ABSTRACT
The article focuses on virtual network operators (VNOs). Corporate data network planners break with tradition in the past, deploying their own data networks in the 1980s, and substituting SSL-VPNs for dial-up remote access in the 1990s. In today's market, a variety of different service providers are offering corporate site-to-site data links and remote data access. Vanco and Virtela Communications Inc. have been particularly vocal in proclaiming the superiority of their VNO business model. They maintain that, by not owning network assets, they can devote themselves more fully to customer requirements. The pitch seems to work better in Europe--where there are many small countries with their own Riles and a lack of viable choices-- than in the U.S., where there are fewer jurisdictional borders and enterprise customers have more options. While Virtela is still venture-funded, Vanco has been public and profitable for roughly the same time period. Cross-border networks are among the best opportunities for these virtual network providers.
