COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the operations of almost every organization.

This has positively impacted the demand for video as a service solution across the globe.

Increasing demand for cloud services due to the introduction of 5G
With the introduction of 5G technologies, the cloud computing industry will witness major advancements. In addition, 5G enhances the integration of these advanced technologies with low to zero latency, which makes it more streamlined for communications. Improved mobile broadband would provide an effortless, best-quality experience for cloud video services like recording, conferencing, and storage.
