A data center is a centralized repository that houses a network of computer servers generally used by companies for the remote storage, running, or distribution of huge amounts of data. A data center can range from a room, a house or a massive warehouse building set up with data communications connections, security devices, environmental controls and backup power supplies. The visual featured on this post illustrates the main components of data center infrastructure. Their structural parts are larger and more robust to be able to sustain explosives and natural disasters.

Bluebird Network Announces Network Expansion into SubTropolis Technology Center in Hunt Midwest’s Kansas City Cave Facility

Bluebird Network | November 23, 2021

Bluebird Network, a communications infrastructure provider with 10,000 route miles of fiber and operator of two data centers, now supports carrier-grade fiber internet, cloud access and data services to the SubTropolis Technology Center (STC) in Kansas City, Missouri. Bluebird recently established a point of presence in the Hunt Midwest facility to support data-hungry businesses via a partnership with LightEdge Solutions. Continuing to expand their network and communications infrastructure delivery, this development furthers Bluebird’s ability to empower local businesses. “The digital world spins faster each day and Bluebird is focused on giving businesses the tools and technology to keep up,When an operation has inconsistent internet or can’t evaluate their business in real time, production slows and money is lost. We’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen.” Trent Anderson, Chief Revenue Officer of Bluebird Network It’s no secret applications and data housed in the cloud is quickly becoming the way of the future. “Cloud services are increasingly being pushed closer to the edge,” said Mike McHenry, LightEdge VP of Cloud and Product Architecture. “Having partners like Bluebird that can help our customers with their connectivity needs is a critical component to delivering our services to enterprise customers.” All new and existing tenants within the SubTropolis can now leverage Bluebird’s world-class fiber. Bluebird also boasts some of the fastest circuit turn-up times in the industry, made even easier by existing infrastructure within the cave. This build brings a powerful and diverse fiber connection to the Hunt Midwest Meet-Me-Room – an added benefit for carriers and businesses colocating in the LightEdge data center inside the SubTropolis. “We’ve been pursuing Bluebird for years to connect in here,” said Mike Bell, Senior VP of Hunt Midwest Real Estate Development. “It’s always good to have another carrier in STC allowing people to choose our location and it’s a testament to Bluebird’s network. It’s a win-win for both sides.” One other benefit of Bluebird building into the SubTropolis is the ability to connect LightEdge customers to other data centers. Referencing the Bluebird Underground Data Center in Springfield, Missouri, Bell said, “Having two underground locations with a fiber provider, how much safer can you be?” Bluebird’s Underground Data Center is a facility built 85-feet below ground to N+1 standards at all levels of critical infrastructure. Extending an extra level of redundancy to their existing data center services, the company also owns and operates the Bluebird Quad Cities Data Center in Bettendorf, IA.

Next Generation Efforts in Wireless Communications Move Forward

5G Americas | November 25, 2021

While there is still a lot of innovation ahead for 5G, many projects identified as “Next G” and “6G” are already underway globally with significant leadership from the Americas. Today, 5G Americas, the voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas announced the publication of a new white paper entitled Mobile Communications Towards 2030, which details how the industry will continue to build and evolve wireless communications networks for consumers and enterprises beyond what we know as 5G today. Chris Pearson, President of 5G Americas, said, “While 5G is at the beginning of a long era of innovation with a full road map of exciting enhancements, the work to research and study the next generation of possibilities is already underway. It is imperative that the Americas region build and maintain leadership, gathering input from wireless operators and vendors, as well as academia, other vertical industries, and the government.” Emerging next generation wireless communications use cases are still several years away from being formulated but include some thrilling opportunities. Early use cases may include multi-sensory telepresence and immersion via extended reality (XR), as well as use of digital twins in Industry 4.0’s cyber-physical systems. Additional use cases may include holographic teleportation, tactile and haptic communications, and many more. Wireless impacts on vertical industries may include opportunities in precision crops and livestock, biosensor monitoring in health care, advanced driver assist and autonomous driving for transportation systems, first responder systems that allow rapid data collection from sensors and real-time situational awareness, and government and defense systems utilizing ubiquitous connectivity. Additionally, the white paper provides insight into the vision and requirements necessary for next generation wireless networks to come to life. Emerging applications may require very high data rates into the Tbps range for digital twins and tactile feedback, extremely wide coverage for rural or defense needs, and reliability up to “seven nines” for intense remote control and digital twin requirements. Mobile Communications Towards 2030 examines the following areas: Activities in North America in context of next generation wireless work Review of global activities (China, Japan, Europe, Korea, Taiwan & India) Use Cases (multi-sensory telepresence and immersion, Industry 4.0, digital twins, and advances in different vertical industries) Technology requirements and network evolution Technology enablers and trends North American leadership Brian Daly, Assistant Vice President, Standards & Industry Alliances, AT&T and technical work group co-leader on the paper, commented, “While 5G is still early in its lifecycle and is being evolved and enhanced through upcoming 3GPP releases while worldwide deployment continues, we recognize the need to begin to promote early commitment to creating a 5G to Next G marketplace and to ensure North America continues to lead in technology development. The groundwork for the next exciting chapter of wireless revolution is beginning as academia and US-based alliances are looking at advancing technology, along with the US government focused in forging fruitful partnerships with private sector.” Swaminathan “Swami” Arunachalam, Senior Director, 6G Research and Industry Alliances, North America, Nokia, and 5G Americas group co-leader, further added, “It is early in the cycle for 6G research. Technologies relevant in the 6G era like network disaggregation and programmability across the end-to-end system are also planned to be studied and deployed in the context of 5G-Advanced. These are important stepping stones towards the 6G era which will comprise of new and additional technologies such as THz radio technologies, communication and sensing capabilities, sub-networks."
