World Data Networks Report

Overview

58 pages, PDF format.

The BRC World Data Networks report compares the full range of services that global network service providers now offer multinational customers. These providers have been adding new capabilities in growing areas of cloud computing, IoT and on-demand networking, while continuing to extend their network and data center infrastructures.

The report covers the largest global providers: AT&T, BT, Deutsche Telekom, Level 3, NTT, Orange, Verizon and Vodafone. The services covered include:

  • Network services such as IP VPN, Ethernet, VoIP and high-definition video.
  • IoT and on-demand networking capabilities.
  • Data center and cloud services such as IaaS and cloud-ready links to cloud service partners.

Comparisons using customer buying criteria are presented in more than 40 detailed tables and charts. These show features of individual services from different providers side-by-side, giving readers an immediate view of what to expect from typical service providers and highlighting which service providers match particular customer needs.

All comparisons are fact-based and transparent. The geographical coverage comparisons focus on countries and cities where service providers have control rather than simple PoP counts or claims that may include partner networks.

World Data Networks helps anyone requiring a detailed understanding of the competitive landscape including multinational network buyers seeking the best providers and services for their needs, or service providers seeking competitive advantage.

It saves the time and cost of researching the market yourself. World Data Networks has been refined and updated over many years by drawing on multiple data sources, discussions with service providers, and experience of helping clients evaluate and buy services.
