Telecom test and measurement company JDSU announced its
2012 technology trends.
JDSU 2012 technology trends include:
Development of next generation satellites to
improve weather forecasting
JDSU optical coatings are being used in the creation of
next generation satellites. Scheduled to launch over the next few years, these
new satellites will help scientists study global precipitation patterns and
improve weather forecasting. They will also help experts identify more potable
water sources that can be supplied to water-deficient regions and better
protect people from impending storms with faster warning systems.
Improved communications to stimulate
economies, education and personal expression
The Internet and wireless communications have become key
modern utilities. In 2012, the pressure is on to make these communications
faster, smarter, and more reliable in order to sustain the way people and
businesses now function in urban, rural and developing parts of the world.
These communications infrastructures also support growing use of social media
as a platform for individuals to express views that help shape events happening
at both a global and local level.
JDSU continues to focus its research and development on
dramatically smaller and highly integrated optical components that support this
complex and unpredictable flow of communications. Its test solutions provide
network intelligence needed to ensure the quality and reliability of these
communications, touching virtually every network in the world.
New uses for gesture recognition and 3D
technology in computing, medicine, and education
JDSU continues to explore new uses for gesture
recognition and 3D technology beyond gaming that will help people interact with
technology in a more natural way. New approaches are being explored in areas
such as mobile computing, medicine, and education.
Life saving technology for night vision,
genetic research and anti-counterfeiting
In 2012, JDSU will also continue to evolve technologies
that ultimately support life saving solutions. These include optical and test
services that support mobile emergency services, diode lasers for night vision
that aid search-and-rescue efforts, anti-counterfeiting technology for
tamper-evident packaging on products such as pharmaceuticals, and lasers for
Green efforts to help change the way we use
As part of its continued renewable energy efforts, JDSU
is refining its optical components to reduce power needs in server farms that
support networks. It also provides lasers for the scribing of LED wafers used
in low-energy lighting solutions, and concentrated photovoltaic technology for
the efficient conversion of sunlight into electricity within solar panels.
