Independent data, insight, and strategy consulting to network operators and their technology partners

Our three core offerings


Our research reports quantify global network infrastructure (GNI) spending across telecom, webscale/cloud, and carrier-neutral markets. By assessing the key companies and technologies shaping telecom, cloud and IoT markets, we help clients profit from market volatility. Clients of our GNI subscription service receive all reports.

Market data

We track network infrastructure spending and vendor share across companies representing over $3 Trillion in annual revenues. This generates thousands of data points each quarter, across multiple industry segments. Clients have several ways to access this data.


We advise clients in scenario planning, market sizing & forecasting, capital management, benchmarking, M&A due diligence, and marketing strategy. We bring experience and independence to the table, and access to the proprietary databases generated by our GNI subscription program.
