What’s New In Interconnection?


Telecom carriers, colocation and data center providers, and internet exchanges have quickly pivoted to increase capacity and expand network routes. The reliance on connectivity means more tech advancements and innovative capabilities. Workloads are becoming more and more sensitive to latency. AR/VR, AI, and cloud gaming are all proof that data needs to be processed as close to the end user as possible, but also in a very secure way. These types of technologies are completely redefining the way we do business. These new technologies need high-quality network architecture, low latency routes, and global peering capabilities. All of these aspects rely on the foundation of rich, robust interconnection. But...then what? Hyperscalers [...]
