Standards and Trends Pushing Need for DCIM

Posted by James Sherrin on November 16, 2016
iTRACS DCIM(1)

Mark Twain once wrote “The report of my death was an exaggeration” (more commonly quoted as “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”) and the same could be said for data center infrastructure management (DCIM) today. Although the market forecasts for DCIM vary greatly depending on which research firm report you read, the fact remains that the data center industry is undergoing a change as new entrants, new standards and new technologies are introduced. Let’s take a look at these and their impact to understand the continued need for DCIM.

First, there are new entrants in the data center market that are setting the industry up for possible disruption. Even as little as ten years ago, data centers were mainly owned and operated by traditional service providers and large enterprises. As companies like Amazon, Google and Facebook expanded their business models, they began to invest in their own data centers and many companies around the world followed their lead. But building your own data centers brings challenges, including the ability to remotely manage and monitor the infrastructure, assets and workflows. This issue is compounded as organizations have multiple data centers in various locations. For example, the State Department made public that they are moving from leased to modular data centers as “part of the ongoing government-wide push to consolidate data centers and overhaul the way the federal government procures applications and IT infrastructure to support them.” Their new data centers will be on government property in various locations throughout the United States.


The Engine that Empowers the CALA Enterprise Business

CALA_PartnerPRO_event

Top CommScope Partners and key distributors from around the CALA region attended the annual Partner Challenge event, which took place in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

A lot of memories came to my mind after almost 10 years hosting the Partner Challenge summit for CALA. Each year there was one thing that happened to make that year memorable. This year it was the windy weather (60MPH/100KM) on our last day which was so bad that the local airport and local pier had to close. What we originally thought would be a nightmare, in my opinion ended up being one of the biggest memories. That extra night enabled each group the chance to work without a set program, doing what each attendant know well -- partnership.

CommScope Definitions: What Is Fiber Network Convergence?

Posted by Wes Oxlee on November 10, 2016

This blog post is part of a series called “CommScope Definitions,” in which we explain common terms in communications network infrastructure.

Fiber network convergence refers to the combination of multiple services within a single access network. In other words, a single pipe is used to deliver all or multiple forms of communication services. For example, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks have an extensive footprint that is perfect for supporting fast-growing mobile applications such as distributed antenna system (DAS), small cell and Wi-Fi backhaul and/or Centralized-RAN front-haul. Through fiber network convergence, a service provider could deliver a wider range of services, adopt new business models, offer innovative services and enter new markets.

I Met the Future And It Said "Hello" To Me!

Posted by Ispran Kandasamy, Ph.D. on November 8, 2016

The author William Gibson once famously said,"The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed."  After recently visiting GITEX Technology Week 2016, I came away feeling that Gibson is absolutely correct. Here the ‘future’ was palpable and concentrated in GITEX like no other place I had visited in the recent past.

The primary objective of my Dubai visit was to exchange ideas related to smart buildings, venues and cities with our customers.  However, it was hard not to feel part of something bigger – nearly 150,000 tech leaders, investors, entrepreneurs, government officials, amongst many other first timers, had come to the region’s largest technology conference to re-imagine the future of reality.

This was my first visit and I had initially no idea what to expect. After 2 days of wandering around the Dubai World Trade Center, there was an overwhelming sense of excitement.  The conference buzz around smart cities, artificial intelligence/augmented reality (AI/AR) and drones really brought the future to life.
