We now live in an “always on, always connected world,” with people, devices and enterprises digitally linked in ways never before imagined. Companies and governments are starting to provide free Internet and by 2015 it is estimated that there will be 4.9 Billion global mobile phone users with the ability to make a mobile connection to every person on earth. Communication connections are multiplying and that is estimated to drive an additional 14.4 Trillion dollars of Corporate profits over the next decade.
Entities in every sector are being confronted, either directly or indirectly, with technological change, increased competition, an evolving regulatory environment, shortened product cycles, and continued pressure to evolve. Instant and reliable critical communications has never been more vital, yet throughout critical communication markets the use of antiquated communication technologies, developed decades ago, is still common place.
