The High Impact & Potential of Cold Chain Monitoring
With new medicines requiring specific environments and global distribution of food, cold chain monitoring can impact public health and safety.
What’s Shaping the Phone of the Future?
Mobile computing device usage has come a long way since the first Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) were introduced by PSION back in 1980. Since the introduction of touchscreen phones, they have become ubiquitous and have become the go-to standard for productivity and anytime/anywhere access to the people we love and the jobs we do. In 2020, 6 billion smartphones were in use around the world, meaning 78% of the global population owned one. And smartphone adoption is still growing, with the device count expected to rise to over 7 billion devices by 2024. These pocket supercomputers are so integral to modern life – and the momentum will most certainly continue with yet more technological advancements grounded in driving incremental use and value. So, what does the future hold?
Cracking the Code of Future Mobile Devices
Tomorrow’s market disruptors and technology codebreakers are working hard to decipher what mobile devices will look like in the future and how they’ll perform differently than today’s counterparts. Will they be bigger, smaller, lighter, handheld, worn or implanted? Which big-bet innovations will yield the biggest payoffs? And which barriers will take the longest to remove?
Exploring the Key Attributes of Modern Energy-Efficient Data Centers
Although often hidden from view, there can be no debate that our reliance on data centers is spiraling. In their report ‘Data Age 2025’, analyst firm IDC forecasts that within four years, society will generate 175 zettabytes (ZBytes) of data each year – somewhere between two and three times the current rate. The report goes on to suggest that there will be 6 billion connected users by that time, each of whom will interact with a data center almost 5,000 times per day – triple today’s rate and 10 times what it was in 2015.
‘Connection-First’ Design Crucial for Today’s Complex Data Centers
Taking a step back to look at data centers holistically, and not just from the standpoint of the ‘tech’ involved, is vital to understanding how and why connectivity is essential. The big picture perspective also spotlights the need for connectivity to play into the design considerations from the point of data center design inception. With the expectations for reliable, consistent delivery of rapid speed and high performance for the largest hyperscalers in the world, it’s more critical than ever to explore the role connectivity plays as the road by which all connections are made and power travels.
