It’s easy to get excited about digital transformation — innovative new technologies promise to revolutionize everything from manufacturing to healthcare to gaming, and it seems like there’s new developments every day. Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things and 5G are just a few of the technologies expected to profoundly influence business this year, and organizations across industries will feel the impact of the digital transformation. 

Today’s most sought-after, empowering technologies (like ML and AI, IoT and 5G) demand the lowest latencies and the most reliable, high-quality networking to function properly — and any connectivity issues can cause businesses to suffer from financial consequences, a loss of customer trust and more. Fortunately, there is a solution that can guarantee a stronger network: Peering with an Internet Exchange.

In other words, it’s the boost your network needs to empower all this exciting new tech (or even just optimize your current operations)

So, what does that mean for IT spend? That’s a natural next question for anyone considering making a switch to peering — and it’s a question we have the answers to. In this ebook, we break the costs and advantages of peering down for you, so you know exactly how to tackle your IT budgeting curiosities.
