The latest generation of Wi-Fi is Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax), which launched in the fall of 2019 and is now inching into the commercial market at a steady pace. In addition, we will soon be seeing Wi-Fi 6E, the first amendment of IEEE 802.11ax to support the state-of-the-art 6 GHz radio spectrum band. Even with all this new technology in the works, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Li-Fi: Internet at the Speed of Light
The demand for mobile communication is snowballing at a remarkable rate. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, 2017-2022,1 mobile data traffic is forecasted to increase to 77 exabytes per month by 2022. This figure is seven times greater than 2017 statistics.
This rapid growth has led to “Spectrum
With the arrival of wireless technology, Power over Ethernet (PoE) may seem to be outdated technology.
Power over Ethernet is crucial for powering devices such as VoIP phones, security cameras, and wireless access points over the same UTP cable used for data.
In the early days, PoE technology was a sort of mixed bag of home-brewed proprietary methods. However, in the last ten years, PoE technology
Building out an IT network or network expansion can be as fast or as gradual as your business requires. These days, network expansion is not an “if” but “when” proposition. Security Today estimates an average of 127 devices1 connect to the Internet every second. This ever-increasing rate of connectivity means that the infrastructure needed to support these technologies must be
Is your LED lighting system vulnerable to cyber intruders? One of the hottest issues right now regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) is security. As more things become connected, new levels of exposure are discovered.
Smart lighting is a good example. Other terms for “smart” might be connected, IoT, Industrial Control System, and Operational Technology (OT), all of which are similar, although
“IoT is already well established and still set to grow, with more than 41 billion IoT devices in use by 2027. What’s more, Gartner predicts that more than 80 percent of enterprise IoT projects will include an AI component by 2022.”

A team of NASA scientists has turned to Ethernet to capture clear video footage on Mars. The use of a camera and a laser mounted on the front bumper of an autonomous or semi-autonomous planetary rover called the K-REX2 has solved image quality in airless environments. Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology connecting the camera and laser to sensors, takes advantage of power and data delivery capability over a single cable to run these low-powered smart devices (PD) in space.
The COVID pandemic lockdown had a substantial impact on the Ethernet market in the first quarter of 2020. Because people weren’t in the workplace, things like switch replacements were put on hold. It wasn’t the only factor, though, as things had already begun to slow somewhat toward the end of 2019. One very probable reason
