Current Analysis Releases New Global Network Coverage Information on Cloud Data Center and SIP Trunking
Leading market intelligence firm expands its Global Network Tracker service coverage in response to service provider and enterprise requirements
Sterling, VA, USA – June 19, 2014 – Current Analysis, Inc., a leading provider of timely, practical market intelligence and advice for the global IT and telecom industries, announced today new data points added to its Global Network Tracker service. Key findings include BT as the market leader with the largest global cloud-enabled data center footprint and Orange Business Services with the largest global SIP trunking coverage. The new analysis reveals key insights into infrastructure presences and global service coverage of the major IT and network providers targeting multinationals.
“Global multinational customers have to be very demanding when seeking network and IT services in order to remain competitive,” commented Joel Stradling, Research Director, Current Analysis Business Network and IT Services. “Reach, performance and comprehensive managed ICT offerings are important considerations, as well as all-important trust in the supplier-customer relationship. The average MNC IT manager is very focused on deploying new global sites and reducing costs by moving more appliances into the cloud, sourcing cost-effective local access and achieving top level performance for critical applications via direct presence MPLS PoPs. Hence, in-country operations as well as own infrastructure and partner capabilities with third-party network suppliers are further key buying criteria.”
Stradling continued, “The recent update, part of the regular six-month update cycle for the Global Network Tracker, demonstrates carrier momentum in building out global MPLS reach and the steady expansion of availability of Ethernet access. In this update, Current Analysis has also incorporated new information, adding value to the tracker at no extra cost, to uncover service provider footprints for cloud-enabled data centers and SIP trunking.”
The Current Analysis Global Network Tracker service is designed to help service providers bid more effectively on global network deals for enterprise customers and to source partners more effectively. Operators can also use the data to identify geographies for future infrastructure investments. Enterprise customers can use the tool to better understand the comparative differences of their global network suppliers’ reach and access capabilities, as well as use the service as a guide in their buying decisions.
“This new analysis is our response to help IT managers and service providers understand which operators have on-net coverage for network services such as MPLS and Ethernet,” noted Cindy Whelan, Principal Analyst, Current Analysis Business Network and Wholesale Services. “The content now goes one extra step with new data points that show cloud-enabled data center footprints and SIP trunking coverage. Being able to offer competitive local cloud computing service and more compelling unified communications offerings hinges upon cloud data center and SIP trunk reach.”
The Current Analysis Global Network Tracker service is a comprehensive database that lists the locations where leading carriers offer MPLS, Ethernet, SIP trunking, satellite and cloud-enabled data centers worldwide. It includes additional insight into service and infrastructure coverage such as MPLS NNIs, VSAT earth stations, SIP PSTN replacement, and local Ethernet and DSL access coverage.
