Why Telcos Have Their Heads in the Cloud

Welcome to Research Rewind, a weekly recap of published telecom research and blogs from Pyramid Research and Heavy Reading.

This week we get an extreme (cloud) makeover, update our reports on MNI and 4G/LTEI, stick up for the little guy, spot an untapped growth opportunity for Iranian operators and wonder aloud why SuperCDNs haven't gotten traction. It's all this week in Research Rewind. 

  • Heavy Reading has three upcoming research reports you should know about. The first research report, coming out today, is "The Cloud Platform Makeover: Buy It, Don't Build It." This report looks at telco requirements for a service provider cloud platform and how vendors are meeting those needs. Read all the Heavy Reading reports here.

  • Heavy Reading is also launching their second MNI report of the year next Tuesday, and coming next Thursday is Heavy Reading's second 4G/LTEI report of the year. Read all the Heavy Reading reports here.

  • Stay tuned in the coming weeks for Pyramid Research Country Intelligence Reports (CIRs) that provide trusted five-year telecom market forecasts on Brazil, Argentina, Russia, Canada, Algeria and more. You can see all our published CIRs for over 60 markets here.

  • Score one for the little guy? Read Pyramid Analyst Emily Smith's blog post, "Cricket Chirping: Winners in AT&T/T-Mobile Deal."

  • And what about growth opportunities for Iranian operators? Read Pyramid Senior Analyst Hussam Barhoush's blog post, "Iran Market Players Need More Farsi Content"

  • Why haven't service providers created a new and better content delivery network model? In a Heavy Reading note -- "What's Holding Back the SuperCDNs?" -- Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Aditya Kishore explains.
That's Research Rewind for this week. Until next Friday, we'll see you online at Pyramid Research and Heavy Reading. May the telecom be with you!
