It turns out that birthday celebrations are in order.
Jayne is TeleGeography's Director of Marketing.
We were overdue to talk about what the future of hybrid work looks like—and what it means for WAN managers.
But our trusty WAN Forum team is on top of it. On Tuesday they invited some experts to gather and talk through the major work-from-home considerations that linger as some employees start to head back into the office and others continue to operate remotely.
Guess what? We upgraded our Interactive Submarine Cable Map.
Your favorite cable resource—currently sponsored by HMN Tech—now depicts a huge 487 global cables and 1,304 unique landing stations. Even better, we layered in new functionality to search and select multiple cables, landing points, countries, RFS years, and suppliers.
We've been reading up on the myriad of cable updates that have been making headlines this summer. So it's no shock that our August list of reading recs leads off with news about Facebook's latest undersea investments, including their involvement in the recently-announced Apricot project.
As we dig into technical standards and definitions, MEF has come up several times on this show. It was only a matter of time before we put them in the hot seat.
Here's the long and short of it: Africa leads the globe in international bandwidth growth. (You can read more of our sublime global bandwidth findings over here.)
With a lightning-fast growth rate and eight new cables in the works, this is an emerging market with network infrastructure projects to watch. So when it comes to bandwidth in Africa, we have a lot to talk about.
Who here has been keeping up with season 2 of the WAN Manager Podcast? If you haven't been listening, there's no time like the present to catch up.
We collected five stellar first-person stories from the WAN managers who have popped by the pod over the last year. These experts relate their perspectives on everything from security to SD-WAN adoption, network transformation, and MPLS.
Keep scrolling to take in their use cases. And head over here to find all of our recent episodes.
We wanted to pop by and share a few summer stories that our team has been reading lately.
We suggest you start with the Foreign Policy number we linked below. This piece prods at the geography of digitalization—more specifically, the "systemic vulnerabilities across public and private networks and dangerous weaknesses in supply chains."
Listeners know that we've covered middle mile and NaaS on this show. And we've touched on the various companies that are emerging around these issues. Today we're getting extra perspective from one of those companies.
