A 6G Crash Course: What’s Headed Our Way?

2022-11-22T09:46:43-06:00

5G is certainly having its heyday, and the entire IT ecosystem is still in the midst of 5G densification, use case development, and full-on rollout. It’s no surprise that 5G would garner so much press — as with every new generation cellular technology, it brings a lot of value, innovation, and enhanced capabilities to businesses and users of all kinds. In fact, the influence of 5G is so extensive that by 2030, the economic impact of 5G is expected to reach $227 billion — in the manufacturing industry alone. Take into consideration the huge implications this technology will have on mobile communications, healthcare, government, entertainment, and more, and it’s clear [...]

With Data Center Sustainability, Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

2022-11-04T10:27:39-05:00

There’s a lot of ground to cover in order to make data centers sustainable. This power-intensive industry deals with mission-critical, increasingly dense, and power-hungry deployments and applications — but impacts on the environment must be reduced. Collectively, the world of critical infrastructure is always looking to make these two realities reconcilable. However, in order for progress to be made, each and every data center provider must take on personal responsibility to make its data center environment as green as possible. So, let’s talk about how 1623 is taking responsibility for the progression of sustainable IT right here in the Omaha, Nebraska metro. Giving Green the Cool Factor Every data center [...]

Making the Cloud Work for You: Customized Connections for All

2022-10-14T12:53:41-05:00

These days, everyone wants everything to be customized to their preferences. We want to choose what we do and don’t put on our burgers, we want to make the background on our phone representative of what we love, and we want to curate our social media feeds to show us what’s most interesting to us. Doesn’t it make sense then that, when it comes to IT (arguably the most crucial facet of today’s global business), we’d want it to be fully tailored too? Users want things to be customized to their unique specifications, and certainly, as specifications across digital business and platforms become more nuanced and individualized, it’s vital that [...]

Unleashing the Full Value of Next-Gen IT: The Key to it All

2022-08-03T11:47:19-05:00

As rapid, multi-industry advances reshape the way our world communicates, operates, educates and finds entertainment, technologies like AI, IoT, VR and a whole lot of other acronyms have taken the world by storm. However, as we look to truly harness the power of these technologies and adapt them to a dynamic world, the edge data center remains king.  Edge data centers have been a much-discussed facet of IT due to their importance in getting the right levels of latency and speed for tomorrow’s fast-paced, data-intensive applications — but not all edge data centers are created equal. That’s because not all edge data centers have data gravity.  Many may know data [...]

More Content, More Connectivity — We’re Turning Up Our Ecosystem with Akamai

2022-05-20T11:30:06-05:00

When 1623 Farnam recently asked tenants what they wanted most from the facility, the answers were clear – access to more content and high-value peering opportunities. 1623 asked. The tenants answered. And we delivered — not only with a recent major hyperscaler network turn-up, but with another high-value ecosystem expansion to boot. In May, 1623 announced  a key hyperscaler had upgraded its 1623 port from 40G to 100G, delivering a major expansion and offering a slew of new networking and peering opportunities in the 1623 ecosystem. But as promised, 1623 didn’t stop there. The company has just announced another major expansion that will greatly benefit 1623 tenants. Akamai Technologies, Inc., [...]

5G: Catalyzing Humanity’s Newest Revolution

2022-05-09T16:09:39-05:00

In the span of human existence and evolution, there always comes a time when we bring about major leaps forward in terms of how our species lives, thrives, and interacts with both its surroundings and itself.  The agricultural revolutions first allowed our nomadic ancestors to become settled and helped our populations grow due to reliable food sources, then enhanced farming techniques spurred our numbers further and helped us more efficiently cultivate our Earth. Then there are the industrial revolutions, which helped us increase our productivity and carved our map of urban centers where populations were highest. These also helped streamline our methods of living, offering humankind greater ease while shifting [...]
