Whether it’s for business or education, entertainment or shopping, nearly every financial transaction, phone call or text, movie download or Internet search either now takes place or is recorded in a data center. With nearly everyone’s professional and personal lives dependent upon a healthy ecosystem of data centers, it is only natural that data centers are now targeted by thieves, spies and others maliciously seeking to cause damage or to steal the information contained within a data center.

Faster, denser technology is driving costs, and the right high performance cabling is needed to provide stability in the data center. Unsuitable infrastructure can become an expensive problem, delaying necessary upgrades and creating other potential obstacles needed to stay competitive. This report contains the four best practices needed to achieve a high performance, future-ready structured cabling solution for a data center.
According to Cisco’s Global Cloud Index (2015), global data centre IP traffic will grow at a CAGR of 25% between 2014 and 2019 and data centre workloads within ‘traditional’ (as opposed to cloud) data centres will more than double.
In this guide you will find best practices to meet the demands of the Digital Economy, with help from DatacenterDynamics and Nexans.

What will the world we live, play and work in be like 10-15 years from now? One can only guess, but there are some important things to consider today, when we design the infrastructure to support tomorrow’s needs being driven by billions of IoT connected devices.
Rehab programs will experience a major infux of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.
This leaves rehab leaders with one signifcant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients: • Clinical staff • Tech innovation • Patient and family member experience
Research has demonstrated enhanced technology can improve communication between patients, families and care providers, improve motivation, and has the potential to effect better outcomes and higher levels of patient satisfaction. Additionally, better technology also makes the workplace more appealing to employees.
With the investment and complexity involved, how can health systems utilize technology in the most efficient and effective ways to drive business results?
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed breach world.
