Global Active Optical Cable (Personal Computing, Consumer Electronics and Digital Signage) Market-Forecast to 2024

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/n2xk58/active_optical) has announced the addition of the "Active Optical Cable Markets and Opportunities: 2014 to 2024: Volume II - Personal Computing, Consumer Electronics and Digital Signage Markets" report to their offering.

Already, today AOCs are used as extenders in certain video environments and they have also been adopted for digital signage to a limited extent. But that's about it. So, the goal of this report is to show how the AOC market will be able to further penetrate non-conventional markets and the economic and technological trends that are making it possible. The report is primarily focused on business strategy; analyzing those market sectors in which AOCs may someday find a mass market.

In a few years, these sectors may overtake the data center AOC market. However, the business and technical characteristics, as well as the acceptable price points for AOCs sold into these emerging markets will be quite different from those that are standard for data center AOCs.

With this in mind, this report examines what it will take to be successful in the market for AOCs outside the data center.

In particular, this report will answer the following questions:


--  Outside of the data center, will applications use existing Ethernet AOCs
    or will special consumer and prosumer AOCs emerge?
--  How will the AOCs of the future coexist with ubiquitous consumers
    electronics connectivity standards such as USB and HDMI?
--  What cable lengths and price points are appropriate to AOC markets
    outside of the data center?
--  How will the supplier marketing and branding evolve for AOCs outside of
    the data center?
--  What will be the involvement of consumer electronics retailers and
    systems integrators in the new AOC markets? What new alliances will be
    formed? And how will new Chinese suppliers become involved in this
    sector of the AOC market?

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
Almost two-thirds of companies either have or soon will have IoT as the backbone of their business in 2016. However, IoT is far more complex than most firms expected. How can you not get trapped in the pitfalls? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, a renowned visionary and thought leader, will introduce a holistic method of IoTification, which is the process of IoTifying the existing technology and business models to adopt and leverage IoT. He will drill down to the components in this fra...
Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.
