You might be thinking that the only way to speed up hybrid fiber-wireless networks is to expand the capacity of the wireless link. It turns out that’s just one option. A consortium of innovative thinkers from academia, equipment, and service providers has joined to eliminate another speed throttling part of the network, the termination unit or mux/demux. In January 2017, the IPHOBAC-NG consortium delivered optical 2.5 Gbit/s GPON over millimeter wave wireless without using any termination or mux/demux units between the fiber and wireless networks. They did this by developing photonic to millimeter-wave converter, which speeds up the network, simplifies networking, and lowers costs by eliminating the termination units.

Last month, IHS Markit released a white paper titled Caught On Tape – Now Keep It Secure, which discusses the benefits and best practices of LTO technology in the Digital Video Surveillance (DVS) industry. The white paper draws your attention to three key market trends; a greater number of cameras shipped and used worldwide, higher video recording specifications and official requirements for data to be kept for longer. But what does LTO tape and LTFS offer the video surveillance industry, which is facing demands for increased need for storage? When used in a multi-tiered storage solution, an LTO tape library can be implemented as a cost-effective, long-term, high-capacity storage tier. With LTO technology, users do not have to compromise on video quality or retention time, allowing organizations to manage their storage system and stay within their budgets.
