The green data center market is forecast to grow from $43.24 billion USD in 2018 to $147.88 billion in 2024. Sustainability has become as central to data centers as, well, data. Uptime may be king, but the energy cost of that uptime is a factor the crown cannot afford to ignore.
There is great interest in the launch of 5G networks across many industries, including wind power. One of the reasons for the focus on 5G technology is that it will be used to connect thousands of industrial IoT (IIoT) sensors and devices. These sensors have special communication characteristics that 5G has been specifically designed to handle. What many don’t know, however, is that many “5G” applications can actually be handled by today’s 4G/LTE networks. This opens up some intriguing applications of IIoT sensors and analytics in the wind power industry not only in the future, but already, today.
The topic of “sustainability” is increasingly coming to the fore through “Green IT”. Resource-conserving components with low energy consumption and environmentally friendly materials are currently the No. 1 trend topic. Rosenberger OSI’s FTT-ACP concept provides an innovative, redundant Ethernet cabling solution that can be used flexibly, reduces energy costs savings by up to 50%, requires only 31.25% of the energy required to manufacture cables for traditional savings, and offers raw materials savings of up to 70%.
