NAB Takeaways – Zooming in on 4K

NAB Takeaways – Zooming in on 4K

The camera lenses at NABShow this year were squarely focused on everything 4K. I’ll bet that even a Las Vegas bookmaker would not have stuck his neck out with more then even odds on that prediction. Yes 4K continued to fuel the conversations after CES and this annual get-together of the world’s broadcasting ecosystem at the Las Vegas Convention Center was no exception -with new products being announced for capture and display and...

At Interop 2014 in Las Vegas last week it was interesting to see the numbers presented during IDC’s annual Interop breakfast meeting, showing the analyst’s latest networking market forecasts. 10GbE and 40GbE datacenter port shipments are expected to reach 20 million ports in 2014 and account for 90% of all datacenter Ethernet switch spend, totally eclipsing 100MbE and Gigabit Ethernet shipments.

Breaking the Terabit per Second Barrier!

Borderless enterprise, secure data center and cloud computing applications are all pushing for huge increases in I/O density and higher data throughput per rack unit. The need for more I/O and more processing per packet basically means you need the highest performance CPUs with as much offload and acceleration as you can give them.
