What is Digital Infrastructure (Dgtl Infra)?
Digital Infrastructure is the physical link, which is driving connectivity, as Internet traffic, mobile data traffic, and data storage needs increase.
Despite common misunderstandings around “wireless” communication and the “cloud”, the entirety of global communications networks are reliant on physical infrastructure assets.
Digital Infrastructure represents the building blocks of fundamental technologies like 5G and is comprised of four types of real assets, which coexist to deliver bandwidth: 1. Towers, 2. Data Centers, 3. Fiber, and 4. Small Cells & DAS.
