Impressive would be an understatement when describing Bill
Gates’ home. Paintings on the walls can
be changed with a click of a button.
Every guest is given a unique pin that interacts with a sensor to
maintain temperature, music and lighting in the house wherever they are. The
40-year-old Maple tree in the driveway is monitored by a computer, ensuring
water is automatically pumped into it, according to makaan.com.
We may all aspire to visit the
world's largest smart home but in the meantime
our smartphones are giving us a pretty cool experience at the touch of our
fingertips. I don’t have to remember to
lock my doors, switch off the lights or turn on the stereo when arriving home
from work. Our lives are a little bit
better with just the click of a button.
CLICK TO TWEET: Hexagon's Uday Sakunala explains how they are helping customers shape smart changes in their data centers.
leave our smart homes, many of us step into a smart city made up of high
definition cameras, street lights with energy efficient LED, and thousands of
sensors which monitor the traffic, air condition, parking, waste management,
city applications require increased speed, lower latency and zero bottlenecks,
putting greater stress on bandwidth requirements. As a result, data center managers
must not only ensure there’s a strong network backbone, but that they’re taking
a smart approach to powering connectivity.
Helping Customers Shape Smart Change
business needs evolve, data centers are expected to perform and meet customer demands.
At Hexagon Capability Center India (HCCI), we are focused on helping customers
plan for the convergence of real and digital worlds. This includes solutions which integrate
sensors, software, domain knowledge and customer workflows into intelligent
information ecosystems that deliver actionable information. Machines
can process information nearly as fast as they receive it. Humans can’t. That’s
why HCCI has invested in data centers capable of computing, analyzing and
processing information in real time.
Data centers are
gearing up to harness IoT tech. To support digital
transformation and data driven businesses which will utilize more bandwidth,
HCCI collaborated with CommScope to identify key technologies which would add
capacity to increased bandwidth requirements while providing a foundation for
future expansion. The solutions include fiber connectivity that provides
the bandwidth and scalability the data center may need when network demands
increase in addition to automated
infrastructure management which offers greater visibility into how the network
connects to devices.
Enterprises need to
ensure the network is equipped to power new technologies which are evolving
faster than ever. HCCI believes the first step is
to shape smart change in the data center.
