The PTC 2020 Countdown Is On


By Jayne MillerDec 11, 2019


Dearest readers: will we see you in Hawaii next month?

Our own Jon Hjembo, Brianna Boudreau, Tim Stronge, Alan Mauldin, Dave Eulitt, Shermaine Yung, and Robert Schult will be in Honolulu for the Pacific Telecommunications Council annual conference happening January 19-22, 2020.

Naturally, our conference presenters Brianna, Jon, and Tim are bringing lots of research.

TeleGeography's much-loved workshop will again serve up the latest trends and analysis on the data center market, international networks, and bandwidth pricing. It's happening January 19 at 2:00 p.m. Expect big questions, bad telecom puns, and—as always—lots and lots of data. Here's what we have on the docket:

Chasing Opportunity in the Data Center Market
As leading operators push into new frontiers, what potential can we see in nascent markets where they're breaking ground? And for customers evaluating hub data center locations, can we find markets that have consistent price advantages over others? We'll take a strategic look at a few of the issues facing operators and customers in the race to stay ahead in today's data center market.

International Networks & Systemic Risk
A handful of giant content providers are propping up undersea cable demand. To misappropriate Churchill, "Never was so much owed by so many to so few." But what are the risks to the industry? We'll explore whether we can expect growth to continue into the next decade.

TeleGeography Pricing Update
In telecom, there's one constant: prices always fall. But how are new investments, players, and technologies affecting international prices across markets? And what's the outlook for bandwidth buyers and sellers?
