Scott McMorrow is speaking at the Impact Conference (Boards, Chips and Packaging: Designing To Maximize Benefits) on Tuesday, October 13th. He and a panel of experts are discussing Next Generation High Speed Data Transfer Rates.
Quick Overview Of The Discussion
The need for more bandwidth is continuing to drive the Internet infrastructure. Rapid growth of server, network and internet traffic is fueling the need for higher data rates. Key contributors to data demand include Internet consumer applications, cloud-based computing and storage, virtual servers, advances in scientific and financial computing and the Internet of Things. While fiber optic cables are capable of delivering data rates into terabits/sec, the main bottleneck continues to be the last critical mile solution. Deployment of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) and the emerging 60 GHz point-to-point microwave links, which enable Gb/s rates to the home, are seen as viable last mile solutions. The panel will be comprised of a Lee Ritchey, Speeding Edge; Scott McMorrow, Samtec; Geoffrey Hazelett, Polar Instruments; Daniel DeAraujo, Mentor Graphics; and a representative from Altera. Brian Fuller, ARM, will moderate this panel.
