"BRI's large-scale connectivity requirements align with the capabilities and strengths of our technology, enabling scalability, stability and efficiency within the network."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
