TeleGeography Deep Dives: Internet Middle Mile

Pricing Conferences

By Jayne MillerFeb 11, 2021


Over the last year we've learned a lot about internet middle mile—that mysterious space between the office and the cloud.

Our team looked closer at what happens between core backbone and local access. We explored provider types, cloud connectivity, and adoption use cases.

And we can't wait to share our findings.  

That's why on Thursday, March 4 we're assembling a team of experts to dive into all things middle mile.

On the agenda:

  • The Basics: Get an overview of the middle mile network segment, types of providers, and use cases in a presentation from TeleGeography Principal Analyst Erik Kreifeldt.
  • Maneuvering Through the Middle Mile: A panel of experts will discuss the best strategies for addressing application performance, agile procurement and provisions, and multi-cloud connectivity.
  • Ask Us About Middle Mile: We'll finish our morning with all of your burning middle mile questions.

Our panel of experts is growing by the minute. You can expect insight from:
