Five networking technology trends of 2023 by Five networking technology trends of 2023 by Alan Hayward, Sales & Marketing Manager at SEH Technology

Technology has been evolving at a rapid rate in recent years, and as we move forward into 2023, it’s showing no signs of slowing down. The constant development of information systems and their organisational value coincides with the ever-increasing threat of cyberattacks, elevating the urgency for strong data security.

Looking ahead, it’s crucial to consider how future developments in the ITsector will impact the way in which we live our day-to-day lives, the value created through the technology and the wider societal and environmental implications for the modern world. With this in mind, its vital businesses keep their finger on the pulse in terms of the top trends that are set to define the next 12 months in the tech and network industry.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has soared in recent years, with its impressive suite of applications growing enormously on a year-by-year basis. As we look ahead into 2023, the machine learning, data processing and language modelling functionality of AI creates the potential of incredible value for businesses, educational institutions and the wider public alike.

AI provides businesses with the opportunity to process large volumes of data incredibly quickly, with machine learning algorithms having the ability to learn over time, which means that as the system processes more and more data, it gradually starts to recognise patterns, behaviours and trends in data sets. This is paving the way for businesses, helping them to gain a more accurate and precise understanding of their customers needs, as well as allowing them to recommend and adjust their services accordingly.

As AI continues to evolve, its influence in business and modern day society will rise in tandem, driving forward a faster, more streamlined, data-driven future.

WiFi 7

WiFi 7 is the new standard for WiFi technology, expected to come into force in 2023, transforming the way that we use the internet. WiFi 7 is predicted to vastly improve WiFi speeds, support additional connections and ensure lower latency for all users, compared to its older WiFi standards. Network capacity is also expected to be greatly increased in WiFi 7, allowing large volumes of data to seamlessly be transferred over different nodes in the network.

WiFi 7 is certainly going to be an area of technology to keep an eye out for in 2023, paving the way for incredible developments in other fields, supported by its increased speeds, reduced latency and larger network capacity.

The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) has increasingly integrated itself into our lives in recent years, and when looking ahead to the future, the technology is only going to continue to grow exponentially. The IoT is a network of interconnected devices that share and process data in real-time, being able to detect patterns, identify problems and adapt at a truly rapid rate.

Devices that are connected to the IoT provide businesses with the ability to track, monitor, analyse and react to customer data faster than ever before. In a world that is becoming increasingly interconnected, the IoT helps businesses adapt and cater their services to meet the needs of their customers, with some even utilising AI capabilities like machine learning to further hasten the automated process.

The Cloud

The Cloud is a combination of applications and services that can be accessed over the internet. Cloud Computing provides businesses with potentially unlimited scope of growth, through additional computing power, storage, and virtual resources to meet the needs of an ever-evolving organisation. The Cloud offers an extra layer of flexibility for companies, allowing staff to work from anywhere in the world, as long as they have access to the internet.

The future of the Cloud is heavily linked to several of the other 2023 technology trends. The widespread release of WiFi 7 will allow businesses to access, download and upload to Cloud-based systems at a much quicker rate, with an increased network capacity significantly boosting the value of the Cloud. Advancements in the IoT will also offer more data which can be processed and analysed through the use of Machine Learning and AI in the Cloud, giving businesses a wealth of information that can be utilised to improve their products and services.

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a rapidly evolving area in the technology sector, with new hardware and software evolving in line with an ever-growing threat of cyberattacks and data vulnerability. As digital networks become more interconnected, due to advancements in the Cloud, the IoT and WiFi 7, organisations must ensure that they are doing all that they can to protect their data and information.

While the future of cybersecurity can never be set in stone, there are a lot of steps that organisations can take to ensure that their systems are as secure as possible. Developments in the AI field have led to the creation of AI algorithms that can identify system vulnerabilities and potential issues, utilising machine learning capabilities to detect and react to a threat at an immensely faster rate than humans could ever achieve.

Businesses can also take action to help their staff become more ‘cyber-aware’ through workshops, training sessions and improved cybersecurity policies, further reducing the risk of a potential cyber-attack.

Closing Thoughts

Technology and the Digital World are evolving at a truly remarkable rate, and when we look ahead to 2023, this shows no sign of slowing down. Fields such as AI, the IoT, the Cloud and so many more are in a state of constant development, with changes and improvements adding to the value that they provide businesses, people and society as a whole.

While advancements in technology do require further cybersecurity precautions, they help businesses to collate additional data on its customers, allowing them to analyse the trends and patterns in the information to better adapt and alter the services that they provide, meeting the needs of each individual customer, while ensuring that data and information is stored as securely as possible.
