Global Internet Capacity Reaches 77 Tbps Despite Slowdown

September 06, 2012

New data from TeleGeography’s Global Internet Geography research reveal that international Internet capacity growth fell to the lowest pace in five years, decreasing from 68 percent in 2008 to 40 percent in 2012. While the pace of growth is slowing, international Internet bandwidth continues to grow rapidly, more than doubling between 2010 and 2012, to 77 Tbps.

 

International Internet Bandwidth Growth, 2008-2012

Decelerating network capacity growth rates are mirrored in slowing rates of peak and average international Internet traffic growth. Average international Internet traffic grew 35 percent in 2012, down from 39 percent in 2011, and peak traffic grew 33 percent, well below the 57 percent increase recorded in 2011. International Internet traffic and capacity growth rates are declining due to a combination of factors, including slowing broadband subscriber growth in mature markets, and the expansion of content delivery networks (CDNs) and local caching technologies, which reduce the need for new long-haul capacity by storing popular content closer to the end-users. Nevertheless, the underlying drivers of bandwidth demand remain strong. Broadband penetration rates in developing markets remain modest, leaving substantial room for new subscriber growth. In more mature markets, where the pace of broadband subscriber growth has slowed, faster broadband speeds and the growing adoption of bandwidth-intensive applications, most notably online video, are spurring higher traffic volumes per user.

With the exception of a few developing countries, the days of triple-digit annual growth rates are long past. However, even with the use of CDNs and caching technologies, the compounding effect of rapid traffic growth will continue to require carriers to make considerable investments to expand network capacity.

TeleGeography’s Global Internet Geography research service is a comprehensive source of data and analysis about international Internet capacity, traffic, service providers, ASN connectivity, and pricing. It provides:

  • Profiles of 103 Internet backbone operators
  • International Internet traffic data for 32 major countries and capacity and detailed indicator data for 75 countries
  • U.S. domestic bandwidth data from 2003-2012 and traffic data from 2008-2012
  • In-depth analysis of global and regional wholesale Internet pricing trends
  • Autonomous System Number (ASN) connectivity analysis and rankings of backbone operators’ downstream IP address connectivity by region, country, and ISP

TeliaSonera Expands to Latin America and The Caribbean

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADespite the continuing crisis in Europe, uncertain US outlook and economic downturn of Asian markets, Latin America and the Caribbean regions have experienced a steady growth in the communications services arena and there seem to be no signs of cessation. The regions still lag behind the world’s most advanced nations in terms of coverage, information access and adoption, and communication technology. The success of this marketplace is highly dependent on differentiation, anywhereization and total global connectivity.

TeliaSonera International Carrier is at the technological forefront of this movement, ideally positioned to serve the market segments’ constantly changing and ever-growing demand as one of the world’s largest carriers of voice and data traffic, and provider of global, turnkey infrastructure, IP transit and Wavelength capacity solutions.

Thousands of leading cable operators, local carriers and PTTs are focusing their efforts on the paths to narrow the Latin American and Caribbean regions’ digital divide. The resurgence has sparked a demand for capacity upgrades to connect it to the Americas’ Network Access Point (NAP) as well as New York’s largest data centers.  New construction of submarine cable is underway, along with additional fiber deployment in order to support demand in areas surrounding regional gateways as well as wider adoptions of carrier ethernet, delivering greater bandwidth, enhanced capacity administration and holistic demand support.

“As well as being an emerging financial marketplace, the increased purchasing power of consumers in the region has seen competition intensify between fixed and mobile operators jostling to become the broadband provider of choice,” stated Edison De Leon, Regional Manager, Latam and Caribbean, at TeliaSonera International Carrier.  “The bundling of formerly separate services, rapid adoption of smart phones and emerging applications such as cloud computing and outsourcing is expected to drive double-digit growth this year in communications traffic and investment.”

Most of these organizations need to integrate their capacity with a Tier-1 partner to build a global solution for end users and “transport capacity from regional gateways to other US POPs,” De Leon says. TeliaSonera offers a fully redundant US network, a fully-owned and operated fiber optic infrastructure and comprehensive connectivity solutions in the forms of global internet, wholesale voice and mobile SMS, IPX and GRX and collocation in order to satisfy such needs.  The company is also a core supporter of carrier expansion into new markets, holding over 200 POPs across the US, Asia and Europe. 

Picking Up Speed! FiberMedia Introduces Project Velocity

Want to earn a fast buck?  FiberMedia’s new Project Velocity program is aimed at just that.  And not just a fast buck – a big buck.  With the demand of colocation and data center services – especially throughout the metro market – referral opportunities are a premium.  FiberMedia gets this – and will ensure that its agent and reseller partners know that they do.  Project Velocity is changing the way referral and reseller partners get paid.

Earn a 20% Commission!

Project Velocity doubles the commission typically offered to agent and reseller partners from 10% to 20%.  This is truly a game changer – John Panzica, SVP of Sales and Marketing clarifies, ““We are doubling agent commissions from 10% to 20% while maintaining our competitive pricing and delivering high velocity service. Our installations are executed within days to ensure that our agents and resellers are reimbursed promptly.”

This unprecedented increase in renumeration for partners is attributed to FiberMedia’s ongoing success in the market.  It has recently announced that its facilities received their SSAE 16 certification.  A couple of months ago, the company announced a significant expansion in Secaucus, NJ within one of its key data centers.  Futhermore, the company’s flexible cloud-based solutions, proximity to key financial markets in the NY Metro market and its disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for mid-to large-sized enterprise businesses makes FiberMedia truly ‘the intelligent data center.’
