Delays or data loss in the past were considered a usual every day inconvenience—a lagging email, a slow text response, etc. However, CB Insights estimates that by the year 2020, the average person will generate 1.5 GB worth of data per day. And a 2018 Forbes article reports that during the previous two years alone, 90% of the data in the world was generated, a pace that is accelerating with the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Today, network latencies have more far-reaching consequences than ever before—a momentary suspension in processing today can result in a travesty, such as an autonomous vehicle crashing or a manufacturer’s IoT controls not responding as expected, resulting in an inability to deliver products and services as expected. As more devices are connected to the internet and generating data, cloud computing may not be enough to handle the predicted onslaught, particularly at the faster speeds required for specific processes. Faster and more reliable data processing is becoming more crucial, particularly for critical remote operations.
Placing data centers at the end of the wireless network can help relieve connectivity challenges, providing last-mile networking that can deliver real-time wireless services and increased application efficiency. Featuring their “No Compromises Architecture”, Compass Datacenters has developed their Edgepoint data centers to provide a powerful platform to support edge and network extension initiatives. Watch this video to see how Fibrebond has helped the Compass Edgepoint to be your next generation network building block for remote operations.
