Your Future Network

HomeYour Future Network

A connected future – what does it mean for your business?

Today’s network is built to deliver applications and services that didn’t exist 10 or 15 years ago, designed for companies that may themselves only be a few years old and delivering products and services on devices that are changing the way we live and work.

In this guide, we look beyond the noise and headlines to assess four technology areas we believe will have the biggest impact on the networks of tomorrow. They have the potential to not only improve current processes and structures but to help meet the network demands of the future.

This report looks at current use cases and potential future for:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI trends)
  • On-Demand networks
  • SD WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Networks) and SDN trends
  • Future of Blockchain

It’s intended as a top-level overview to help you start planning your future network and assess where each technology can play a part.

This isn’t just future gazing or speculation –  Colt is already testing or deploying these technologies across its network today, helping to solve real world challenges for our customers.
