Communications Services: Hot or Not

Service providers today are looking to determine where best to deploy capital and get the most bang for their buck. Over the past 3 years we’ve spoken to and surveyed over 30,000 IT decision makers at businesses from 1-person shops to Fortune 100 companies on what communications services they are buying and looking to buy.

The Hot List:

  • Ethernet services
    • Today’s Ethernet services provide the bandwidth and virtual routing capabilities required to support key applications that are becoming increasingly strategic business investments.
  • Fiber to the premises
    • As fiber optic cables are able to carry much more data than copper cables, especially over long distances, copper telephone networks built in the 20th century are being replaced by fiber
  • Business class services
    •  These are the services that delight customers because they have more speed, greater capacity, and new features; ultimately the customer has more capabilities. 
    • One business class service you need to be offering is UCaaS. There is a huge demand for UCaaS, and if you aren’t offering it your customers are likely already getting it from someone else.
  • Interconnection
    • By connecting your network to other networks you can increase its value and the value it can deliver to you down the road. To interconnect you’ll need to have a standard service offering you can provide to carriers.
