In today’s digital era, data center connectivity is key to business continuity and growth. Like the brain of the human body, the data center stores, processes, and distributes vital data for business operations. Data centers connect various devices and networks, enabling smooth data exchange and communication.

Optimal data center connectivity can enhance operational efficiency, increase productivity, and provide a better customer experience. However, many businesses still face slow and unstable data center connectivity. This can lead to various losses, such as missed revenue opportunities, reduced productivity, and customer dissatisfaction.
