Mr. Stephen Worn, CTO & Managing Director, NAM, Datacenter Dynamics interacted and said, “India is a land of enormous possibilities. Today, India’s Enterprise IT network is at par with the best in the world and the datacenter and cloud industry has the capability of becoming global leaders. 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. As an example, Tata and Reliance are doing a phenomenal job of being a Global corporate house because of its Data Network capabilities.”
