Why Edge Computing and why now? –

most IT departments have still only been managing IT infrastructure consisting of thousands of end points on their network. IoT (Internet of Things) devices and smart phones changed all that. Now, there are literally billions of devices that want to process instructions, collect data and communicate with the centre in real-time.

Webinar: New MPO Multi-Fiber Connectors at the Tower – New Test Requirements for Fiber Inspection

The use of MPO (Multi-Fiber Push on) Connectors is growing in today’s Wireless networks. 5G is driving this change by requiring more bandwidth and fibers throughout the Mobility network. Traditional Fiber architectures include simplex and/or duplex Fiber connectors, these new MPO connectors present new and unique challenges to installation and maintenance at the Tower. This session will review the emergence of these new connectors, their place in 5G network architecture, new test requirements and challenges presented.

Edge Computing: Technology Behind Fastest Data Processing

The technology of edge computing is growing because it helps companies get information in the fastest way. 75% of data produced by an enterprise can be created and processed outside of a traditional centralized data center or cloud, only it is required to move the data and storage as close as possible to the edge of the computing where the data is actually being processed. Edge computing technology is used in manufacturing, farming, workplace safety, network optimization, transportation, retail as well as improved healthcare services.
