Thank you to all the Peers and Networks that joined the webinar on 3rd July. It was an insightful session between Mr. Mehul Sampat from One OTT, Mr. Sanjay Liman from NTT Netmagic and Mr. Sudhir Kunder from DE-CIX India.
DE-CIX India launched its DirectCLOUD service at the DE-CIX Mumbai location to enable customers to
access the DE-CIX Cloud Exchange and connect to the global cloud services, provided by Microsoft Azure,
Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Amazon Web Services.
DE-CIX’s cloud ecosystem is a unique community of certified partners, working together to ensure a secure,
resilient, and reliable access to the cloud. Within this ecosystem, the DirectCLOUD service is an interface
connecting the infrastructure of a company via an ISP or data center with the selected cloud service
provider. This makes the access to many different cloud service providers, from niches to hybrid solutions,
In view of these significant changes in our internet usage behavior, the following questions arise: How much short-term growth can the internet actually sustain, and what are the limiting factors?
The open internet architecture was, over 50 years ago, initially conceived with important design decisions, such as the technological independence of the individual subnetworks, best-effort packet switching, and no global control. In detail, of course, the internet and all the technologies involved have undergone enormous development – but many of the basic protocols and concepts (such as IP, BGP and TCP) have mostly only been extended in important details. The totality of these decisions is the basis for the phenomenal growth of the internet over the last few decades. Therefore, it can easily handle short-term increases in data traffic, as we are currently seeing..
A stable, secure and reliable Internet connection is essential. More than ever,
accelerated digitalization means that our society is increasingly dependent on technical
innovations. In this context, 5G will play a crucial role. But there is much more to 5G than simply
“super-fast Internet” for the smartphone – as the new mobile standard is widely perceived by the
public. Streaming high-resolution content to mobile phones is only one aspect. In addition, 5G
offers enormous potential for a range of industrial and economic sectors. A prominent example is
connected factories in the wake of Industry 4.0. But there are also application scenarios in
agriculture and construction, in the transport sector, in energy production, and in the medical
