A recent survey of professionals across the information and communications technology (ICT) industry indicates that user organizations have begun to adopt latest-generation technologies like the Internet of Things, and more users plan to do so in the near future. For professionals who design, install, or supply the physical-layer systems that support these technologies, it is essential to understand their bandwidth and power requirements. This webinar will review highlights of the survey, paying specific attention to the anticipated uptake of IoT devices, remote powering via Power over Ethernet, 5G, and end-user organizations’ plans to upgrade their cabling systems’ capabilities.
Korea’s OptoNest has unveiled an optical MPO splitter that features an LC-type connector input and a 12-channel MPO connector as the output port. The splitter, which conforms to TIA/EIA 604-5 and IEC 61754-7 standards and is suitable for RoHS requirements, measures 82x12x8 mm and is designed to remove the chance of performance degradation from bending or folding of the optical fiber cable. The splitter is designed not to expose the fiber-optic cable in between. OptoNest is aiming the splitter at fiber to the home (FTTH) and 5G mobile network applications.
While you might think of 5G wireless as a cool consumer tech concept, don’t lose sight of the fact that it will have a significant impact on enterprise IT. In the race to 5G, there are political pressures for countries to be “first” 5G, and for vendors to dominate market share. As these competitive pressures build, enterprise CIOs are being asked to think about what they need to do to be ready for 5G, what business cases can or will benefit from 5G, and if or when they should deploy 5G. None of the answers to these issues are straightforward, as 5G itself is in a state of disruptive deployment.
3 predictions for the Data Center Market: AI will drive adoption of new technologies; DC operators will increase their use of new AI to maximize employee productivity; and advanced technologies like 5G start to find their way in the data center.
Do you know which use cases 5G is realistically expected to support by 2025? Or how it will be possible for 5G to deliver on its multifaceted promise by then? Attend this webinar and learn: What 5G is (now) and it will be (by 2025), Which 5G use cases are likely to change our world by 2025 (maybe autonomous vehicles, maybe not…), Which near- and long-term 5G network challenges worry operators the most and why, from specific domains (e.g., radio access) to end-to-end network slicing, and What is needed to ensure that 5G fully delivers by 2025, if not earlier, and what can be done starting today.
We’re only a few days into the New Year and all we can say is the outlook is uncertain. The enthusiastic hype that has filled the news in the past with promises of 5G solving the world’s problems has turned to skepticism. “Smart” cities are being discussed as not such a smart idea anymore. The latest battles in the “pole wars” we’ve written about before now focus on placement of small cells for 4G/5G, not on installing aerial fiber optic cables.
The next generation of bend-improved fibers will be a critical tool for network providers and operators working to support 5G.
The shift to 5G feels like a tech revolution happening in slow motion. In 2019, AT&T and Verizon, the two largest American carriers, lit up their 5G networks in a small number of cities. Handset makers released only a handful of phones compatible with the new standard. The overwhelming majority of us saw no meaningful improvement to our cellular networks.
AT&T and Deloitte University will bring 5G network connectivity and edge computing services to Deloitte to help the college transform the future of digital corporate learning and workplace collaboration in the university’s 700,000 sq. ft. leadership and learning center located near Dallas in Westlake, Texas. The new communications platform will help enable DU to explore new technologies and innovations to enhance experiential learning programs and overall guest experiences. MEC and 5G will be installed at the center to support specific use cases.
As cities get smarter, they are becoming more livable and more responsive—and today we are seeing only a preview of what technology could eventually do in the urban environment. Now technology is being injected more directly into the lives of residents. Smartphones have become the keys to the city, putting instant information about transit, traffic, health services, safety alerts, and community news into millions of hands.
