Read this interview with Doug Moore, Chairman of TIA’s Board of Directors and CEO of Fujitsu Network Communications. Moore explores the issues currently facing the ICT industry as the world begins to emerge after more than a year under work-from-home and social distancing advisory orders and discusses the challenges and opportunities lie ahead for our industry.
Compared to office leases in the city for non-smart buildings, MIT Center for Real Estate researcher Alfredo Keitaro Bando Hano (2018) found that office properties with smart building attributes attracted rents that commanded a 37 percent premium on effective rent per net square feet.
CRE building owners looking to make their building smarter must connect desired outcomes to how the building currently performs. The buildings in which we live, work and play are fundamentally changing to provide a more connected, safer and smarter surrounding environment. To accomplish this, many organizations are converging IT and OT groups as part of a new strategic approach to managing buildings and the migration of systems and subsystems to operate over IP networks. There are many factors driving new advancements in commercial real estate property technology around the world, but perhaps none loom as large as preparing for the general population to re-emerge from Covid-19 lockdown, more than a year of doing everything “- from home.”
How Fiber-Deep Network Solutions and 5G Can Help the Hospitality Industry Recover Post-COVID | The Signal Network Blog by Corning
Few industries were hit harder by the pandemic than hospitality.Even with the expected economic boom due to pent u p travel demand, the industry will take years to fully recover. But it’s also an opportunity for hospitality to build back better. Simultaneous with the industry’s recovery will be the widespread rollout of fiber-deep and data rich networks like 5G and WIFI6. These networks can support technologies that help hotel guests feel safer post-pandemic, and enable the industry to lay the groundwork for other high-tech services in the future.
Smart cities work because of infrastructure that supports the mass of connected technologies and devices. IoT, autonomous vehicles, consumer-facing applications and back-end processing systems rely on the speed of fiber optic cables connecting to IT infrastructure housed in a data center. This infographic details what it takes to build the infrastructure to support them.
To address the soaring energy consumption for Ethernet, data centers and 5G, HyperLight has designed an integrated electro-optic modulator capable of achieving sub-volt modulators with a 3-dB bandwidth > 100 GHz, a previously impossible voltage-bandwidth achievement. The broadband electro-optic PIC could lead to orders of magnitude energy consumption reduction for next generation optical networking.
As service providers and enterprises rethink what the edge means for their infrastructure, it is clear that it will take a village to deliver optimized 5G applications over optimized networks. Although network equipment providers offer end-to-end 5G solutions, there’s a strong trend toward disaggregating the network and relying on focused, best-of-breed solution providers to deliver architectural components. Let us take a look at what this means for network service providers.
As 5G deployments continue toward the goal of ubiquitous coverage, two apparently conflicting trends are developing: C-RAN and Edge Computing. To understand why these two apparently diametrically opposed trends are happening, we need to look at the drivers of each, and when we do, we’ll see there isn’t necessarily an inevitable “collision.” But Service Providers need to plan for each of these trends with a network that is expandable, flexible and accessible.
This first White Paper of three, reviews the development of CORD through ONF and the drivers that allow new technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), etc. to move forward.
According to the recently released “The State of 5G” survey from Molex and third-party research firm, Dimensional Research, 61% believe 5G is likely to need a “killer app”, like video was to 4G. The average consumer ‘on the street’ can perhaps be forgiven for only seeing how apps on their smartphones can benefit from 5G’s potential. Beyond that though, 5G is not just about mobile wireless and what it can do. In practice, “fixed wireless” can also take advantage of 5G’s promised increases in feeds and speeds, and this opens a whole world of new benefits to consumers and industry alike.
