Colocation

What's in a Name? The Colocation Database is Now the Data Center Research Service.

This is a brief service announcement for our colocation-inclined readers. As of today, our beloved Colocation Database is now the Data Center Research Service.

Is the Data Center Shifting from the Hub to the Edge?

There's been plenty of talk about the vital importance of edge as it relates to new types of network configurations. We're anticipating plenty of new applications coming down the pike, from 5G to all things AI.

This was on Jon Hjembo's mind as he explored TeleGeography's take on the edge during our annual telecom workshop last month.

The Adaptive Network™: From Ocean’s Edge to the Network Edge

As demand for digital content surges, technologies borne in the data center world are quickly finding their way into the networks that interconnect them overland and undersea—and from the core to the edge.

In keeping up with this demand, new markets and regions are emerging as strategic peering hubs for the delivery of content. And the creation of new diverse submarine cable routes feeds the growth of both existing and new peering hubs.

Webinar: Diving into the Data Center Interconnect Seascape

Global bandwidth consumption has grown exponentially in recent years due in large part to massive amounts of content being generated by internet content providers. (Cat videos, anyone?) 

This growth isn’t slowing down any time soon. It's actually driving the need for more data centers and network capacity to interconnect them—overland and undersea.

Join TeleGeography's Jon Hjembo and Ciena's Brian Lavallée on April 25 for an update on the latest data center trends driving subsea connectivity growth.

Potential Warning Signs in the Colocation Market

During the 2018 Pacific Telecommunications Council Annual Conference, Director of Colocation Research Jon Hjembo treated attendees to an outlook of the colocation market. His presentation looked past recent headlines to take a more scrutinizing look at the industry, identifying potential flags for the networking world.

So—are there things we should be worried about?
