Orange Business Services maintains top rank in Mid-Year 2017 Global Provider Ethernet LEADERBOARD
Date: 12 September 2017
Orange retains the top rank.
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.
Based on mid-year 2017 port share results, Orange Business Services continues to rank as the top company on the Global Provider Ethernet LEADERBOARD.
"With our strong network expertise, we are committed to deliver an agile and secure connectivity to our customers. Orchestration across multiple partners is also essential to combine innovative and performant services for an application-driven network.
"Demand for global Ethernet networking continues to expand. As retail Ethernet providers extend their network footprints through partners worldwide, the growth outlook for wholesale services is increasing,” said Rick Malone, principal at Vertical Systems Group.
"Orchestration across multiple provider networks is the top challenge constraining new service deployments, according to our research. This obstacle is being addressed through collaboration among industry players and standards organizations, including efforts to standardize on open APIs and service specifications.”
