A new study published by Cisco demonstrates the importance of the Internet to young people (college students). The  study found that the Internet is ranked as important to their lives as water, food, air, and shelter.

In addition, two-thirds of students (66 percent) and more than half of employees (58 percent) cite a mobile device (laptop, smartphone or tablet) as “the most important technology in their lives.” 

The future of video conferencing and cloud-based services!
