They Say Patience is a Virtue, but We Need More Bandwidth… NOW!

Posted by James Donovan on November 29, 2016

Waiting for files to load is a frustration we’ve all felt at one time or another, but is it fair to blame our network? Are we losing valuable working time or are we too impatient?

File transfer applications are probably the most common data activity on users’ devices, whether they be PC, tablet or mobile devices attached to cellular and other networks. In many cases the user or device must wait for the file transfer to complete before allowing the user to act on the file. If a file transfer takes too long, the user finds the delay unacceptable and also loses productive time.

It is the user’s subjective reaction that determines what ‘time to wait’ is acceptable. As the time to wait is directly linked to the bandwidth and speed of the network doing the transfer, we can see why bandwidth demands will continue to increase.

Next Step for AIM Technology

I love to run when I’m not playing with networks at work. In the past 11 years, I’ve run a full marathon each year plus other shorter races. 

Completing a full marathon is definitely a case of mind over matter! As you run 26.2 miles (or just under 42.2 kilometers), you’ve got a lot of time to think. In my case, I am very happy to finish anywhere between four and five hours – that’s several hours to worry (and make excuses)! The approach that works best for me is to establish lots of short-term goals as I progress my run: the next step, the next 1 km, the next landmark. If I dwell on the fact that I have multiple miles still to finish, the aches and worries return with malice.

Lighting-compressedThis blog post is part of a series about intelligent buildings based on content from the CommScope Connected and Efficient Buildings e-book.

Inspiring user experiences at home with connected devices are fueling the appetite for similar experiences in the workplace. Many companies are exploring ways to enhance their workplaces to attract and retain top talent. Designers and architects can create exciting spaces, but organizations still have to justify the costs. The Internet of Things (IoT) can enable companies to realize cost savings and greater efficiencies that validate their investments. Key areas for IoT investment in the workplace are lighting and space utilization.

AIM Steps Into the Spotlight

Posted by Feras Hani on November 20, 2016

If you were to gather a group of enterprise facility and IT folks together and ask them to define an intelligent—or as I prefer, “The Connected & Efficient”—building, chances are no two people would have the exact same answer. While many people have their own definition, I’d offer a common, indispensable and defining characteristic that a connected and efficient facility should have: automated infrastructure management, or AIM.

An AIM system combines intelligent hardware and software, which gives IT managers a full vision of all the physical connections in enterprise buildings (locally and remotely), instant knowledge of changes and generates updated reports on what devices are connected where and how. It also provides unprecedented visibility and control over their network connectivity that enables IT managers to monitor and maintain their infrastructure automatically and in real time. This will significantly shorten troubleshooting time required in case of downtime, gives limitless control onto the physical infrastructure, improves work order management and better security, and improves change and asset management. Without that “The Connected and Efficient Building” would not exist.
