Data from a new TeleGeography research show that companies seeking wide area network services in Latin America, Asia, and Africa will find a more limited range of IP VPN providers and fewer Ethernet-based options.
 
The latest Global Enterprise Networks study identified 30 IP VPN providers in Frankfurt and 27 in Los Angeles, compared to 17 providers in Bangalore (India), and only 10 in Cape Town (South Africa).
 
Analyst Rob Schult said companies seeking IP VPN services in emerging markets need to evaluate the more limited number of service providers that can meet their network needs and adjust their expectations with respect to price.
