Switching your network up a gear

What businesses sell, how they sell it and how they get paid for it is changing. Survival is no longer dictated by how big you are, it is about whether you are ready to adapt and whether you can seize opportunities.

In order to leverage new technologies, businesses need to have the network capacity now and, in the future, to support the services that will help them grow, they need to be ready for multi-gigabit.

By 2023, half of worldwide GDP will be driven by products and services from digitally transformed industries

Network ex machina

The appetite for network capacity amongst businesses is at an all-time high. It is no longer only the enterprise that is adopting cutting edge technologies. The network now supports a wide variety of data-rich business-critical applications.

Businesses recognise that their current network infrastructure is no longer fit for purpose, with upgrading ageing infrastructure a priority.

At least one-fifth of organisations have invested in on-demand platforms, IoT, RPA, AI and ML.

The trouble with network problems is…

With so much more happening on the network, IT teams can ill afford for network issues or downtime to bring business’ grinding to a halt. IT teams need to be able to easily assess any issues and rectify them. With multiple systems this is difficult, but a network that allows for converged management gives IT teams far greater visibility.

Looking after the pennies

Moving between different network platforms is laborious, time consuming and creates unnecessary excess cost. As such, operating costs are far higher when you are using multiple vendor’s systems alongside one another. By aligning your wired and wireless networks, you create operational efficiencies and reduce maintenance costs.

The UN Economic Analysis & Policy Division predicts world GDP growth of 2.9% in 2020.


Being ready to adapt to future opportunities means laying the groundwork now so that businesses can seize upon them as they arise. If you can’t adapt, then you won’t be able to compete in the digitalised economy.

By 2025, 20% of revenue will come from offerings which combine digital services from previously unlinked industries.
