Networking is our specialty.

Migration quoteVertical Systems Group provides in-depth analysis and defensible statistics on business data network services. Our specialty is the quantification of key migration trends – the ongoing transition to all-IP networks, the surge of higher bandwidth applications, the emergence of new enterprise mobility and cloud connectivity models, plus the impact of advanced technologies and solutions.

We offer industry-leading syndicated research plus a range of custom services. Since 1986, Vertical Systems Group’s resources have been utilized by equipment suppliers, service providers, large enterprises, financial entities and industry organizations throughout the world.

Our core strategic advice for clients focuses on the vertical integration of multiple business or technology processes. This concept was incorporated into Vertical Systems Group’s original logo, which was designed with a graphical V symbol to depict a vertical stack of interrelated and progressive processes. Our new logo is a refreshed version that reflects continued commitment to the company’s vision.

Real-World Perspective

What sets Vertical Systems Group apart from other analyst firms is that all of our market projections are inter-dependent, with particular emphasis on how legacy market segments are impacted by migration to emerging and competing technologies. This perspective was the basis of our company’s formation in Boston, led by the founders’ real world, entrepreneurial experience in the development, marketing and sale of network services and equipment.

Methodology-Picture1Vertical’s key tenet is that innovative technology isn’t sufficient to stimulate demand for new networking products and services. Understanding the underlying migration drivers is critical. Customers migrate to an emerging technology only when it offers improved functionality, measurable benefits and is easy to implement.

That’s why Vertical Systems Group’s proprietary methodology for sizing and projecting markets maps customer requirements to the supply of vendor solutions. And why we’ve actively tracked enterprise requirements, installation characteristics, purchase drivers and technology dynamics for more than twenty-five years. And why we do not rely solely on vendor-supplied information. And why we can explain what’s included in our market figures – and what isn’t. This time-proven approach has resulted in the most precise projections in the industry for market opportunities like Carrier Ethernet services, Dedicated IP VPNs, Frame Relay and ATM.
