Status Advisory: Year-End 2013 Ethernet LEADERBOARDs

January 14, 2014

Vertical Systems Group’s LEADERBOARDs are industry benchmarks for recognizing Service Providers based on market presence. Year-end 2013 share results will be released soon for the U.S. and Global Provider Ethernet services markets, as well as for three U.S. provider segments – Incumbent Carrier, Competitive Provider, and Cable MSO.

Our Year-End 2013 Service Provider Survey was distributed last week to hundreds of network operators throughout the world. This survey collects key information covering Ethernet and Dedicated IP VPN services installations and trends, as well as Cloud Connectivity offerings. All detailed responses remain confidential. Survey response data is correlated with our independent research on enterprise customer installations and purchase plans. This information is utilized to update Vertical’s market models, as well as to calculate Ethernet LEADERBOARD market share rankings.

All providers completing this survey may opt in to obtain their company’s confidential share information based on final year-end 2013 results. Subscribers to ENS @Ethernet Market Analysis and Markets + Migration Research Programs have full access to detailed Ethernet share results plus market quantification and analysis.

If you represent a Service Provider and do not already receive our Ethernet and IP VPN Surveys, please contact us. See LEADERBOARD releases for previous share results and more on methodology.
