IP enables humans and machines to ‘talk’ to each other. It’s the foundation of the internet, and it works because it’s based on open industry standards. And it’s constantly evolving. New applications and use cases—such as 5G, Fiber Deep’s Converged Interconnect Network (CIN) architecture, and Edge Cloud—require that IP networks evolve to keep pace.
Besides improving its own energy efficiency, ICT can also help other sectors become more efficient, using the technologies it empowers to make logistics and workplaces much smarter.

The current pandemic-induced economic downturn has led many to rapidly increase the speed at which they digitise their business — sequestering workforces in their homes and looking for ways to serve a customer base that is now concentrated within digital channels. For many brands a greater transition into the cloud has been a fundamental strategy underpinning this move. However, moving to the cloud still has its challenges for some organisations. New complexities in the IT environment can prevent IT teams from delivering the promised return on cloud investments. Monitoring and observability are now critical components to an effective hybrid cloud strategy.

Service accounts are a particular type of non-human privileged account used to execute applications and run automated services, virtual machine instances, and other processes. These accounts can be privileged local or domain accounts, and in some cases, they may have domain administrative privileges. This high level of privilege facilitates the smooth operation of many IT workflows, but a single service account can easily be referenced in many applications or processes. This interconnection, along with the critical nature of their usage, makes them very difficult to manage.
