On March 5, 2020, industry interconnection specialists published the first-ever ‘Interconnection Playbook,’ which sets out to demystify interconnection, explore what the term means and outline the options available to companies embracing digital transformation. 

The Interconnect Playbook is a 36-page resource that is chock-full of information clarifying and quantifying interconnection options to help enterprise, carriers and global network operators better understand, define and leverage interconnection solutions for improved network performance, reach and control.  The Playbook was produced by Open Spectrum, a data center and cloud services consulting firm providing in-depth industry intelligence, experience and training to service providers and investors in mission-critical infrastructure, and MicroCorp, the premier value-added distributor of telecom and cloud solutions. Since 1986, they have simplified the purchase and management of telecommunications services for business customers with contributions from Structure Research, an independent research and consulting firm with a special focus on the internet infrastructure market. They publish insightful research and analysis with a uniquely informed perspective.  The Playbook was authored by Christian Koch and edited by Sean Patrick Tario with contributions from Jim Davis. They plan to update the Interconnection Playbook every six months.
