India’s data network capabilities are at par with London, Singapore, and Silicon Valley. 52% capacity of India’s data networks comes from Mumbai alone. India is also an extremely mobile-friendly country and hence the need for data networks is huge.
The true potential of India’s push towards data networks and cloud will be seen when the Metro 3 Line in Mumbai will be opened to the public. It will be a seamless network for passengers and will showcase the true power of Data Networks supporting the entire effort to make city travel easy for commuters.
