Cloud Computing, IT Infrastructure, and the Need for Greater Security

As more companies turn to the cloud for data storage, security concerns are rising. The current solution for protecting IT infrastructure from data breaches and network failures is a combination of software and hardware defenses. The current major trend in the evolution of IT infrastructure is the widespread migration of computing and storage resources from Read More >>

Talk to Your House: The Roadmap for the Smart Home

Home automation technology begins with the human voice and extends to the Internet of Things (IoT) thanks to smaller, faster, smarter connectivity products. In the past few years, certain slow-to-evolve consumer technologies have really started to work. One such technology is voice recognition. Although speech analysis, acoustic transcription, and voice recognition technologies have been around Read More >>

Seven Design Tips for Smart Appliances

Smart appliances create new challenges for device designers, who must integrate additional components and manage power, data transfer, size, and heat considerations in compact, unobtrusive packages that satisfy consumer demands. Consumers who value the improved control, energy efficiency, reliability, and convenience of smart home devices are driving the trend toward high-end connected appliances that can Read More >>

Ethernet Cable for the Internet of Things

Ethernet is the leading network protocol in LAN applications. Today, it’s gaining ground in transportation, automotive, and industrial applications, thanks to new cabling strategies. In the early 1980s, at the start of the Ethernet era, coaxial cabling dominated and cheap yellow Ethernet cable became ubiquitous. In the 1990s, the focus shifted to cabling solutions based Read More >>

Smaller, Faster, Smarter: Miniature Industrial Connectors

Connectors are competing for space in today’s automated industrial processes. A next-generation miniature industrial connector format balances space constraints with data performance. Meet the iX Industrial. At the 2018 Hannover Fair, HARTING identified miniaturization as one of six trends defining the evolution of integrated industrial processes. The others are digitization, integration, e-mobility, modularization, and customization. Read More >>

Fiber Optic Advances Push the Bandwidth Envelope in Datacom

Network data communications has evolved rapidly from “high-speed” gigabit Ethernet LANs to the integration of cloud-based information technology and data streams demanding terabytes of data. Engineers at TE Connectivity discuss how fiber optic advances push the bandwidth envelope in datacom and drive the next level of capabilities. Network data communications has evolved rapidly from “high-speed” gigabit Read More >>

Server Equipment Paradigm Shift Ahead?

December 2013 – The server market has become a $50 billion segment of the computer industry, about the same size as the world connector market. With the advent of cloud storage and “Big Data,” many expect the server market to continue to grow, and to grow substantially. That could be a false assumption.
