It's a big week for map resources around here.

Allow us to add one more into the mix: our new, free Cloud Infrastructure Map.

2Africa is Coming

Lots of submarine cable chatter this week around the announcement of 2Africa, the latest cable from owners Facebook, Vodafone, MTN Group, China Mobile, WIOCC, Orange, Telecom Egypt, and Saudi Telecom.

We pulled several stories about the Facebook-backed cable, what it means for connectivity in the region, and how much folks expect it to cost. Keep scrolling for more.

The COVID-19 Impact on Data Centers

In our research, we think a lot about the nature of interconnection.

And in our ongoing effort to gauge the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global networks, we wanted to highlight what’s happening in the nodes where interconnection takes place—data centers. 

We spoke with experts across the market to get a sense of how they’re working through the crisis. They gave us insight on how the situation is affecting demand, operations, supply, and new construction. 

WAN Service and Pricing Trends for 2020

Understanding Peering

Today we answer the burning question "what is peering and how does it work?"

Data Center Interconnect Goes Undersea: Addressing Voracious Submarine Bandwidth Growth

The majority of new submarine capacity upgrades and cable deployments are designed to address the voracious growth in data flowing between large data centers via submerged information superhighways.

There is simply no networking technology that comes close to optical networks in terms of scalability, reliability, and economies of scale. This means, that as an industry, we must continue to rapidly innovate upon submarine optical networking technology today, and well into the future.

Key Trends in an Evolving Global Bandwidth Sector

What does the future hold for the global bandwidth market? The two most predictable trends are persistent demand growth and price erosion.

Beyond that, operators will have to navigate major uncertainties in continuing to move forward in an evolving sector. Here are a few of the key trends, among many, that will affect the long-haul capacity market in the coming years.

Six Presentations, Lots of Lessons for WAN Managers

We've learned a lot about WAN management through our involvement with the WAN Summit. Perhaps you've read some of our major takeaways after each of these events around the globe.

Today we're revisiting six conversations that showcase the breadth of challenges faced by WAN managers. These full-session videos cover the cloud, hybrid WAN implementation, security, sourcing, and other network headaches. They also represent discussions in all corners of the globe, from Singapore to Frankfurt to New York.

Four Enterprise Network Services. Four New Trends.

TeleGeography's Cloud and WAN Infrastructure is hot off of the press with new data and analysis for 2019.
