Connectivity is crucial to the success of rural communities, and Netrality strongly supports improving rural broadband accessibility. That’s why we are very excited that CharitonValley, northeast Missouri’s premier communications company, has selected two of Netrality’s facilities to further broaden their broadband service to rural communities.

Conventional data center cooling methods simply won’t hold up under the processing demands of AI, 5G wireless, Internet of Things (IoT), and the rise of Smart Cities. Promising new cooling methods will be needed not only to ensure that data centers can keep up with data processing demands but also to make data centers ever more sustainable.
Data centers today process ever larger, more complex volumes of data. Hybrid cloud, 5G wireless, the internet of things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI)-based applications are pushing traditional data center capabilities to their limits. Data centers require agility and intelligence to effectively manage these increasing demands and workloads.
Achieving LEED certification can be a tall order for data centers. In fact, LEED data centers are surprisingly rare; fewer than 5% of all US data centers have achieved LEED certification. However, some forward-thinking industry leaders are reshaping the green data center landscape, enjoying reduced energy costs while building better, healthier structures for building occupants, the community, and the environment.
The emergence of 5G and the exponential growth of IoT-based sensors and devices has created a demand for real-time data analysis that traditional cloud networks simply can’t provide.
It is estimated that two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, a significant increase from the current 54%. In order for cities to accommodate this rapid growth while remaining functional and responsive to people’s needs, they need to become smarter.
When you’re gaming or enjoying a movie over the web, latency (experienced as lag) can be annoying. When performing an operation, latency can be catastrophic. Fortunately, next generation connectivity solves that problem and opens up new possibilities in the delivery of medical care.
The demand for content flowing from large-scale gaming and streaming services is driving hyperscale expansion. Because delivering this content without a loss of quality–or a subpar customer experience–requires processing and distribution at the edge, hyperscalers need to supplement their footprint with interconnected points of presence that can optimize content delivery.
In preparation for the 5G data onslaught, content delivery players – industry stalwarts such as Akamai and growing players such as Fastly – are designing scalable solutions powered by strategic edge Points of Presence (PoPs) to enable the seamless distribution of rich media content to the end users.
