The impact of communications and cloud-based services on everyday life is accelerating rapidly. Recent events have made this clear: we’ve seen years of digital transformation in mere months. Consider that by 2025 the size of the global datasphere will reach 181 zettabytes, up from 79 zettabytes in 2021, and
there will be more than 50 billion connected devices by 2030, more than double the number today. In order to support the massive scale, operators will need cloud-scale technologies and a partnership with hyperscalers. The ability of operators and hyperscalers to partner will largely be governed by the simplicity,
security, and resilience of the mobile-to-cloud experience and is thus deeply important to both the operator and the cloud provider.
