5G is about to hit the world economy like a freight train. Most observers fully expect that by mid-decade, we will have an entirely new digital ecosystem driving new forms of communication, new markets and sales channels, and entirely new levels of wealth.

But 5G is not merely the next step in the evolution of wireless networking. It represents a distinct break from the past in many crucial ways, starting with the need to maintain strict time synchronization across multiple points on any given data chain ...

In last month’s column, “Artificial intelligence: I think therefore I am?,” I felt I only scratched the surface of what we understand to be artificial intelligence (AI) and, in this month’s post, I want to expand my thoughts a little further.

So, last month, I suggested that what we understand today as “AI” is nothing more than clever programming and smart technology and, I dare say, that’s largely true, despite others suggesting otherwise. We don’t have thinking machines, since software engineers have programmed our technology to behave in a pre-determined manner, along with predefined behaviors and outcomes ...

As networks evolve and grow, many customers are looking to gain key insight and actionable events from what they learn. Currently, the market is mostly using telemetry data and basic machine learning (ML) to analyze that data. Leading edge cloud providers have gone a step further and are using artificial intelligence (AI) to predict better and adapt networks. The advantage is clear; AI allows networks to operate more efficiently and with higher utilization. I expect to see AI rapidly moving into enterprise and service provider (SP) networks as they adopt AI to enhance their networks and the user experience ...

The data center market is about to go through a significant upgrade cycle in technology that has implications for how data center buildout designs evolve. Several new technologies are all going to hit the market at the same time. The industry is moving towards 7nm technology across most of the semiconductor space. At the same time, chiplets are moving front and center as an important building block. 112Gbit/s SerDes, custom-built artificial intelligence (AI) chips, and the adoption of PCI Gen4 are about to be adopted ...
