Facilities which employ office building energy management systems could see a dramatic savings of 15 to 30 percent. This is what IT needs to know.
Experts agree: without a modern, real-time-capable infrastructure, neither the Internet of Things (IoT), nor autonomous driving or Smart Cities can be realized. The fact is that data volumes around the globe are exploding. Real-time data processing is only possible with 5G mobile communications and Edge Computing. Modern & high-performance fiber optics cabling is the prerequisite.
IoT specialist Kerlink has announced that it is demonstrating how smart city networks can deliver the same benefits for small towns that they do for metropolitan areas using LoRaWAN wireless technology.
Single Pair Ethernet is a key development and the infrastructure that will make another level of IIoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity possible. For the reliable establishment of the entire future SPE ecosystem, standards for transmission protocols, cabling and device components are all being jointly developed by a broad coalition of industrial automation and control suppliers.
Listen to this interview Dan Barrera With Ideal Networks About TIA 42 Cabling Standards & Testing Processes and the upcoming Single Pair Ethernet standard.
The advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) provides businesses with a means to make these important networks part of a cohesive Ethernet-based network, bringing powerful new benefits to the adopters. SPE provides the last link in a chain of communications from the cloud to the network edge, all in a single protocol network. That in itself drives enormous value because now ALL information is available readily, easily transported and stored, unlocking huge data sets to power analytics. The transparency and availability of this information drives better and faster decisions for businesses. leading to higher levels of service for their customers.
Prysmian, Nokia Bell Labs and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology have achieved a record-setting 1 Petabit per second transmission over an optical fiber with standard dimensions. The experiment combines highly spectral efficient wideband optical transmission with an optical fiber guiding 15 spatial modes and the use of specific mode multiplexers. The total capacity of the network has been 1 Petabit per second, corresponding to simultaneous 8K-TV broadcasting for 10 million people.
The pandemic changed everything: the way we work, teach, learn, attend conferences, shop and entertain ourselves. If we managed to avoid the virus, it even changed how we consult with our healthcare providers. “In person” became “online” for many of our everyday activities, putting a big strain on the world’s broadband networks. That the current network has been able to absorb all the extra traffic is miraculous, although the bulk of additional video calls, classes and other communications occurred during the day, which lessened the impact.
Everstream will launch fiber cable deployments in seven Midwest markets to support 5G mobile network requirements. The company says the 1,047 route miles of fiber networks will help to connect more than 2,000 macro cell towers in those markets and offer backhaul support.
