The Tricky Business of Delivery

by Employee ‎01-12-2012 08:33 PM - edited ‎01-12-2012 08:47 PM

This guest post was written by John Czwartacki, a new blogger for Verizon at Home, writing from the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show.

 

The airplane that brought me to CES does a lot of amazing things. It connected me with where I wanted to go, it navigated around bad weather, dealt with the legal and jurisdictional requirements along my route, with its secure cockpit doors and pre-board screening, kept the bad guys at bay, and delivered me and all of my things safely where it promised. The miracle of human flight, as Mr. Louis CK calls it.

 

In many ways, Verizon does the same. We connect you with your destination, and help you meet your goals. Whether it’s to consume a piece of content or delivering some valuable 1s and 0s to a client across the globe, we’re in the virtual delivery game.

We ensure the security of that delivery, take pains to protect and navigate the copyright and legal protections that accompany those goods, and have the developed the technology to bring that content to the screen of your choosing.

 

This is the innovation of network delivery. And when delivery network innovates, the edge can take us to places only their imaginations can envision.

 

Yes, often it’s sexier at the edge – the cool app, the location and preference aware check-in, the Swiss army device that brings it together – but they would be still-born if the network didn’t evolve to support the edge’s ideas.

 

In a nutshell, if Verizon drives the network to be bigger, better, and more capable, innovators at the edge will thrive.
