Evolution of telcos geographical expansion

Until recently it was common for growing carriers to deploy remote point-of-presence in the country of interest. Main purpose of such deployment was to realize savings from running TDM circuits and also get perceived advantages associated with “presence” in the country of interest.

Such business model is now replaced by “carrier hotels” – large carrier-neutral colocation facilites and, increasingly, by hosted switching service that combines colocation services and equipment rental/leasing.

Network expansion evolution got on a way of lowering capital expenses and lowering operational risk. Hosted switching solutions provide zero capital expediture solution with expenses tight to revenues from the new project.
