Networks Collide at the Pacific Telecommunications Council Annual Conference


By Jayne MillerDec 20, 2016


Interested in talking submarine cables and colocation centers with us next month?

Join us in Hawaii and dig into our latest research. 

Our own Brianna Boudreau, Jonathan Hjembo, Tim Stronge, Stephan Beckert, Alan Mauldin, Mike Owings, and Tristan Thibodeaux will venture to Honolulu for the Pacific Telecommunications Council annual conference happening January 15-18, 2017.

On Sunday, January 15, Brianna, Jon, and Tim will present their latest findings on trends in the international networks market.

Their workshop will feature the following presentations:

Where Networks Collide — Colocation and data centers have been among the strongest sectors in the international networks market.

This presentation will explore recent developments in regional data center markets, expansion plans of major providers, and trends in colocation service pricing.

New Boom = Future Gloom? — The submarine cable market is in the midst of a wave of cable construction and new project announcements.

What is driving this construction boom, and how will it affect the market? Are we heading towards another bandwidth bust?

The Pricing Limbo — Wholesale circuit and IP transit prices have been falling for years - but the pace varies widely and can determine the difference between profits and losses for carriers.

How are recent network investments, emerging market players, and the deployment of 100 Gbps technology affecting international prices? What markets are experiencing the biggest shifts and what is the outlook for bandwidth buyers and sellers?

If you're unable to make it to Honolulu - or warm, sandy beaches in the dead of winter just aren't your thing - you can still follow PTC and TeleGeography on Twitter for news and notes from the conference. And be sure to check the TG blog for videos and recaps of the event later in January.
