introduced a comprehensive portfolio of 5G RF system solutions, comprised of high-grade RF components and cable assemblies shipped same-day to support 5G innovation, testing and deployments.
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.
