Today, the rise of mobile video streaming and rich content is pushing 4G technology to its limits, and now the Hong Kong government is already promoting and facilitating the development of 5G ahead of its planned launch in 2021.
The 5G era is coming, and companies can rely on an important ally to help them get the most this technology can provide: interconnection, which is the exchange of private traffic between companies, providing faster, safer connectivity with less latency and greater bandwidth. With the advancement of 5G, this type of platform will allow companies to continually access network and cloud ecosystems, regardless of their size, providing more revenue opportunitie
Equinix passed our 20th birthday last year, so for our 20th installment of the “How to Speak Like a Data Center Geek” series, we are taking on the topic of ecosystems. The timing is not a coincidence because, in many respects, digital business ecosystems have evolved in parallel with our own history.
If you’ve been involved in IT management in any way during the past ten years, you’ve no doubt noticed network architecture is being transformed. It’s trending toward a decentralized model where enterprises increasingly rely on a variety of IT and connectivity providers for network infrastructure and management.
To help companies demonstrate and realize the tangible value of interconnection-driven IT initiatives, Forrester created the Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) methodology. “The Total Economic Impact™ of Equinix,” a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Equinix, published in April 2019, provides companies with the framework to evaluate the potential cost savings and business benefits enabled by deploying interconnection with Equinix.
