As we look back on 2015, I see it as a year of change and transition for our business, for our industry, and for our competitors as well as our customers. Competition in the market is being driven by opportunities in hosted solutions and ‘as a service’ offerings, while pure point-to-point connectivity is reducing as a driver of new growth. Cloud-based services began to show signs of long-awaited maturity in 2015. Questions around security and availability have largely been answered, and service provider customers are excited by the opportunity to adopt opex-driven models and to use the freedom afforded by this approach to explore new paths to long-term profitability. There is an openness to cloud-based services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and the whole range of ‘as a service’ models. In a similar fashion, software-defined networks (SDN) have accelerated access to bandwidth and computing resources.
