Geographic proximity for increasing connectivity demands
The Internet of Things and rich media content delivery to mobile devices is expected to swell to unprecedented levels. By 2020, at least 20 billion active internet-connected devices and applications will be operational globally, resulting in soaring bandwidth and network demands. Content being delivered outside normal networking channels runs the risk of slower access for consumers on their web connected devices. By shifting content closer to user communities in markets typically underserved by data center and telecom service providers, Flexential helps relieve network constraints from businesses and consumers seeking faster anytime, anywhere access to high-quality content.
As you embark on your edge strategy, consider partnering with an IT provider with the right connectivity options, people power and data center locations in a growing number of tier 2 markets across the U.S. to provide a first-rate online experience no matter how consumers are accessing the web.
Flexential offers a unique combination of hybrid IT solutions with both global reach and local market coverage, allowing you to deliver content on one of the leading networks in North America.
We’ll work with you to ensure your HybridEdge solution meets user expectations, while lowering your costs, improving efficiencies and future-proofing your network for IoT growth.
