Global Network Infrastructure (GNI) Subscription

What is GNI?

  • MTN Consulting bundles all of its published research into a subscription service called “Global Network Infrastructure”. GNI provides clients with a holistic view of the network operator business, while assessing the big shifts that impact technology spending trends.
  • GNI covers over 190 network operators across three market segments: telecommunications, webscale (aka hyperscale), and carrier-neutral. Some of our research is focused on individual segments, but we also help clients understand how the three segments work together and how that collaboration is changing over time. Our research also addresses the supply chain of vendors supporting the world’s networks, and includes both market share and competitive analysis.

What does GNI include?

  • Over 12 months, GNI subscribers receive 40+ reports. That includes detailed quantitative reports on the three network operator segments, and a range of analytic reports on key companies and trends impacting the GNI market. This steady stream of market intelligence is designed to help clients make smart business decisions, and arm them with valuable data and visuals on industry trends.
