Ask The Experts: What Defined The Industry in 2022?

Internet Pricing

By Jayne MillerDec 23, 2022


What will we remember about this year in telecommunications?

And what does the landscape look like as we kick off 2023?

Greg Bryan (and his rapidly color-changing beard*) posed these questions to six TeleGeography experts in a rousing two-part episode of TeleGeography Explains the Internet. You might have caught the first episode earlier this week.

We pulled a few major takeaways from these conversations to create a 2022 time capsule of sorts. Watch below as our team digs into global internet geography, pricing, data centers, submarine cables, SD-WAN, and industry headlines.

Look out for part two of our year-in-review podcast next week.

"We're Past the 2020 COVID Spike"

Patrick Christian highlights the major 2022 trends he saw in the world of global internet geography.

The Inflation Factor

What did we see in pricing for the layer 1-3 ecosystem from transport DWDM through WAN services—and even the overlay—in 2022? Research Director Rob Schult tells us what he saw this year.

A Year Defined by Data Center Regulation

Jon Hjembo gives us the rundown on the year in data centers and the new regulations that defined the landscape.

$10 Billion in Submarine Cables

When you want to talk about submarine cables, you talk to Alan Mauldin. Greg grilled Alan on the major cable developments of 2022 and the year ahead.

Can't Talk About SD-WAN Without Talking About Security

Curious about how the SD-WAN story continued in 2022? Brianna Boudreau jumps on the line with Greg to walk us through the trends.

Telecom, The Real World, and You

VP of Research Tim Stronge connects with Greg about major world events in 2022—disasters both natural and human in nature—and reflects on how they impacted the world of telecommunications.

Further, the pair look at the vital importance of fiber optic cables during these historic moments.

*But, really. What's up with Greg's beard turning white over the course of these six interviews? Is he okay? Is he stuck in a Tim-Allen-Santa-Clause situation? Mostly the latter. Greg gives the big guy some help this time of year, hence the new look.
