Kyoto Semiconductor has developed a high-speed photodiode KP-H KPDEH12L-CC1C to support 400Gbps transmission systems that use PAM4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation 4) inside and between data centers. With the introduction of this InGaAs photodiode, the company is continually supporting the increasing speeds and capacity requirements for transmission systems in 5G networks and beyond. Mass production will start in November, 2020.
5G is billed as the connectivity fabric that will support a new era of consumer and enterprise experiences. But, in the context of smart buildings, 5G is part of a larger equation that also encompasses artificial intelligence and the internet of things. The combination of the three–5G, AI and IoT–will allow for real-time data collection and analysis that will make buildings more efficient and more user-friendly. Building owners with a robust technology strategy will be able to leverage these rapidly developing solution sets to reduce net operating expense while leveraging the technologies to drive up lease rates by providing new services.
The Asia Direct Cable Consortium has chosen NEC to build its new high-performance submarine cable. The finished cable will feature multiple pairs of high capacity optical fibers designed to carry more than 140 Tbps of traffic to allow for high capacity transmission of data across the East and Southeast Asian regions. As a result of ADC’s high capacity, the new submarine cable will be able to support bandwidth-intensive applications driven by technological advancements in 5G, the cloud, IoT and AI.
The Internet of Things (IoT) for business can improve processes, reduce costs, deliver operational efficiencies and transform productivity. Here are three things that every business should be doing now to make the most of the opportunities that IoT presents: Choose the right connectivity, be security ready, and keep on top of regulations.
Some leadership teams might think back to the step from 3G to 4G and remember that it was relatively easy. You got new phones for your staff, dongles, a few training modules, and you’re good to go. The shift to 5G will be significantly more complex because 5G’s speed, reliability and flexibility will have a profound impact on value chains and processes, IT and personnel, across every sector. It will allow the collection, analysis and interpretation of data that could, if handled correctly, make every corner of a business more efficient. It provides the widespread untethered connectivity that will unlock all other digital transformation ingredients – IIoT, big data, cloud computing, AI, robotics, digital twins and more.
BT launches Green Tech Innovation Platform which will use traffic optimization sensors, IoT solutions for energy and water management in social housing and public sector buildings; and 5G solutions to support reduced travel through video augmented reality or virtual reality to carry out remote repair and diagnostics by health and other public sector workers.
Fifth-generation wireless technology, more commonly known as 5G, promises download speeds of up to 100 times faster than 4G, all with dramatically lower latency. U.S. carriers are beginning to boast about the number of 5G markets in which they have rolled out 5G service
The 5G Open Innovation Lab (5G OI Lab), founded by Intel, NASA and T-Mobile, has launched, providing selected start-ups with advanced access to platforms to develop, test and bring to market new use cases that unleash the potential of 5G networks both now and in the future.
Optical Fiber to the premises/home is part of FTTX initiatives related to FTTH. FTTx initiates include fiber for small cells and DAS, fiber for mobile transport, and more. Fiber is everywhere.
This webinar will focus on how you can prepare for successful commissioning and deployment of 5G in the field and beyond. Whether you work at a service provider, in an enterprise or you are an individual wireless or fiber contractor, we’ll include case studies and tips to make your deployments faster, more accurate and with fewer reworks and repeat visits. Key topics include:Why thoroughly testing at every stage of 5G is the only option; Testing process from antenna to core; and analytics to help service providers plan and optimize.
