The Global Sensors Market in Healthcare and Medical Applications

Image
Currently, the most exciting when it comes to the Global Sensors Market in Healthcare and Medical Applications, is to observe that, high growth of the emerging market can be expected in the biosensors and wearable sensors product segments.
The increased usage of smartphones and mobiles, which make it possible to keep track of health and fitness using apps and end-user devices, is at the core of stakes as powerful market drivers. Miniaturization of sensors is leading to ease of integration. According to Research and Markets, the global sensors market in healthcare and medical applications is led by North America followed by Europe. The firm predicts that, with patient care moving from hospitals to homes, the home diagnostic and consumer healthcare segments are the key opportunity areas.

Converged Systems industry in our digital-driven era

For those who are unfamiliar, integrated infrastructure, certified reference systems, integrated platforms, and hyperconverged systems are part of Converged Systems industry. Integrated infrastructure and certified reference systems are pre-integrated, vendor-certified systems containing server hardware, disk storage systems, networking equipment, and basic element/systems management software. Integrated Platforms are integrated systems that are sold with additional pre-integrated packaged software and customized system engineering optimized to enable such functions as application development software, databases, testing, and integration tools. Hyperconverged systems collapse core storage and compute functionality into a single, highly virtualized solution. A key characteristic of hyperconverged systems that differentiate these solutions from other integrated systems is their scale-out architecture and their ability to provide all compute and storage functions through the same x86 serve…

Worldwide Converged Systems Revenue: the full year 2016 and the Fourth Quarter of 2016

Fresh findings from IDC reveal that, worldwide converged systems market revenues decreased 1.4% year over year to $3.09 billion during the fourth quarter of 2016 (4Q16). The report also indicates that, the market consumed 1.6 exabytes of new storage capacity during the quarter, which was up a moderate 4.0% compared to the same period a year ago. I can observe that, for the full year 2016, worldwide converged systems market revenues increased 5.8% to $11.3 billion when compared to 2015.

The rising number of credit and debit cards within the global Contactless PoS Terminals Market

The global Contactless PoS Terminals Market is steadily hit by the increased number of card transactions. In effect, the rising number of credit and debit cards and the increase in the use of these cards for payment transactions by consumers are encouraging the merchants to opt for POS terminals during checkout. With an increase in the number of card transactions, enterprises that were earlier reluctant to adopt payment mechanisms involving cards are now more likely to consider them.

The latest trend gaining momentum in global Contactless PoS Terminals Market

Many analysts concede on the reality, the global Contactless PoS Terminals Market is on an exciting curve.
In effect, the latest trend gaining momentum in the market is mobile phone OEMs coming up with magnetic secure transmission (MST) technology. Some of the smartphones by vendors like Samsung have MST technology inbuilt in their recent smartphones. They can emit a magnetic signal that mimics the magnetic strip on a traditional payment card. The technology enables the phones to send magnetic signals to the traditional card-reading POS terminals, which facilitate the payment. Therefore, merchants with POS terminals need not upgrade their software or any of their hardware components.

The Évolution of Silicon Photonics, 5G Networking and the Internet of Things

It is very exciting to note that emerging technologies such as Silicon Photonics, 5G Networking and the Internet of Things, virtual reality (VR) and much more, are steadily impacting our daily routines as an individual or as business enterprises or government organizations. Overall, the impact is widely positive over certain technical constraints progressively addressed. 5G Networking and the Internet of Things, virtual reality (VR) and much more escalate bandwidth growth, and it is encouraging to observe that, the Optical Fiber Conference and Exposition (OFC), connects the industry’s leaders and business professionals to discuss optical innovations for future networking growth segments such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) and much more.
