Location: Coral 1 & 2
Now in its tenth year, TeleGeography’s International Telecom Trends Workshop has become one of PTC’s most popular sessions. The workshop, generously sponsored by PCCW Global, will highlight TeleGeography’s latest findings on the global wholesale and enterprise networks markets. The workshop will feature the following presentations:
"Where Networks Connect"
Colocation and data centers have been one of the strongest sectors in the international networks market. TeleGeography VP of Strategy Stephan Beckert will explore recent developments in regional data center markets, expansion plans of major providers, and trends in colocation service pricing.
"Wholesale Capacity and IP Transit Prices"
TeleGeography Senior Analyst Brianna Boudreau will examine trends in wholesale capacity and IP transit pricing. How have recent network investments and the deployment of 100 Gbps technology affected international prices? Why do vast geographic price disparities persist? What impact will emerging market players and technologies have on wholesale prices in the future?
"The Dystopian Future of International Networks"
Is Skynet inevitable? TeleGeography Research Director Alan Mauldin will review common traits of dystopias and consider portents of a potentially dystopian future for the international networks business. Key topics will include bandwidth demand drivers, the potential for capacity exhaustion, and wholesale price convergence.
"2016 Submarine Cable Map"
Workshop attendees will be the first to see TeleGeography’s 2016 Submarine Cable Map, which will be unveiled during the session. Each attendee will receive a complimentary folded copy.
