The employment of data compression technologies has almost been superseded by fibre-optics technology such as lightpath management.

Innovation on the Edge

John Hagel

I’ve played on the edge throughout most of my professional career, whether it was doing deals in the Sultanate of Oman back in the 1970s, building a start-up around a new technology called the microprocessor in 1980, building a new Internet-focused practice for McKinsey in 1993 or spending more time in places like Bangalore, Shenzhen and Shanghai in the early part of this decade (my first visit to Shenzhen was actually in 1982 when I led a major manufacturing offshoring initiative there).
