technology is always in a state of fast development, and the continuous
advancement of technology pushes constant disruptions of industry and business
models, thereby leading to an impact on society.
In the information
technology industry, there is a fresh vitality bringing new challenges that
come along with it. CommScope is at the forefront of these changes while
constantly working to best meet our customers’ needs. In order to survive in
the market, enterprise-grade information and communications technology (ICT) providers

conducts market research in different regions around the world. During a 2014
road show in China, CommScope surveyed many users, integrators and experts and
the results showed that nearly half of the respondents were planning new IT projects
and three-fourths of the respondents plan to implement the projects in 2015. Forty-two
percent of the users chose structured cabling as the highest prioritized
project, exceeding my expectations.
modular data centers and indoor wireless solutions came in second and third
place with 16 percent and 13 percent of the demands, respectively. The survey
data also showed that, among all the respondents involved in data center and
server room cabling, 40 percent of them have already used a new product of pre-terminated
fiber optic cable.
the statistics, of the data center projects in which users are participating, 39
percent make up those with 1,000 information outlets or less, while those with
1,000 to 10,000 information outlets make up 47 percent. The projects involving
100,000 to 1,000,000 information outlets make up four percent. This means that
the ICT movement has already started for small and medium-sized enterprises and
the transition from old to new infrastructure in large and medium-sized
enterprises is gradually moving forward.
This trend aligns
with newer offerings such as CommScope’s iTRACS®
data center infrastructure management, Redwood®
intelligent sensor networks, and Data
Center on Demand™ solutions that cater to the diverse needs of users trying
to achieve the goal of flexible deployment.
