The importance of hyperscale data centres for telecommunications

16 Jan 2023

It is no secret that the global telecommunication (telecoms) industry is experiencing significant growth.

In recent years, telecoms has accommodated for a rapid shift in the way businesses and consumers conduct their daily lives. From greater ways of flexible working, the ability to connect with colleagues and friends across the globe, to digesting and engaging with content online.

According to Grand View Research, the global telecom services market size was valued at USD 1,657.7 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% from 2021 to 2028. The advent of 5G, NFV/SDN, AI and machine learning are some of the major forces driving demand for enormous amounts of data being transmitted between telecoms infrastructure and the cloud. At the heart of this, hyperscale data centres are playing a pivotal role in supporting demand as they allow for organisations utilising services within the telecoms ecosystem to scale, innovate, and streamline their IT set up whilst simultaneously improving business efficiency.
