Success in the Digital Era Relies on a Next-Generation Network.
The term perfect storm is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways
of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm. Businesses that embraced the Internet in its early days gained a significant advantage over their competitors; those that did not became irrelevant very quickly.

Today, we are on the precipice of another perfect storm this time, driving the industry from the Internet era into the mobile and cloud-computing era. This revolution reaches billions of mobile devices and, for the first time ever in history, the number of connected endpoints will exceed a 1-to-1 per-capita ratio.
