About the Report
The TCL New Telco Data Centre – Pricing for the New Telecoms Data Centre – 2014 to 2019 report analyses the market for Telecommunications Data Centres (Carrier Based Data Centres) which are facilities that are owned by a Telecoms Provider.
TCL provides a definition of the New Telco Data Centre used for the purposes of this report below:
“The New Telco Data Centre is defined as being a facility that can provide multiple services and uses with different grades of service and power. Multiple halls – or modular zones – are being constructed to cater for the provision of network equipment, hosting, colocation & housing and managed services. The Data Centre can cater for both the Telco’s own services and third party enterprise users. And for enterprise users different grades of power and SLA can be provided to meet different price points or requirements”.
The use of Data Centre facilities by the Telco has changed over time, from being a supplementary service to house telecoms equipment and provide cross connects to becoming a core service, which enables new revenue streams, including Hosting, Cloud & Managed Services. As the Telecoms Data Centre role has changed from being a pure colocation and housing facility to the provision of value added services, the term New Telco Data Centre can be used.
The report is based on a survey of 57 Telecoms Providers with Data Centre facilities based across 33 countries worldwide. The Telecoms Providers included in the survey meet the following criteria:
Build, own & operate their own Telco Data Centre facilities
Provide a wide range of services from their own Data Centre facilities
