Case Studies of Top Participants and the Role of Value-added Services

This research study analyzes market trends for data communication services in Latin America. Value-added and Internet technology services provided over data communications networks are identified and examined, and growth opportunities are provided. Further, this study analyzes the main case studies in Latin America of the following major participants: Level 3, Telefónica, Orange Business Services, and British Telecom Global Services.

Executive Summary

•Average revenue per line (ARPL) for Latin American data communications services has been declining in recent years due to competition, migration from legacy circuits to Internet protocol (IP) technologies, expense control by enterprises, and governments.
•Connectivity and badwidth have become commodities in the data communications market. To differentiate themselves, telecommunications companies (telcos) have been bundling services to provide complete solutions while also offering value-added Internet technology (IT) services to increase shares in enterprise accounts.
•Value-added services (VAS) include network performance management; acceleration; managed security services (MSS); content delivery networks (CDN); unified communications, and collaboration (UCC); and mobility—all of which are increasingly important for enterprise customers.
•Cloud computing is an important VAS with special appeal to small and medium companies (SMBs) that are adopting dedicated Internet connections. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is X% for cloud computing between 2012 and 2017.
•MSS, CDN, and data center segments also have high CAGRs between 2012 and 2017 at X%, X%, and X%, respectively.
•Case studies for British Telecom (BT), Level 3, Orange, and Telefónica are presented in this Hot Topic in order to illustrate market strategies. Profiles are provided in terms of geographic coverage, network infrastructure, and customer base. Finally, the most popular technologies are analyzed, namely IP/multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) and dedicated IP.
