More Bandwidth Is Required… Really?

Today, traffic is dominated by latency and bandwidth sensitive applications such as VR, AR, gaming, and video. With growing mobility of user applications and pressure to keep costs down, networks are becoming more dynamic under software control with functional virtualization, while the actual networking equipment is being disaggregated. In this new paradigm, datacenter interconnections continue to grow on average in excess of 27% CAGR, yet datacenters still operate below capacity, with typical 10G servers operating at around ~25-35% of peak efficiency.

So, is it all about more speed and larger pipes to increase bandwidth? Titan will discuss new intelligent software enabled optics techniques and business models such as Operations-as-a-Service, that not only help operators optimize their WAN based fiber inter-connections, but also provide precious OPEX and CAPEX savings in excess of 15-25% (per end) link termination.

SkyBridge Tools

Description - To Be Announced

Using Fiber Connected, Distributed Data Centers as Distributed Energy Resources

Youbicwitus is a unique cloud hosting/energy services provider specializing in fiber connected, modular, physically distributed data center facilities hosted by clients of the energy services. Each data center will provide low latency access to cloud content while at the same time leverage the installation to compliment smart-building, peak shaving and demand response energy services for those hosting a data center.

Next Generation Optical Sensors: Measuring The Future

The next generation “Smart” distribution power grid requires reliable, precise, and accurate measurement of voltage and current. How “smart” the grid is depends on how quickly and reliably real-time line information is accurately and continuously monitoring load and power quality.

Next optical generation "smart sensors" provide not only high accuracy (< ± 0.5%), but near unlimited harmonic bandwidth and unsaturated transient measurement of both voltage and current. This enables power utilities to accurately deliver voltages which reduces consumption, improves power quality and reduces service loads on equipment. Not only is there a net savings for energy providers and consumers, this results in significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
