When we thought about our first Spotlight interview of 2017, we wanted to do something that looked at the surging investment in new submarine cables.
I’ve been involved with TeleGeography’s research on submarine cables since 2000. Over the years I’ve fielded numermous questions about the submarine cable industry from journalists, investors, family, and friends.
It seems as good a time as any to provide a compilation of answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.
Last year Ethernet turned 43 – and it remains one of the most widely-used local area network technologies.
And as far as telecoms history goes, few modern tools have a naming story quite like Ethernet’s.
We went 12 years without building a new cable in the Atlantic. In the last two years we've seen two builds, another announced, and more planned.
This might be why our VP of Research Tim Stronge recently asked a group of PTC 2017 attendees if we're in a submarine cable bubble.
If you thought we weren't going to be reading and sharing stories in 2017 about telecoms, maps, and technology, then you'd be very wrong. Here's a glimpse at what we've been sinking our teeth into this month.
Brian Lavellée, Director of Portfolio Marketing at Ciena, posed this question to webinar-watchers last Wednesday. How great would it be if you got an advanced warning prior to a submarine cable going down?
Brian was joined by TeleGeography Senior Analyst Brianna Boudreau to tackle this idea and others about the cable business.
You’ve always been told to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Better believe that those in telecommunications have been told the same thing.
Perhaps that’s why you’ve heard of “protected” and “unprotected” circuits.
We had a good time combining our research, the latest headlines, and a hearty dose of telecoms history in our blog this year.
Here's a look back at 10 of our favorite pieces from 2016.
TeleGeography’s latest research tells a story about soaring submarine network bandwidth and eroding prices for transoceanic bandwidth services.
Digital transformation – which Interoute CTO Matthew Finnie defines as “using technology to get closer to the market and supply chain” – is becoming an important initiative for enterprises.
