Our extensive technology partnership ecosystem solves critical problems when it comes to network security, monitoring, application analysis, forensics and packet inspection.
Garland Technology is dedicated to high standards in quality and reliability, while delivering the greatest economical solutions for enterprise, service providers, and government agencies worldwide.
Due to rapidly increasing bandwidth and security concerns, the adoption of fiber optic technology, an industry expected to reach around USD 3.72 Billion by 2022, has generated a lot of talk about what the future of connectivity holds. In fact, talk about the end of ethernet, or copper gigabit networks has been going on for years.
With new technology advances, covering longer distances and faster speeds, it may seem like a no-brainer to transition to fiber optic cables. Even with data center architecture under pressure to evolve, copper still remains as a bedrock because of its cost, performance and reliability.
In fact, this is why we see many industries expanding their copper footprint instead of switching to fiber. The global Industrial Ethernet cables market is expected to trend up with CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of around 17% by 2020.
Beyond the data center, copper is proving its worldwide demand in critical infrastructure, remote sites, legacy protocols, edge of the network, industrial ethernet, office space, server farms, the internet of things (IoT), and in developing countries.
What a lot of these use cases have in common is the need for consistency in a demanding environment, where factors such as vibration, temperature, and water immersion must be taken into consideration when making your connectivity selection.
Garland understands industry trends, and with copper accounting for 77% of the total market, we continue to offer new copper gigabit solutions while continuing to invest in research and development of new products. Pushed by the demand of integrating older technology, we have developed industry leading copper solutions for the DOD, industrial ethernet and custom military deployments for tanks and humvees, and are slated to release 2-3 new products in copper this year including 100BASE-FX and USB options.
With these ethernet environments in mind, Garland has worked to develop features for copper networks that set the industry standard including:
