2017 Trends in the Enterprise

Posted by Ed Solis on January 11, 2017

Data_Center_BrandfolderWith changes and uncertainty in the global landscape – Brexit, President-elect Donald Trump, country leaders resigning – 2017 could be the year of massive change as businesses loosen their purse strings and invest, or organizations reduce spending while waiting to gauge the impact of changes. Even with these two different scenarios, we see a few trends for the coming year in business enterprise network infrastructure.


2017 Trends for Telecom: 5G, Net Neutrality and Emerging Markets

Posted by Jaxon Lang on January 10, 2017
Net Neutraility

As we look into 2017, CommScope is positioned to offer insight into several trends we see coming to light. The industry will be preparing for 5G, and we’ll see the issue of net neutrality come to the forefront as several governments around the world welcome new leaders. We also envision more activity in emerging markets as even more attention is paid to rural areas. 


Cellular Networks in 2017: More of the Same in the Midst of Change

Posted by Ben Cardwell on January 9, 2017

2017-wirelessThe trends that defined the wireless network industry in 2016 are all still in play in 2017. While that might sound like more of the same, it can also be thought of as a prelude to 5G. Now is the time when mobile network operators (MNOs) are laying the groundwork for the future while monetizing and managing their investments from the past. The trends of densification, virtualization and optimization are how they will do so.

Densification

The general shift in the wireless industry is from cell towers to street poles, from large-sized structures to miniaturized equipment. Densification means adding more sites where users congregate—on city streets and inside large buildings. Metro cell deployments continue to attract a lot of attention. The question is when will there be a major uptick. I expect to see a significant increase for these kinds of deployments in 2017.


Setting the Standards for Connected and Efficient Buildings

Posted by Richard Mei on January 6, 2017

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

In the telecom, intelligent building and cabling industries, standards development organizations demonstrate considerable cooperation by providing viable solutions for growing communication needs. There are always numerous new and updated standards in development.  For example, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recently published the first international standard for Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM).

CommScope is very active in standards organizations and currently has employees chairing committees, providing technical expertise and helping progress standards to successful publication and deployment. Several CommScope associates have even been recognized with awards for their service to the IEC, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). It is important for our customers that we stay on the cutting-edge of network technology evolution.

A Look Back at 2016: The Future of Multimode Has a Name – OM5

Posted by Matias Peluffo on December 30, 2016

New_WBMMF_yellowEditor’s Note: As we say good-bye to 2016, we look back at some of our most shared blogs of the year. We covered a wide range of network infrastructure topics, and we hope you enjoy revisiting some of these popular posts. This blog first appeared on October 13, 2016. 

A hot-off-the presses update to my blog from May regarding standards for the new WideBand Multimode Fiber (WBMMF) specifications:

In an international standards ballot that closed on October 5, OM5 was chosen by an overwhelming majority of nations as the official designation for cabling containing WideBand Multimode Fiber in the upcoming 3rd edition of the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission standards, or ISO/IEC 11801. This is an important milestone in standards progress and for market acceptance of this new and revolutionary fiber cabling performance category. It extends the benefits of multimode fiber within connected and efficient buildings and within data centers worldwide.


A Look Back at 2016: Data Center of the Future - Two outages that changed the course of history (Part 2)

Posted by Jennifer Sweeper on December 29, 2016

Data Center_FutureEditor’s Note: As we say good-bye to 2016, we look back at some of our most shared blogs of the year. We covered a wide range of network infrastructure topics, and we hope you enjoy revisiting some of these popular posts. This blog appeared on August 1, 2016, as a second post about the data center of the future (see Part One). It is a post by guest blogger Jennifer Sweeper, partner marketing manager at Digital Realty. The opinions and comments provided in this guest post, as with all posts to CommScope Blogs, are that of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of CommScope.

When you operate a global internet enterprise company, the last thing you need is a data center outage. The very last thing you need is two outages in just three months. That’s exactly what happened to the internet company’s data center provider that wasn’t equipped for a big data surge.

A 2013 Gartner study says big data is expected to grow 800 percent in the next few years, data centers like these need to be ready. And many are not. We have connected lifestyles, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will only get bigger than it is now.


A Look Back at 2016: How to Power Today’s Internet of Things

There is great excitement about the capabilities of a connected world delivering higher operational performance, increased efficiencies and better overall user experience with the Internet of Things (IoT). Gartner projects there will be almost 21 billion IoT devices in use by 2020. But the IoT is more than a vision for the future; it is here today, delivering on its promise.
