Powered Smart Card Markets 2012 - New Report Quantifies the Markets for Powered Smart Cards and their Major Components

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Powered Smart Card Markets 2012" report to their offering.

This report, which quantifies the markets for powered smart cards and their major components. Specifically, the objective of this report is to quantify the markets for powered smart cards by application and by region, and to quantity the market for two key components of powered smart cards - batteries and displays - over the next eight years, in both volume/quantity and revenue terms.

We examine the latest component technologies, strategies, and technical developments of the industry. NanoMarkets has provided coverage of powered smart cards now for several years as part of its analysis of the markets for low-cost displays and printed batteries, and in this report we share the insights that we have garnered into the market opportunities that will emerge and grow in the powered smart card market.

The powered smart card end-use markets covered by this report include: one-time password (OTP) cards, gift and customer loyalty cards, and identification (ID) or medical information cards. We also assess the differences in the potentials for powered smart cards in these applications by region, namely in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Americas.

Batteries for powered smart cards are broken out into two general categories: printed batteries, which dominate the market for onboard power today, and thin-film batteries, which have the potential to be adopted more widely in the coming years. Display technologies used in powered smart card applications include liquid crystal displays (LCDs), light-emitting diode (LED) displays, electrophoretic displays (EPDs), and electrochromic displays.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
