For consumers and organizations, increased reliance on digital engagement requires ubiquitous, reliable and robust connectivity.

Organizations will need to address this unevenness in connectivity across different environments and locations as employees and consumers increasingly expect digital experiences supported by ubiquitous, reliable and robust connectivity.
