Why is Deploying Fiber Difficult in Africa?

Posted by Pape Ndaw on March 3, 2017

This blog post is part of a new video blog series—Fiber Friday. Our subject matter experts will provide you with some insight into the world of fiber optics, covering various industry topics.

There is no doubt that the African continent is an emerging market for telecoms, but it is also a challenge. One factor that is hampering efforts to deploy fiber deeper into networks is the lack of available skilled labor.  

Finding enough labor with the knowledge on how to splice fiber in Africa is difficult. In this video blog, I discuss how finding qualified technicians and installers are impacting the quality, reliability and profitability of high-speed fiber network deployment.


Data Center Alarms Are Ringing

The evolution of the data center is at a critical point. As the amount of information traveling through data centers continues to increase rapidly, getting peak performance from all data center components and systems, including structured cabling, is more important than ever.

There are so many products, components and systems that data center administrators can deploy to better manage their computing ecosystem. That’s why I’ll be speaking with other industry experts next week during the Data Center Management and Administration webcast hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance.


Top Promising Innovations – FACT ODF Platform

Posted by Diederik Houben on March 1, 2017

Top Promising Innovation_FactNote: Last year, we unveiled our top 40 innovations made by CommScope or one of its acquired companies. This recognition was part of our 40th anniversary celebration. We are proud of all our innovations—past and present. Now, we look to new innovations that we hope will become the essential building blocks for the networks of the future. In a series of blogs, we will introduce you to our Top Promising Innovations in the world of wireless and fiber optics. We believe these innovations have the potential to have significant impact on the industry, much like some of the others from our past.


Finding the Right Data Center Model

Posted by Kam Patel on February 28, 2017

Data_Center_womanData center needs are always changing. Managers can align their data center capacity by either choosing to stay with their own onsite capacity or migrating all of their applications to a public, shared cloud. Some may choose to rent space in a multi-tenant data center (MTDC), moving away from their own facilities entirely. So how do managers decide when and how to evolve their data centers?

The Future is "Cities"

Posted by Kiran Katariya on February 22, 2017

Smart_cities_chartIf the latest trends of urbanization in India are believed, people will want to settle in a city atmosphere, even though they’ll be more crowded with higher levels of carbon emissions. The biggest reason for this is because there are more opportunities for human prosperity in and around cities.  

People have long been building up cities with the blend of craftsmanship and technology. But recently, we have been able to use software and devices to monitor and govern the city in real time. The Internet of Things leads to an increase in penetration of connectivity in urban surroundings, ranging from people’s homes and cars to garbage bins and LED lights in offices. 


Check out the narrowest 1400 MHz capable multiband antenna

Posted by Martin Zimmerman on February 21, 2017

Wireless network operators are acquiring new frequency bands to add to their networks in order to better support subscribers. New spectrum requires new cell site antennas that support the latest frequency bands. With Mobile World Congress 2017 coming soon, I want to give an update about the roll-out of new frequency bands in the wireless industry and how CommScope supports them with ultra-wideband antennas—including the narrowest 1400 MHz capable multiband antenna on the market today.


Traveling Wish List: In-flight Massage and More Coffee Creamer

Posted by Jessica Olstad on February 20, 2017

Airplane_LaptopI’m a lean traveler, especially if I’m flying. I wear clothes on the plane that I know I can wear again. I pack my over-the-shoulder purse. I wear slip-on shoes. I have every mini shampoo and lotion known to man. Less is more! But in the last six months as I started to travel much more for work, I began to think less about my physical comfort and more about my virtual comfort.

CNN recently aired a story about the future of airplane travel. And it’s all about wireless connectivity. We have Wi-Fi on most flights now, and you can go paperless with your boarding pass. But there’s so much more beyond that: services in-flight that you use with your cell phone (80 percent of people have some kind of device with them anyway), virtual reality, and my favorite … the sleeping pods with built-in light and noise preferences.
