By Thomas SimpsonFeb 11, 2016


With the announcement that Tata Communications will divest from the data center business, it becomes the latest carrier to indicate an exit from the colocation market. Understanding the changing colocation landscape is more important than ever. If these trends are taking you by surprise, let TeleGeography's VP of Strategy, Stephan Beckert, help to make sense of this news.

Drawing from data in TeleGeography's Colocation Database and Colocation Pricing Service, Stephan offered an analysis of the latest trends in global colocation markets at PTC (Pacific Telecommunications Council) in Honolulu, Hawaii, this past January. Watch the recording of the presentation below to hear Stephan's outlook for the industry.
