The days of vanilla connectivity services are gone. In their stead, we see service providers offer increasingly complex and dynamic services combining connectivity, compute and storage with low latency and high levels of security. However, no one service provider has every single components of such services in its own inventory and so they will buy them from a wide range of partners in a very large, heterogeneous and competitive ecosystem.
This Infinite Edge episode explores how that ecosystem is built upon a federation of trusted and interconnected partners that can participate in complex service supply chains that deliver a multitude of cloud-based services in minutes rather than months.
In this sixth episode, Rosemary Cochran will join top experts to share their vision, experience, and expertise and address top-of-mind questions on this exciting market.
Business Fiber Trends – How Fiber Providers and Emerging Services Are Lighting Up the U.S. Landscape
In this session of Fiber for Breakfast, Rosemary Cochran, Principal and Co-Founder, Vertical Systems Group, discusses how Fiber Providers are expanding the base of lit commercial buildings and data centers across the country, and outlines the key trends and services driving demand. Today’s U.S. Business Fiber landscape includes more than one million on-net sites, supplied by hundreds of retail and wholesale providers. The annual benchmark for measuring market leadership in this segment is Vertical’s Fiber Lit Buildings LEADERBOARD, which ranks the top providers based on fiber penetration rates. Latest research analysis shows that while the pandemic hampered installations during 2020, emerging services such as 5G plus opportunities in the small buildings segment will boost rollouts of new business fiber in 2021.
This event, chaired by Erin Dunne, will consider the migration issues for enterprise customers and providers, including Telcos offering new value-added services alongside MPLS, plus the solutions offered by SD-WAN system vendors and the new generation of Cloud Networks and Services now entering the market.
