Today, more than 99% of things in the physical world are unconnected. Amazing things will happen and amazing experiences will be created as new people, process, data, and things join and interact on the Internet of Everything.

The network plays a critical role in the Internet of Everything - it must provide an intelligent, manageable, secure infrastructure that can scale to support billions of context-aware devices. The intelligent network listens, learns, and responds with open interfaces for greater security, simplicity, reliability, and innovation at a scale like never before.

How will the Internet of Everything...

Impact data traffic?

As we continue to wake up the world by building open and secure networks, data traffic is growing rapidly. By the end of 2016, global data center traffic will reach 6.6 zettabytes. We can get you ready for an onslaught of data that's bound to impact every business.

Fuel businesses' imaginations?

The more things we connect to the Internet, the more business opportunities we uncover. And as billions of things communicate, learn and help one another, the only limitation left for innovation will be our imaginations.

Power innovation?

Planning a network-technology transition will define your business' ability to tap into the potential of the Internet of Everything and ride the technology avalanche to success.
