Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that allows network cables to transmit data and power simultaneously using a single Ethernet cable. PoE technology has the ability to send 10/100/1000 Mbps of data, in addition to 15W, 30W,60W, and up to 90W of power to devices over Cat.5e, Cat.6, Cat.6a, Cat.7, and Cat.8 Ethernet cables within a maximum distance of 100 meters. PoE follows the IEEE 802.3af, 802.3at, and 802.3bt standards governed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and determines networking equipment interoperability requirements.

Fronthaul architecture configurations have the ability to balance the reliability, throughput, and latency demands of advanced applications on 5G networks. Depending on the type of data handling needed, fronthaul layered architecture can be distributed across the network between edge data centers and central data centers. This framework will enable wireless carriers and mobile operators to upgrade and enhance their wireless networks without being tied to legacy equipment and accelerate large-scale 5G fronthaul deployment in a scalable manner.

New applications are demanding more network and compute performance, requiring high-performance compute, acceleration, flexible storage, and networking. 5G has a shorter transmission distance capability and require higher frequency bands, which requires more 5G antenna sites. In addition to existing tower infrastructure that needs to be modernized to allow for a more distributed and adaptable network. This further drives the need for servers to be optimized for outdoor installations, deployed outdoors on utility poles or on building walls.

Wireless was first introduced as a “nice to have” feature, but by today, Wi-Fi connects well over thousands different types of devices. According to recent analyst reports, demand for connected devices is expected to unleash over billions of IoT devices generating over zettabytes (ZB) of data at the edge. As we enter into a new wireless era where everything can be connected, Wi-Fi 6 becomes a critical foundation for digital transformation and handling high-density environments.

Organizations and enterprises are increasingly requiring an edge networking platform that not only prioritize end-user experience, holistically manage their WAN and LAN for automated management, and integrate high-level security features. AIOps (artificial intelligence for IT operations) are multi-layered technology platforms that automate and enhance IT operations through analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence – can handle these digital transformation issues. 

Network operators have adopted network element management systems (NEMS) and network management systems (NMS) to ensure streamlined interoperability and information transmission across the complex multiple operating systems and telecommunication networks.

The introduction of Wi-Fi 6E represents a significant improvement over previous Wi-Fi generations and together with high-speed 5G networks will be able to meet all related data transmission needs. Both promising to deliver higher performance, lower latency and faster data rates, making them even more suitable to power video streaming, virtual reality, cloud computing, and IoT next-gen devices.
