Sumitomo Electric Lightwave has released the newest addition to the Quantum Fusion Splicer portfolio, Type-Q102-M12. The splicer’s new features and benefits, including consistent, quality low-loss splicing, compatibility with Lynx Custom=fit 2 splice-on connectors, and SEL’s dual independent ovens, make the splicer capable of deploying next-generation hyperscale networks.
HUBER+SUHNER’s new Direct GPS-over-Fiber (GPSoF) platform facilitates the ability to make a fiber optic connection directly onto an antenna, eliminating the need for a separate power line. This new capability has the potential to revolutionize the remote antenna application landscape by addressing power constraints at the remote end,” contends that company. The Direct GPSoF line of cables is expected to provide significant benefits to installations within the aerospace and defense markets.
Gartner forecasts that the enterprise and automotive Internet of Things (IoT) market will grow to 5.8 billion endpoints in 2020, a 21% increase from 2019. By the end of 2019, 4.8 billion endpoints are expected to be in use, up 21.5% from 2018. Utilities will be the highest user of IoT endpoints, totalling 1.17 billion endpoints in 2019, and increasing 17% in 2020 to reach 1.37 billion endpoints.
Overcoming the Challenges at Texas A&M Kyle Field due to the Changing Landscape of Always Connected Technology
Tellabs Optical LAN fiber-based stadium network is the foundation enabling Texas A&M’s Kyle Field to surpass previous game day data traffic peak usage. In order to meet the demands of all these new services without the cost and complexity of legacy technologies, TAMU chose a converged infrastructure, with optical fiber cabling and power delivery to the edge, for both LAN and DAS needs.
Much has been written about the Internet of Things (IoT) over the last few years, discussing both the explosive growth projections in the number of attached devices and the anticipated value to global business that they will bring. The growth projections alone are staggering. From 2013-2025 the numerical growth shows 100 billion IoT devices globally by 2025 with commercial/industrial electronics, communications and consumer making up the biggest segments.
Siemon’s latest Tech Brief focuses on a design strategy that colocation facilities can utilize to save on time, space and costs – Zone distribution areas (ZDAs) can between the MMR and tenant.
When companies are deploying cabling in new locations, there are many decisions to be taken, but one of the most fundamental will be what type of fibre to use. And a key choice will be whether to opt for single or multi-mode fibre.
If there is a global recession in the offing, no one has told the top cloud and colocation providers. Global data center construction is booming, as the leading cloud and colocation providers will add an estimated 14 million-square-feet of capacity this year, according to a report by IHS Markit. In addition, another 4.5 million square-foot of capacity is already in the works for the first half of next year. IHS Markit is currently tracking 135 new data center building and expansion projects that are slated to finish this year.
It is doubtful that the 116th Congress will muster any broad-based response that will materially change the trajectory of the United States’s deployment of 5G technology or the security of the network. Because 5G will remain a private-sector-led initiative in the United States, the government’s role is limited largely to debating regulatory issues.
The ongoing buildout of 5G network infrastructure is having a profound impact on the shape of the physical network, prompting changes in how the supporting software behaves.
