Under the new name of Meta, the tech giant Facebook announced a rebrand with a strong effort to develop the metaverse. This term has therefore become a buzzword in 2021, and is anticipated to be realized in the next few decades. In fact, a metaverse is thought to embody the concretization of virtual space and conversion of physical objects into data, so that the two dimensions are interactive and everything can be computed. Yet, an engine with robust technologies and innovative infrastructure must be in place to bring the fictional metaverse into reality.
A time of crisis indeed opens up rare opportunities, and the pandemic has set the stage to enter the metaverse era. In the early days of the pandemic, many enterprises addressed the challenge by accelerating their digital transformation. For instance, the deployment of remote working with a secure network allowed employees to maintain normal operations; and the shift of offline business to online or online-to-offline (O2O) model has opened up new market segments. More enterprises proceeded with comprehensive digital transformation one year later, leveraging innovative technologies to transform operations so as to deliver a more interactive customer experience, and gradually fostered metaverse.
With the heated debate on the concept of metaverse, most experts agree that the core of metaverse must be supported by infrastructure incorporating innovative technologies. Each element, whether it is the network, cloud, information security or data center, underpins the metaverse. In the course of planning future business development, enterprises ought to examine the availability of their IT infrastructure.
With our industry-leading innovation capabilities and global resources, CITIC Telecom CPC offers a highly digitalized and intelligent infrastructure as the backbone for enterprises, in order to help seize every opportunity of digital transformation and capture the new, global trend of metaverse. Needless to mention that cloud applications can further advance the digitalization of operations. A secure and stable network infrastructure with robust cloud computing capabilities enable enterprises to process a massive amount of data in a multi-cloud environment, improving network efficiency.
However, the network environment has become more complex due to the prevalence of distributed operations, expanding attack surfaces of enterprises. Intelligent network security solutions are recommended in replace of basic network precautions to minimize security threats. Such solutions are able to actively detect anomalies, identify root causes based on behavioral analysis and machine-learning algorithms, and predict next cyberattacks to enhance cyber protection. Meanwhile, by regularly backing up the systems and deploying disaster recovery solutions, enterprises can restore data immediately in the event of an attack to maintain business continuity.
