These are the Telecom Stories You Read in 2018

With a few short weeks left in the year, today we're looking back at our most-read pieces of 2018.

This year you were clicking on all things 5G, anything about the future of submarine cables, and lots of cloud content. Below are 10 of our favorite posts, perhaps including some you might have missed over the last 12 months. 

Understanding WAN Design and Managed Services in the Age of SD-WAN

There’s been huge growth in corporate internet traffic in the last seven years.

We’ve seen the adoption of public cloud and software-as-a-service applications—and the subsequent migration of business applications to the public cloud.

During our recent WAN Summit Singapore, Orange Business Services (OBS) provided a peek behind the curtain of enterprise SD-WAN rollouts in this increasingly internet-centric environment.

Detmold Sees Ongoing Benefits of 2016 SD-WAN Deployment

In 2015, SD-WAN was not the phenomenon that it is today. But David Stork, IT infrastructure manager for multi-national manufacturer Detmold Group, was motivated to explore the then-emerging technology way back when.

It all started after he asked his MPLS provider about an upgrade.

BYOD is Shifting the Security Perimeter for WAN Managers

Of all of the areas covered by the WAN Summit, cyber security has got to be one of the hottest topics.

Five Insights from Enterprises at WAN Summit Frankfurt

Last month the WAN Summit came to Frankfurt for the first time. This inaugural event brought with it conversations about SD-WAN selection and implementation, cloud-based applications, and sourcing local access and broadband.

We were also thrilled to get feedback from our German audience about how they’re managing their networks, implementing SD-WAN, and juggling MPLS.

Below are five new findings from enterprise attendees at the Frankfurt summit. (For comparison, check out what we learned from our NY audience earlier this year.)

Upcoming Webinar: A Global SD-WAN Client's Journey

We probably don't need to tell you that our 2018 WAN Summit Singapore will feature more enterprise case studies. Previously, companies like CargillDHL, and Volex have used our Singapore summit to provide a first-hand look at how some of the region's largest enterprises manage their networks.

In that spirit, we'll be giving everyone a taste of our 2018 Singapore Summit next Wednesday, August 8. Join us for a webinar all about one client's global SD-WAN journey.

All Eyes on the Enterprise: The Latest in Ethernet VPN and SD-WAN

TeleGeography’s Cloud and WAN Infrastructure analyzes service and pricing trends for four key enterprise network services: virtual private networks (VPNs) based on internet protocol (IP) and multi-protocol label switching (MPLS); dedicated internet access (DIA); Ethernet VPN (EVPN); and Ethernet private line (EPL).

This analysis—which has recently been updated with new data—reviews these services and the developing software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) service.

Today we’re sharing the latest on Ethernet VPN and SD-WAN services. Click here to catch up on our recent post about MPLS IP VPN and DIA services.

Where Are the World's Cloud Data Centers and Who is Using Them?

TeleGeography’s Cloud and WAN Infrastructure details the international wide area network (WAN) services, cloud connectivity offerings, and cloud geographies of 170 WAN service providers.

Since the 2018 update is now available to our subscribers, we thought it would be a good time to take a closer look at who is connecting to the cloud and where cloud data centers are located based on our latest batch of data.

Webinar: Contracts and SLAs in the SD-WAN Environment

An SD-WAN enabled network transformation raises unique issues about the way enterprise customers source and contract these services.

Getting what you bargained for during contract negotiations is paramount. But so is maintaining flexibility in your legal arrangements to ensure that your organization maximizes the benefits of moving your network to an SD-WAN solution.
