Thought Leadership Council Reports

Our Partners and companies with upgraded listings have the option of purchasing a report generated by the Thought Leadership Council (TLC), a unique research initiative. TLC is a select group of 140+ communications service providers (CSPs) with network-level expertise.

Council members take part in surveys and interviews about key communications trends and technologies. TLC circumvents traditional industry hype to ascertain how service providers are really responding to important industry happenings. What makes this initiative so unique is that participants discuss issues in a completely anonymous forum, enabling them to share insights and express business realities that otherwise could not be shared.

Following are examples of key TLC reports that address trends in automation:

This vendor-sponsored report indicates that service assurance is a key factor to CSP automation plans.

This TLC report indicates that CSPs already have started automating networks, despite that they don't have master plans in place to do so.
