With our partner Converge! Network Digest, AvidThink is pleased to announce the latest site in our Next-Generation Infrastructure series: The 2023 New Middle Mile Report and Resource Site.
Introducing the 2023 New Middle Mile Resource Site: Perspectives and Insights from Industry Leaders and Innovators
The 2023 New Middle Mile Resource Site and accompanying report provide readers with perspectives and insights from industry leaders and innovators like Aarna, Arrcus, Graphiant, Orange Business Services, BT, Colt, and many more. We’ll be rotating in fresh content periodically, so keep your eye on the site as we bring you the latest insights into the New Middle Mile.
AvidThink Report provides insights into the New Middle Mile
This new industry report analyzes the evolving middle mile landscape through a combined networking and computing lens. We explain why putting both into our New Middle Mile (NMM) definition makes sense and why the NMM represents a Goldilocks region — far enough upstream to provide economies of scale but close enough to edge locations to ensure low-latency control and response times. And given the fixed nature of the first and last mile, we explain why we believe the NMM is ripe for innovation and optimization.
Our report also identifies key players in the ecosystem and examines the workloads driving investment in the NMM. And we delve into the technologies that impact and can improve middle-mile connectivity and computing, such as virtualized and disaggregated networking, orchestration, and automation. Finally, we look at new players emerging in the NMM and how technology trends shape its future.
