The founders of ConnectiviTree became aware of a large gap in data transport service models — data carriers (telcos) lose customers when those customers want to move their data across international borders.
There are two sides to this problem, Supply and Demand:
The Supply Problem
Carriers and network providers have legacy, software-burdened networks with outdated business models. In addition, suppliers primarily own regional networks, so they are operationally, regulatorily, and financially restricted to those regions. On top of which, cybersecurity is a complex and unsolved problem.
As a result, they are forced to share customers and revenue with competitors for long-haul services. And, they cannot leverage customer relationships for new revenue, nor rebuild a network.
In the current predicament, Telcos lose customers who want to move data across international borders. Multi-vendor solutions are at the expense of revenue, cost, capacity, security, functionality and sustainability.
Currently, Telcos are not ready to handle future innovation and demand.
The Demand Problem
Currently there is exponential growth in demand for 5G, IoT, IIoT, remote work, technological evolution, and edge computing. This is an urgent security reality, because with cybercrime, full encryption is not possible unless an entire network is purpose built.
The latest innovations developed by Enterprises come with requirements for iron-clad security for data transfer, at high capacity and high speeds.
Thus, the future is here, as Enterprises are using more data, and generating more data that will need to expand beyond borders, regionally and globally. At the same time, the largest players and budgets lack solutions.
To date, there is no Telco-partnered supplier of long-haul, purpose built networks for the global enterprise. The core of data networks is being strained by the increasing demand from edge computing and from an increased risk from rising cybersecurity threats.
