Are We Averse to Change for the Better?

When I look at the efficiency that Email has produced, I’m sure many of us (at least us 80’s kids) have marveled at this technology that makes life so easy. However, the transition from Fax to Email was quite a journey.
Sadly, this is the case with every paradigm-shifting technology. The rate of acceptance in the initial days is usually slow, and the technology is met with a lot of skepticism. I’m sure if we could travel back in time and meet the nay-sayers of Email, we would want to educate them on what they are losing out on. It can be challenging to comprehend why smart people are so averse to change?
I now find myself in a very similar position. NVT Phybridge develops paradigm-shifting technology that makes the move IP so simple that some people find it hard to believe. Decades of deep-rooted industry bias have applied blinders to many who work in networking. We make digital transformation so simple, secure, and cost-effective that they are unable to accept it.
I too was skeptical when my Uncle first told me about his UniPhyer invention. I had basic knowledge of networking at the time and was skeptical.
Over the past 10+ years, I have seen the results and the incredible benefits to end-users and partners. With over $100 million in cumulative customer savings, I know we are on the right path.
We are now seeing the industry recognize the value and the impact we are having. Frost & Sullivan recently asked the same question my Uncle did years ago: is there a better way to modernize to IP and the Internet of Things? Frost & Sullivan researched companies that took a different approach and consulted NVT Phybridge as they developed the Modern LAN whitepaper.
I think we can all agree that “modern problems require modern solutions!”. We believe that you cannot adequately support smart devices on outdated network design philosophies and expect them to perform to their fullest. You don’t need to create several tons of e-waste and destroy the planet to complete a digital transformation project. You just need to be open-minded and willing to learn about new technologies and strategies.
If you have an upcoming IP/IoT modernization project, we would love to help! Click below to book a one-on-one meeting with one of our Digital Transformation Consultants.
