Whether youâ€™re reading this post from your PC â€“ or in todayâ€™s interconnected world, more likely your smartphone or tablet – thereâ€™s no denying the increase in devices that we all own for business and personal use. In fact, by 2020, the number of connected devices is expected to reach 50 billion â€“ thatâ€™s six devices for every person on earth.
But itâ€™s not just devices that consumers and professionals are using regularly. There’s a constant uptick in content consumption that’s also driving traffic. To look at it another way: By 2015, one million minutes of video content will cross the network every second while the number of devices connected to IP networks will be twice the global population.
As such, itâ€™s not much of a jump to see that as providers upgrade their networks to accelerate bandwidth and literally (and figuratively) keep pace with market trends, new technology solutions will be needed to balance the power consumption and costs for energy efficient Ethernet.
Earlier this week, Broadcom announced two new 10GBASE-T PHYs (physical layer transceivers) to our portfolio of networking solutions, which extends energy efficient Ethernet (EEE) at all three operating speeds (1GbE, 10GbE and 100M) while reducing footprint, cost and power consumption for an overall lower operating power by more than 50 percent.
This is the first of many exciting announcements leading up to next month’s Interop conference in Las Vegas, where Broadcom will be exhibiting and introducing new technologies for the data center, green IT, enterprise.Â The annual technology show, now in its 27th year, is focused on industry trends such as cloud computing, virtualization, security, mobility and data center advances.
We’ll be blogging, posting videos, live tweeting and more. Follow us on Facebook , Twitter or Google Plus for regular updates and, of course, the Broadcom Connected blog. To follow along with full conference updates, follow the #interop Twitter hashtag.
