It’s no secret that a 5G infrastructure is the next big thing for wireless connectivity. Being the most disruptive technology in the last couple of years, it is here to supercharge wireless networks across the globe. The upgrade of 4G brought never-seen-before technologies such as music streaming apps like Spotify, YouTube video streaming, and ride-hailing services like Uber. In 2010, 4G made its way into the world, and with that came the ability to watch movies, listen to music, and shop from your phones. If 4G was revolutionary, then the upgrade to 5G is an overhaul. And it will be the driving force for innovative technologies like self-driving cars and robotic or remote surgery. According to Allied Market Research, the global 5G infrastructure market is projected to $58.17 billion by 2025 at a colossal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 95.8 percent from 2018 to 2025.

The critical role of Internet of Things infrastructure in connecting all of our devices

Article | February 20, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) will fundamentally change all industries, from agriculture to transportation to healthcare. In the next few decades, nearly everything in our world will become connected. But with that increased connectivity comes several concerns. For example, the IoT will generate immense amounts of data, which will put pressure on the Internet and force us to come up with more efficient ways to transmit and store this data. Perhaps chief among these concerns are the infrastructure considerations as other sectors grow thanks to the IoT. Below, we've outlined the future of IoT infrastructure management, along with some IoT infrastructure companies that are leading the way.

How to build your IT infrastructure for 5G-enabled edge computing

Article | February 26, 2020

The global 5G-enabled edge computing market is growing rapidly, fueled by major technology changes that are disrupting the traditional networking industry. By 2025, this market is expected to exceed $50 billion. 5G has the potential to deliver a new generation of services, thanks to higher data rates and ultra-low latency. To take advantage of this potential, communications service providers are looking to move data processing and compute power closer to the end user — closer to the edge. While the digital boom provides many opportunities for IT leaders, it comes with challenges: a growing number of smart devices, the need for faster processing and increased pressure on enterprise networks. To harness all this potential power, organizations need to modernize their networks to effectively consume these new services at the edge. Some key trends are empowering this shift toward the 5G-enabled edge.

Fiber Optic vs Copper Cables: How Do They Compare?

Article | March 9, 2020

Fiber Optic and Copper are pretty much the only options when it comes to networking communications cables. Today we focus on what makes them different. Let’s begin with the key characteristics of the old reliable copper phone lines — the same basic infrastructure that we’ve been using since the beginning of the 20th-century. Copper is highly conductive. This is what makes it so great for carrying the power to your home. Copper wires use the movement of electrons to carry signals by modulating a waveform at one end then demodulating it at the other end. And converting the patterns in the waveform into an analog or digital signal.
