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?

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.
