ICT industry not dealing with The Great Resignation but rather, The Great Retirement

Overall compensation for ICT professionals was down this past year, in no small part because the most-experienced workers are leaving the workforce. Three factors that depressed compensation in 2021: 1) inflation was considered transitory until late 2021 and did not show up in last year’s paychecks; 2) overtime and bonus pay reduced sharply from 2020; and 3) more-experienced and higher-paid workers left the workforce, driving down the mean compensation among the workforce as a whole. On the bright side, women represented 9% of participants, which is the highest percentage in the survey’s four years and up from 4% a year ago.

Why Manufacturer Cable Warranties are So Important

Looking at copper and fiber cabling plants, one of the best ways to gain more value is to ensure it comes with a long-term replacement warranty directly from the cable manufacturer. Obtaining a full manufacturer’s warranty can only be accomplished through cable certification testing. Without proving passing certification test results, your cabling will not be fully covered by most manufacturer warranties. In this article, we’re going to explore what a cable manufacturing warranty is, why you want one and how to best obtain a warranty for future cable installs.

Self-Cleaning Optical Fiber Powers Supercontinuum Light Sources | Research & Technology | May 2022 | Photonics.com

Using two types of glass with different refractive indexes and that are stacked in a specific arrangement, researchers developed a multimode fiber with a parabolic refractive index that enabled transmission up to the mid-infrared and high nonlinearity. The spectrum of short pulses of light injected into the fiber massively broadened, to span from the visible to mid-infrared. The light beam remained smooth because of self-cleaning dynamics induced by the parabolic refractive index. Such a light source, with and ultrabroad spectrum, smooth beam, and high power, could be used in environmental sensing or high-resolution imaging for medical diagnostics.

The Emergence of Hyperscale Edge Computing

The definition of edge computing is expanding. With high internet-dependent and virtual data flood becoming the stumbling blocks needed to be removed as well as the development of more sophisticated services and storage demand, the future calls for hyperscale edge computing, an evolve data center that is scalable, highly efficient in performance, provides lowest latency and smarter data processing.

6 Benefits of Edge Computing You Need To Know

In edge computing the computing happens close to the “edge” of the network rather than in a central location. With less traveling distance and more data sources to navigate, benefits include: ease of supporting other tech solutions; fewer privacy leaks because of faster response time; better connectivity and less overload on the server; scalability; 5G capability; and lower costs.
