  • Hyperscale Data Centers: Infrastructure Changes and Challenges Hyperscale Data Centers: Infrastructure Changes and Challenges TIA, Corning Recorded: Sep 16 2016 61 mins
    Smart cities, connected home, eHealth, entertainment (video, virtual and augmented reality), OTT content, as well as the broader swath of connected communications across consumer, enterprise and government called the Internet of Things (IoT), are creating unprecedented data loads, complexity and compute-intensive applications. Data centers of yore cannot match the data management and crunching demands which currently exist and continually grow. New converged infrastructure designs and redesigned long-haul and cloud data center interconnects which also lower power losses and have the ability to scale on demand are the focus of data center builds and upgrades.

    This webcast will focus on what the market is demanding, and cabling solutions and software solutions that address the evolving requirements of hyperscale data centers.

  • Layer 1: Challenging the Limits of Fiber Optic Cabling & Connectivity Layer 1: Challenging the Limits of Fiber Optic Cabling & Connectivity Mike Connaughton, Berk-Tek Recorded: Aug 25 2016 62 mins
    Data communication speeds are constantly increasing to keep up with the demand in bandwidth. Ethernet speeds of 100 Gb/s are being deployed and 400 Gb/s or more are being considered. As the speeds increase, the reach of multimode fiber gets shorter. One way to mitigate the shrinking distance is to the use the highest bandwidth fiber. What if we tell you that the transceivers can help mitigate as well?

    Topics to be discussed include:
    - Characteristics of cable, connectivity, and transceivers and how they can maximize network reach and flexibility
    - Current trends in Ethernet and Fibre Channel and what is coming in the near future.

  • Graphene: The Next Super Material for the Communications Industry? Graphene: The Next Super Material for the Communications Industry? Limor Schafman, Director of Content Development, TIA Recorded: Aug 24 2016 60 mins
    There has been a great deal of interest in Graphene. Some would call it hype. But with its flexibility and heat conduction properties, this atom-thin layer of carbon, which has been touted as the strongest material ever measured, has enormous product and market potential for the ICT industry.

    Because graphene is conductive at nano-scale layers, it can be used for lightweight, flexible yet durable display screens, electric circuits and solar cells. It is also currently being made into inks and 3D printable materials. Imagine what this can mean for the design of communications devices, or circuitry, or batteries. Imagine the impact on wearables, the design and development of IoT sensors, or large scale retail store windows. Graphene holds a great deal of promise.
    Despite the potential graphene promises, it has taken longer than expected to transform research and development into commercialized product.

    This webcast will explore both the tremendous potential harbored in those structured carbon atoms and the business reality. The focus will be on the use of the material for the ICT industry. We will also look at other use cases that may be the first steps on graphene’s path to commercial application.

    Cities around the world are transforming their increasingly congested landscapes into safer, smarter, and more sustainable environments that better serve their residents and visitors alike. These “smart cities”, are enabling a continuous exchange of information between devices, infrastructure, networks and people, creating immense possibilities for the broader Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and the communications industry.

    Here in the U.S., recent partnerships between the Federal government and private industry are helping to advance smart city solutions and deployments including the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge and the recently announced White House Advanced Wireless Research Initiative. We’re just scratching the surface of the innovations to come.

    But what truly makes a city smart? What applications and solutions are currently being deployed and what more will be developed? What types of critical network infrastructure needs to exist in order to enable a more connected society? What role will fiber, sensors, LPWANs, densified small cells and DAS, massive MIMO, and other solutions play as these networks deploy? How can we protect the data being transmitted around the city? What lessons have been learned thus far and are there business opportunities and models to support expectations of market growth? And how best can local governments and citizens be educated to understand the importance of smart city initiatives and potential return on investment?

    Speakers from AT&T and SAP will delve into these questions and more during the live webcast. We also welcome your questions, so get ready to bring them into the mix.
