Emerging tech offices come together on long-term plan to combat coronavirus

Emerging technology programs across the federal government have come together under the common goal of fighting the spread of the coronavirus. AI and other tools such as supercomputing and advanced data analytics will play a significant, if not understated role, in the administration’s long-term response to COVID-19, the disease caused by this strain of the virus.

Webinar: Learn to choose Fiber Optic Cables for OSP Applications

To meet the requirements of diverse networks, the choice of fiber and cable types has also never been higher. From different fiber types to fiber structures within cables to cable types, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. This webinar will provide a survey of fiber and cable types to help guide the end user towards a deeper understanding of how to choose cable types for a specific application. Attendees will learn about different fiber types that are used in various outside plant networks. They will also learn about different fiber structures, such as loose tube, ribbon, and rollable ribbon fiber structures. We will also discuss the pros and cons of different cable types in different applications

Where US and China stand in deploying the ‘goldilocks of 5G spectrum’

LitePoint’s Director of Product Marketing Adam Smith and VIAVI Solutions’ Director of Marketing Kashif Hussain agree that mid-band spectrum, the 2.5 to less than sub-6 GHz space, is the spectrum sweet spot and that making effective use of it is critical to successfully deploying and scaling 5G. “Spectrum is the number one thing that differentiates 5G rollout from country to country,” Smith stated. “There are some countries that have been very aggressive at opening spectrum for 5G.”

Scaling enterprise IoT solutions using edge computing and the cloud

Just a few years ago, many expected all the Internet of Things (IoT) to move to the cloud—and much of the consumer-connected IoT indeed lives there—but one of the key basics of designing and building enterprise-scale IoT solutions is to make a balanced use of edge and cloud computing. Most IoT solutions now require a mix of cloud and edge computing which can alleviate latency, increase scalability, and enhance access to information so that better, faster decisions can be made, and enterprises can become more agile as a result.

Webinar: Assessing Smart Building Intelligence to Deliver Value, Optimized Operations

Commercial real estate developers and building owners are striving to construct smarter buildings where building systems converge and communicate over a unified IP-based infrastructure, enabling system integration that drives advanced automation for efficiency, optimized operations and enhanced occupant experiences. The implementation of 5G, edge data centers and broadband IoT connectivity, combined with new advancements in sensor technology, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) now enable buildings to become more intelligent and valuable than ever, creating the critical foundation of larger smart cities and communities. But when it comes to investment strategy, planning, designing and deploying an entire smart building ecosystem, how do key stakeholders know they are making the right decisions for maximum building intelligence and sustainability that the future demands?
