Wi-Fi is heavily ingrained in all aspect of our lives, with the wireless Access Point (AP) as the core component that allows access to a Wi-Fi network. You may have heard of Fit and Fat APs, but what about cloud APs? Here, we’ll introduce these different APs, their working modes, and the campus wireless LANs that they enable.
Data center interconnect (DCI) solutions have taken the optical transport market by storm, driven by webscale and Internet content providers' bandwidth demands. As customer demands on DCI solutions evolve, the design of these compact modular systems needs to evolve as well.
Automobiles have been around for more than a century. In the early days, it took 728 man-hours to assemble just one automobile, making it impossible to meet the market demand. After Ford invented the assembly line, that time was shortened to a mere 90 minutes. With such improved efficiency, the go-to-market (GTM) time of automobiles was greatly shortened and the assembly cost was reduced, making it possible for almost every home to have an automobile.
Cloud services are a shared economy in the IT industry, while data centers are the carriers of these services. Due to limited land resources and equipment room space, data centers are increasingly deployed in a distributed manner, requiring WDM technology to connect them to provide unified services.
Wi-Fi devices for a company, shopping mall, or hotel seem to work the same as home Wi-Fi. However, they differ in significant ways, and the differences are important to understand when setting up enterprise Wi-Fi networks.
