Zeroing in on the Trans-Atlantic Submarine Corridor

Ah, the great Atlantic.

It's the world's second-largest body of water and the most heavily trafficked route in terms of submarine cable capacity.

It also happens to be TeleGeography VP of Research Tim Stronge's favorite ocean.

Tim told us as much during a recent Ciena webinar, where he gave a live presentation all about the Trans-Atlantic Submarine Corridor.

How Enterprises Are Implementing NaaS (And Leaving MPLS)

While NaaS and the middle mile are still fairly new concepts, they're not new to the WAN Manager Podcast.

In episodes past, you've seen—or rather, heard—us shine a spotlight on the framework, concept, market players, and products available.

So let's look at things from another perspective.

Ukraine’s Inbound Voice Traffic Is Surging. Here’s How We Know.

You already know that Ukrainians are taking to platforms like Twitter, Telegram, and TikTok to share the sights and sounds of Russia’s invasion.

But here’s a new development: in just one month, carriers have clocked a sevenfold increase in international voice traffic to Ukraine.

Untying the Gordian Knot, Unlocking Your Future Network

The TeleGeography team began benchmarking networks almost a decade ago. (Time flies when you're having fun!)

Back then, the big use case was making sure that carrier and customer were on the same page about how much MPLS and access prices had fallen over the life of a contract—and how far prices would probably fall in the next several years.

How Can Submarine Networks Manage Surging Demand?

Earlier this year, TeleGeography VP of Research Tim Stronge gave a very fashionable presentation on the submarine cable buildout boom.

Tim's presentation zeroed in on bandwidth demand—or more specifically, what's driving it? Now it’s time to focus on where innovations are happening the fastest: the Atlantic.

OnJune 2 at 11:00 a.m. ET, Tim will meet with experts from Ciena and Lumen for a live discussion on how submarine networks can scale to manage this surging demand.

Another Reason To Love Submarine Cables

If you've seen our famous Submarine Cable Map, you can probably guess that the TeleGeography team geeks out on submarine cable knowledge.

And although there's a lot to know, we still get excited when cables come up in the news. 

So it’s no surprise that our latest list of telecom reading recs starts off with a story about submarine cables—and their potential to detect earthquakes. 

The State of the WAN in 2022

Live from New York, it's the WAN Summit!

On Tuesday, June 21, WAN Summit New York will be live and in-person to cover the full spectrum of WAN management.

And you may see a familiar face on the agenda—TeleGeography’s Senior Manager of Enterprise Research (and Podcast Host Extraordinaire) Greg Bryan will be in attendance.

Dedicated Cloud Connectivity Pricing, Demystified

Major Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) offer dedicated, private network connections to their services. These connections complement enterprise WANs with secure, high-performance connectivity.

Today, we'll examine dedicated connection pricing.

Two Truths and a Lie: Submarine Cable Edition

In honor of Subsea World 2022 happening next month, let's play two truths and a lie: submarine cable edition.

One of these three statements is false:
