CommScope view: digitized data center transformation in 2019

With 4.5 billion population ratio to achieve network interconnection rising [1], the Asia-Pacific region has become the world’s fastest growing data center market. Analysts said the region is expected to become the world’s largest data center market in 2020, over the next four years will be more than two-thirds of the new data center off the site China and India [2]. The use of capacity on demand “hosting (co-location)” mode inspired building boom of the data center. By then, the market size of hosting the Asia-Pacific region will reach $ 23.818 billion, of which China was $ 10.863 billion [3]. By the emerging technological advances driven by digital transformation, for the booming data center industry to shape the future. We see Boeing, Google, IBM and Uber and other global company, and Tencent and Alibaba and other large local companies have benefited from the digital process. In 2019, companies will be more emphasis on digitization and expect this to remain relevant market, so the market ahead of the competition. For this reason, the demand for digital transformation is likely to be unprecedented. In addition, 5G networks and devices will also promote the development of related technologies, data center managers must be ready for it. In 2019, CommScope believes five key emerging technology –5G wireless technology, Internet of Things (IoT), virtual / augmented reality (VR / AR), chain blocks and artificial intelligence (AI) will continue to have a significant impact on the data center . 5G wireless technology and now we are moving towards the interconnection of all things, the final link between the devices and the network connection is probably wireless. 5G wireless technology enables higher data rates and more properties transmit more data. In fact, from the sales team to delivery, maintenance and repair organizations mobile workers will use a more complex applications, which rely on faster, more reliable data transmission. From a macro level, because the Chinese are smart city-building force, bandwidth demand will continue to increase CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , and intelligent technology to meet the future needs of the city. Although widely deployed 5G may not occur in a few years, but the data center must be prepared for in advance. Data center infrastructure need to be further optimized to support higher bandwidth and more general wireless data usage. Businesses and homeowners no longer focus only on Wi-Fi, but also through the distributed antenna system (DAS) to achieve strong and sustained indoor mobile wireless services. In an outdoor environment CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , the service providers are on the fiber-optic network upgrade and expansion of the wireless data transmission back to the core network or data center to the edge, to meet the unmanned vehicle or remote require local processing of low-latency applications demand surgery. Given the increasing number of data will be processed at the network edge, similar to C-RAN (radio access network cloud or centralized radio access network) and the edge will be realized and computing technology to support wireless services 2019 5G. Things (the IoT) specifically provide support for networking applications is one embodiment of a 5G. Enterprises are deploying hundreds of millions of wired and wireless sensors, along with a large amount of raw data generated by these sensors can be converted into useful information, provide value for users. For example, to make smarter decisions, banks are taking advantage of big data and the Internet of Things will be a lot of data into insight , thereby providing a more personalized customer experience and improve efficiency. The use of smart watches and other wearable devices to carry out banking business the way will also be one of the factors driving retail banking transformation. For real-time control of the production process of other emerging industrial networking applications, the network infrastructure required to have a low and predictable latency and high reliability. 2019, data center operators will be used in autonomous systems to enhance intelligence to support the expansion of P2P communication at the edge of the network, which is 5G can be considered a new application. Meanwhile, by the data center is placed near the edge sensors and actuators things, fiber infrastructure edge data center will provide reliable low-cost transmission capacity, thereby reducing the transmission delay and transmission costs. When enhanced and virtual reality technology Augmented Reality (AR) refers to the user in real-time observation of an activity or to display relevant data through mobile phones and other devices. AR 2018 using a growing trend. For example, when a technician in the repair of the product, pick up the phone to see the diagram indicates the product and how to repair. On the other hand, virtual reality (VR) is through the use of audio-visual display equipment head, allowing users to be fully immersed in the virtual world. In fact, the Chinese government also encourages enterprises and developers to technology research VR / AR, we canWe see more and more investment for this area. Some electricity providers are taking advantage of VR / AR technology to enhance the shopping experience. For example, the innovative experience of digital beauty mirror or 3D virtual fitting room and so that consumers can see the different makeup or dressing effect within a few seconds. The reason why today’s network can support AR technology, because the data would normally be downloaded onto handheld devices. However, , VR is required to achieve real-time video over the Internet communications link, and the video content from the mobile device. If the connection is not reliable, the experience will lead to decline and even cause can not be used. In the new year, we expected to usher in a more high-speed 5G network, it can support P2P communication transmission, greatly enhancing the ability to generate data end-user devices. The block chain block chain is essentially a decentralized database and have five characteristics: 1) encoded; 2) can not be tampered with; 3) having a common mechanism; 4) verifiable; 5) can be permanently stored information. When people hear “block chain” tend to think of Bitcoin block chain technology but there are many potential uses. The technology is being used to store anything that needs a permanent, secure and verifiable records, these records can be accessed in a decentralized way to go. In the field of logistics, chain blocks were used to build trusted information, such as place of origin, production time, delivery time, location, place of arrival and the use of methods. Block chain as a shared public encryption system, distributed users can participate in the distributed billing block chain. In addition, everyone can hold data that can block chain to prevent attacks vulnerabilities. Any need or can use the books distributed things can benefit from the block chain. Given its many advantages, the block chain will be more widely adopted in 2019, which will also affect the use of the books distributed data centers. Artificial Intelligence (AI) due to the need to support a large number of computers, AI development is relatively slow. But now a different past, greatly reduce the computational cost, and improve the application edge computing thanks to artificial intelligence algorithms, so that AI can be deployed in new ways. We can already see the contribution of AI Artificial Intelligence technology on society. For example, in the medical field, some hospitals in Shanghai, China has deployed AI technology to clinical follow-up, read the terms sheet and tumor diagnosis. AI development model capable of running in large-scaleDone on a centralized cloud resources CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , the model will be downloaded directly to the edge layer after the completion. Application layer at the edge of AI in favor of local time-sensitive network environments. For example, AI can be analyzed and the edge of the local control process, then the feedback to the cloud to higher layers to improve the model. Artificial Intelligence in 2019 in response to the continued rapid development of enterprises will use high-speed, low-latency network and high-performance computing edge. By using AI techniques between local and centralized resource enables centralized power cloud combined with the flexibility and performance of the AI ​​edges. Everything related to the performance of the network infrastructure now, various techniques discussed above are real and mature. With the advantage of gradually emerging, or 2019 there will be more application scenarios, and all this drives the digital transformation of the data center. To this end, data center managers need to deploy the advanced network infrastructure to improve network speed, coverage, reliability and security. Migration to higher-speed networks, extend the range of fiber optic and wireless links and the use of edge computing strategy will lay a solid foundation for the digital transition.
