Vertical Systems: 2015 Global Provider Ethernet LEADERBOARD

Orange Business Services (France) topped Vertical Systems Group’s year-end 2015 Global Provider Ethernet LEADERBOARD.  Other top entries in rank order included Colt (U.K.), BT Global Services (U.K.), AT&T (U.S.), Verizon (U.S.), Level 3 (U.S.) and NTT (Japan). The Global Provider LEADERBOARD, the industry’s benchmark for multinational Ethernet network market presence, ranks companies that hold a 4% or higher share of billable retail ports at sites outside of their respective home countries.

The Challenge Tier of Global Providers includes companies with share between 2% and 4% of this defined market. Seven companies qualify for the Challenge Tier (in alphabetical order): Cogent (U.S.), Global Cloud Xchange (India), SingTel (Singapore), T-Systems (Germany), Tata Communications (India), Telefonica Worldwide (Spain) and Vodafone (U.K.).

“Deployments by Ethernet providers outside their home countries rose thirteen percent in 2015, indicating steady footprint expansion and network globalization,” said Rick Malone, principal at Vertical Systems Group. “In addition to more extensive coverage for their global customers, carriers focused on speed and functionality enhancements, as well as the introduction of new SDN-enabled service capabilities.”

A list of Global Providers with port share below 2% is online.
