A Surveillance Market in Growth

Reports are showing a surging market with a forecasted annual growth of 17% from 2016 to 2024. This, coupled with the trend of digitization, is generating an increasing demand for smart and fast surveillance solutions. Perhaps more important is robustness, as these surveillance systems are needed in widely different scenarios where temperatures can vary extensively.

Great Shift in the Telecoms Market

The telecommunications market is currently pouring everything into making 5G happen. As users are leaving behind the traditional uses of cellphones in favor of online-based communications, telecom companies are scrambling to meet the new demands for high speed and accessibility. The users are expecting faster connection speeds no matter where they are located, spurring the industry to keep investing in network upgrades, even in remote areas with tougher environmental conditions.

Smart and Durable Memory

The new Wide Temperature DDR4 VLP series meets the demand for faster speeds and reliability. The modules are tested and qualified for use in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius and the low profile (0.738") enables easy integration into routers, networking devices, and surveillance devices. Innodisk can guarantee that all DRAM chips are original grade and offer extensive technical and longevity support.
