CommScope: Big Data & The Physical Layer

by Lauren Dempsey on December 18, 2012

What is at the top of 2013 trend list according to IT analysts? Analysts say that BIG DATA will top the charts due to the large volume of data being stored these days. The benefit is its ability to analyze data at a fast rate in order to make better-educated decisions, quicker. A fun fact about Big Data is that in Britain it is now included on balance sheets, eliminating its abstract status according to the British Broadcasting Corporation. Continue reading to learn how Big Data can benefit the cabling industry and CommScope, in particular.

It is that time when IT analysts begin recounting the year’s major trends and weighing in with their predictions for 2013. “Big Data” is at the top of many lists. That should be no surprise, given the massive volumes of information being stored and the promise that Big Data holds.

The sheer quantity of data being produced by all manner of IP devices is only part of the story. Big Data’s real value is in the ability to analyze data quickly, and use it to make muchCommScope Big Data better-informed decisions. The ultimate goal is to make decisions in real-time, when the impact is the biggest.

Big Data’s value is no longer an abstract concept. For example, the British Broadcasting Corporation reported corporate data now appears as a balance sheet line item for 20 percent of the United Kingdom’s biggest companies. Studies, such as the 2011 McKinsey report on Big Data, identified significant savings and revenue opportunities based on Big Data analytics that stretched into the hundreds of billions of Euros.

These Big Data concepts—using information to make accurate decisions in real-time—can also extend to the cabling infrastructure. CommScope’s SYSTIMAX® imVision® solution provides an in-depth view of the end-to-end physical layer, and automatically documents any changes that corrective action must be taken immediately. For example, if a new server needs to be installed, imVision can provide the end-the-end connectivity path for that server, based on information it has in its database. No manual review of spreadsheets, no reliance on obsolete data, and most importantly, no possibility that the path selected will be occupied by another service.

The imVision solution can assist customers in making informed decisions in an office building, by tracking and locating IT equipment. In the era of “Bring Your Own Device,” this capability becomes even more critical.

Are you ready to deploy an intelligent management solution to assist with your “Big Data” accommodations?
