Control. We all want control of our network and the solutions we offer to carry the data communications it enables. The only way a company can get full control is if they have the core, base fiber – ‘dark fiber.’ Dark fiber is the raw fiber, in the ground, along a specific route that is just waiting to be lit. It’s the Light, when the fiber is lit, that enables the carriage of data communications. Routes can be diverse, but the most control is on the electronics and equipment that companies use to light the fiber. With a variety of very capable and leading vendors to choose from – the control is all yours.

Moore’s Law and IP Transit and Transport Pricing

By |2010-02-08T22:42:26-05:00February 8th, 2010|Categories: Blogs, Broadband, cloud computing, Ethernet, General, Global Telecommunications, IP transit, JS&A News, Telecom, Telecommunications, Virtualization, Wholesale Carrier, Wholesale Telecom|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I was reminded that Moore’s law is actually playing itself out within the IP transit and IP transport space. We have all seen the trends of IP transit price declining. As a matter of fact, discussions on a variety of LinkedIn Groups cite prices as low as $4 per mbps. During my days as the Director of IP Services at Band-X, Inc. I couldn’t make a decent profit if I sold transit below $100 per mbps - $4 seems absurd, but it’s not.
