Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively.

For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.
IBM Cloud Identity Service is helping businesses simplify Identity and Access Management (IAM) through a cloud-delivered service (IDaaS). IBM Cloud Identity Service combines the full spectrum of IAM, including federation, web access management, and identity governance with the speed, agility, and lower cost of the cloud. This video demonstrates how to rapidly integrate SaaS and other third-party applications using the "Quick Connect" feature within the IBM Cloud Identity Service and securely connect people and applications to the cloud.
In today’s global economy, innovation matters. For teams to innovate rapidly and with great frequency, they must be able to clearly communicate and closely collaborate.
Miscommunication, misunderstanding and misinterpretation only leads to costly errors, bottlenecked business processes and market misfires. Most of these issues are avoidable.
A convergence of low-cost but high-quality technology and a
highly competitive business environment is making video
collaboration a channel of choice for today’s information
workers and decision makers. The availability of relatively
low-cost technology—including high-quality video conferencing
equipment, high-bandwidth networks and easy-to-use applications
and tools—is bringing video collaboration within reach of today’s workforce.
The impact on innovation and productivity—as well as critical
business processes, from customer service to problem-solving—is only just starting to be felt.
Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively. The Cisco Virtual Networking Index™ (Cisco VNI™) predicts that over 50 billion devices will be connected over these networks by 2020. The network effects of the Internet of Things, LTE mobility, and mobile video are just beginning to be understood. In a world where mobile device network additions are growing four times faster than the population, and machine-to-machine (M2M) device network additions are growing five times faster than mobile device additions, this problem is clearly becoming highly important and requires a good solution.
