This white paper delivers insights that drive digital business advantages by tracking, measuring and forecasting growth in Interconnection Bandwidth.
The total capacity provisioned to privately and directly exchange traffic with a diverse set of counterparties and providers at distributed IT exchange points inside carrier-neutral colocation data centres.
The Index predicts Interconnection Bandwidth to grow to 8,200+ Terabits by 2021, a dramatic increase over the previous year’s projection.
This represents a significant five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48%, almost double the expected 26% CAGR of global IP Traffic.
Fuelling this rapid rise are major macro, technology and regulatory forces that are changing how businesses, consumers and technologies interact.
To capture digital value, companies will need to support real-time interactions by more strategically interconnecting the workflows across people, things, locations, clouds and data.
