Tour the Data Behind Our Latest Global Internet Map

Step right up. Today we're touring TeleGeography's latest Global Internet Map. (For your safety, please keep your hands, arms, and legs inside the vehicle at all times.)

The Tortoise and the Fiber Pair

A new subsea cable between Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands leads our list of telecom stories this month.

Expected to be ready for service by 2022, it's not just tortoises who will enjoy improved capacity. The project will "provide significant benefits for tourism, scientific research, education, and commerce in the region."

What is Internet Middle Mile?

We had a feeling that our expert team would deliver a winning discussion during our TeleGeography Deep Dive on internet middle mile.

And disappoint, they did not.

With middle mile emerging as one of the next major topics of interest for global enterprises, our event appropriately started with the explainer of all explainers on this new market segment. (And, yes, we recorded the overview for our readers who couldn't make the live event.)

The Hyperscalers Have Arrived

Tech giants are investing in submarine cables, sure. But you already know that part of the story.

It gets interesting when we look closer at the number of cables hyperscalers are investing in, for how much, and where. 

2021 Trends in Cloud Infrastructure and Global Networks

Any day that ends in "y" is a good one to explore cloud networks. (New TeleGeography slogan?)

But that's exactly what's happening in Patrick Christian's latest presentation, which reviews underlying cloud infrastructure, its evolution, and its impact on global networks. 

2021 Global Internet Map Tracks Global Capacity, Traffic, and Cloud Infrastructure

There's so much information packed into our 2021 Global Internet Map that you might not know where to start.

You could begin by digging into the 35% growth we saw in international internet capacity—from around 450 Tbps to over 600 Tbps—between 2019 and 2020. 

Or you could scope out regional connectivity intel, noting that Europe is the region with the highest regional capacity; it also saw the largest growth from 2019 to 2020.

How Data Centers Adapted to Disruption in 2020

The data center sector rose to the challenge of 2020.

This was Jon Hjembo's opening message during his review of the interconnection sector during PTC '21.  

Stuck in the Middle Mile With You

A new class of network provider has emerged, optimizing connectivity between the office and the cloud. What do they offer? How do they do it? And what’s happening between the core backbone and local access?

TeleGeography Principal Analyst Erik Kreifeldt is in the house and Greg is asking the big questions about internet middle mile.

Data Center Matchmaking: Finding Your Dream Combo of Connectivity and Cost

🎶Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find a facility
That's a real catch
Matchmaker, Matchmaker
Knows what I need,
The most connectivity🎶 

Remote Work After COVID-19

Our interests often find a way into our research. And that happened in 2020, as our genuine curiosity around the future of the workplace came up across our research catalog.

We covered COVID-related changes in bandwidth demand, WAN-related challenges to going remote, and data center impacts—all relevant topics to the evolution of the modern office.

It's no surprise, then, that we were fascinated by a new analysis of 800 different jobs.
