RPC Globo unleashes full benefits of IP connectivity

In a recent IABM published report on the State of the MediaTech 2022, it stated that 52% of media companies have adopted cloud technology and the trend continues to climb upwards in the post-pandemic period. As far as the shift to IP goes, this same report contends that 44% of media companies have adopted IP and the trend is bucking upwards at a faster rate.
