R&M Trend Views: 2021 to Bring Further Boost for Networks

January 15, 2021

Market overview: FTTH expansion continues, 5G requires FO cabling, New horizons for LAN cabling, Single Pair Ethernet the key technology

BENGALURU, India/WETZIKON, Switzerland – January 15, 2021 – R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is expecting a further boost for the data and communication networks market in 2021. In all sectors, demand for bandwidth, new fiber optic technology and extensive, tightly meshed cabling is increasing. This is detailed by CMO Andreas Rüsseler in the R&M Blog series.

As a result of the pandemic, connectivity requirements are becoming more apparent. This particularly includes fast Internet access for private households,” says Andreas Rüsseler. When millions of people are staying at home and having to work remotely, the pressure on demand increases. The telecoms sector is investing more than ever before in Fiber to the Home (FTTH). The R&M CMO believes the investment wave will continue through 2021. Rüsseler: “Although bandwidth is now a basic need – and ought to be considered a utility just like electricity and water – there is still not enough of it.” He believes that, in the long term, only fiber optic cabling will be able to provide the necessary resources.

In the blog series, Andreas Rüsseler cites new driving forces for the expansion of fiber optic networks, 5G being one of them. The technology roll-out is just beginning. Countless 5G antennas have to be connected with fiber optic networks, distributors and data centers. The planned transmission performance can only be realized with Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA). In many places the necessary fiber optic lines are not yet available. R&M advocates cooperation among market players in order to be able to expand and use 5G and FTTx infrastructures more cost-effectively.

As is the case with 5G, the market for intelligent buildings is still in its infancy, says Andreas Rüsseler. In 2021, the trend will become more apparent.

WiFi 6, the next WLAN generation, the Internet of Things (IoT) and building automation will continue to spread with Internet protocol (All over IP). They require high-performance copper cabling to the most distant corners of the buildings. This is why there will be an increased demand for Cat. 6A and Cat. 8.1 cabling in 2021. There will be more products for building technology on the basis of the new cabling technology Single Pair Ethernet (SPE). R&M sees SPE as the key technology for intelligent buildings. Along with data and signals, building networks will have to transmit more power in the future to directly feed the countless IoT small devices. This is why Power over Ethernet (PoE) has a bright future in front of it. Andreas Rüsseler’s conclusion: “New applications are emerging for LAN cabling in the process.”

In a further blog post, R&M CMO Andreas Rüsseler discusses the trends on the data center market. Hyperscale data centers are on the rise all over the world – with unprecedented investments. The evolution to 400 Gigabit/s fiber optic networks will progress in 2021. High density fiber connectivity requires new kinds of administration and monitoring instruments. R&M expects data centers will be needing more software-aided intelligence in the future to be able to manage their networks.

Understand Behaviors to Keep Data Safe

January 12, 2021

The past two years have seen a series of big, targeted data breaches and high-profile cyberattacks against organizations, financial institutions, government services portals, and prominent people exposing personal information of hundreds of millions of people. The SolarWinds hack by supposedly Russian attackers accessed sensitive data belonging to several US government agencies and other public-service institutions such as hospitals and universities. Personal information of at least 5.2 million guests was stolen from the franchise partner’s account of Marriott International. The New Zealand stock exchange was hit by cyberattacks that halted its operations many times. These are just to name a few. The list is growing fast and fat.

 

What followed has been a rethinking of the cybersecurity paradigm, says Frank Dickson, program vice-president, cybersecurity products at IDC.

 

“Instead of more cameras on the door, let’s put a fence around the house so you can’t get to the door. Let’s reduce vulnerabilities. Let’s re-architect and fundamentally make the house more secure,” he says. This evolution has continued with the proliferation of cloud-based business solutions paired with an increase in remote work, trends accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The old perimeter, he says, has disappeared, and previous conceptions around cybersecurity should disappear, too.

 

“Our applications, data and people have all left the premises,” he says. “And so when that happens you have to fundamentally take a different approach.” Protecting data in this context against breach, that moment where it leaves the control of the enterprise, requires the ability to detect and contain threats faster.

 

Personalize security by user behaviors

In a data landscape where the local coffee shop might serve as an office and mom’s work computer can double as a third grader’s game console, where should cybersecurity efforts be focused? The answer lies in understanding how people have become the new perimeter.

 

Preventing data from escaping the enterprise-what cybersecurity experts call staying “left of breach”-becomes a matter of understanding the digital behaviors of those with access to information. It’s a mindset that says, “Wow, I need to make sure I can understand behavior as it’s unfolding, not after the fact.” To turn the spotlights on and be in position to take action based on what’s being seen. It’s a continuous risk assessment, like putting a heart monitor on and taking the pulse of everyone trusted to be on the network.

 

It’s also a framework that is proactive and adaptive in a world that demands both Automated tools help establish “normal,” not just for the organization as a whole but for the digital behaviors of individuals as well. When those behaviors are safe, security should work entirely in the background. If that changes? As the risk-score shifts upwards, it allows the tool sets to adaptively enforce policy to the individual, not on a universal, all-or-none perspective. Being as frictionless as possible to the end user is critical until friction is warranted.

 

Make security invisible

Fundamental to staying left of breach is the partnership between employer and employee. Building a culture that believes security is important is everyone’s responsibility. The enterprise can provide a user experience around security that is as seamless as the ones employees use in their personal lives, whether ordering groceries online or streaming video. It can move as they move, from location to location, app to app, device to device.

 

Users, in turn, understand the security infrastructure around them is designed to protect the enterprise by protecting them from mistakes (clicking on a bogus email or sending unsecured files, for example) that might unwittingly allow unauthorized access. It’s a way to build trust in how the concept of monitoring and the concept of continuous assessment has the appropriate framework in place for people.

 

In this context, the idea of “friction” itself evolves. Security is invisible until needed and, when needed, is a safeguard, not an impediment. A great user experience means employees are far less likely to bypass security measures in the name of efficiency and productivity, significantly lowering the risk of breaches.

 

The goal is for security and usability to work in concert, not opposition. To IDC’s Dickson, favoring one over the other represents something of a false choice. “Let’s do both right,” he says. “Let’s improve security by making it easier to use. Let’s create the incentives, so people actually want to use the platform we’re using because they improve the user experience.”

 

And when user experience and security converge in the most ideal way, what does that look like? According to Dickson, it doesn’t look like anything, and that’s exactly the point. The measures we take to improve our security are so embedded and ingrained into our applications, we don’t even know they’re there. They are free and enabling.
