Meeting demand for interconnection
Business demands have combined with technological advances to exponentially increase what people expect from connectivity throughout Asia-Pacific and around the world.
- Companies now require on-demand, simultaneous interconnection with globally dispersed partners just to execute basic business tasks.
- Social and mobile users are accustomed to immediate, high-quality service at the speed of touch, no matter where they are or what device they’re using.
- More people are connected on more devices than ever. The number of tablets for home and work is expected to triple globally between 2012 and 2017 to 905 million3. The number of smartphone users is expected to pass 2.5 billion globally by 2018, with more than 700 million of them in China alone4.
