Data Center Bridging Plugfest

|

In May 2010, the Ethernet Alliance sponsored an interoperability event where 14 vendors including DCB switch, converged network adapter, simulation/monitor, and cable providers came together at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL) for the second closed door interoperability test event, also known as a “plugfest”. The purpose for this event was to test the interoperability of several Data Center Bridging (DCB) technologies, which are a collection of various standards defined by IEEE 802.1™. The purpose of these extensions is to enhance the capabilities of Ethernet and is a part of the many efforts of the Ethernet Alliance Data Center Bridging subcommittee.

5G Challenges: Exploring the Biggest Challenges for 5G Deployment

Article | March 31, 2020

5G promises exciting advances for communications service providers (CSPs), but the 5G rollout is going to be challenging. CSPs must rapidly build out dense, low-latency edge networks in ways that are affordable, secure, and easily maintainable. CSPs are looking toward open-source, container-based network infrastructures that meet the 5G latency, reliability, and flexibility requirements while being inexpensive to deploy and maintain.

Did 5G cause coronavirus? Four reasons why ‘dangerous’ conspiracy theory is completely wrong

Article | March 31, 2020

5G is a little higher at 3.4GHz to 3.6GHz, but that's tiny when you consider that microwaves go up to 300GHz. And visible light comes in at a range of around 430THz to 770THz. That's more than a thousand times higher than the maximum microwave – and 100,000 higher than 5G. Dangerous radiation, like UV rays, X-rays and gamma rays are also far higher up the spectrum still. Early theories suggested 5G could lead to cancer – and now crackpots have linked it to coronavirus too. But it's simply impossible for 5G to cause any of these problems. Radiation damages cells by breaking them apart, but 5G microwaves simply lack the power to do this. 5G is a low-frequency radiation, far below infrared and visible light. In fact, it's essential that 5G is low-frequency, because higher frequencies are less useful at delivering mobile signals over large areas. We know that this level of radiation is safe, because otherwise the visible light from our televisions would have killed us a long time ago.

GSMA Mobile Economy 2021: 5G has momentum, 4G has peaked, global mobile subscriber growth slowing

Article | March 31, 2020

he launch of commercial 5G services in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa over the last year means that 5G technology is now available in every region of the world. The pandemic has had little impact on 5G momentum; in some instances, it has even resulted in operators speeding up their network rollouts, with governments and operators looking to boost capacity at a time of increased demand. By the end of 2025, 5G will account for just over a fifth of total mobile connections and more than two in five people around the world will live within reach of a 5G network. In leading 5G markets, such as China, South Korea and the U.S.

Trump's 'Secure 5G & Beyond Act' Explained: What It Actually Means

Article | March 31, 2020

The Trump White House has signed the "Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020," paving the way for the creation of a plan to secure 5G networks and protect related innovations. With 5G devices rolling out in the US market, and providers expanding their 5G coverage, the future of mobile tech is getting closer, and the U.S. government is beginning to look more seriously at how it can best be protected. The path to 5G-enabled devices and compatible services in the United States began opening up in 2019, with major mobile companies introducing a handful of 5G-enabled phones and limited service options. With more devices built to capitalize on 5G on the horizon - and demand for 5G access from other industries on the rise - the signing of the Act gives US lawmakers a path toward legislation to help protect US businesses, citizens, and strategic allies.
