DT: What will be one of the best technology adoptions we may see among SMEs & SMBs?

Mr. Sanjay: SMEs/SMBs today rely on Analog systems running on a copper network with multiple modules.By embracing digital transformation, these businesses are able to compete with larger competitors by achieving all class-5 features along with Unified Communication (UC) capabilities &Value Added Services (VAS) in one box over a single network. It helps eliminate the modular approach for expansion; thereby eliminating multi-vendor lock-in’s.

Way forward, SME/Enterprises may opt for “Pay-as-you-go” cloud based model which leads to reduced CAPEX.
