If the last year and a half has taught the IT industry anything, it’s that hybrid cloud solutions and flexible buying options are no longer nice-to-haves, they’re a must for the majority of businesses, from the largest global enterprises to the smallest mom-and-pop shops.
Edge networking is also on the rise like never before. That’s because enterprise networks have seen grappling with brand-new traffic and usage patterns from teleworking. Not to mention all the new use cases emerging as healthcare facilities and schools required connectivity in parking lots, and retail businesses building out curbside services. It almost goes without saying that the cloud continues to rise in popularity, especially as solution providers help their customers gear up for the new normal and future networking requirements. This landscape is really paving the way for newcomers to jump onto the scene with their fresh take on subscription-based networking services and private next-generation wireless and cellular connectivity options.
