CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
This blog post is part of our 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.
Who hasn’t heard of the Internet of Things (IoT)? If you aren’t sure what it is, then I suggest reading my colleague, Mike Wolfe’s, terrific CommScope Definition blog explaining this technology.
IoT continues to evolve; however, it will likely involve different network requirements based on different applications because of increased bandwidth consumption. An emerging market for mobile operators is Africa. To support the continent’s bandwidth demands, mobile networks require a fixed-line fiber network.
In my latest vlog, I discuss how the penetration of smartphones in Africa is driving people to consume more bandwidth, requiring African operators to deploy more fiber in their networks.
