Global carriers have been steadily announcing the launch of their global IPX networks. Many have also been declaring the introduction of new services to go over those networks, and initial customer contracts too. However, the market is confused, with service providers attributing the IPX brand to a wide range of different services, network types, and customer contracts. Wholesale service buyers are currently investigating IPX-based services and assessing whether they make a good strategic fit, but remain cautious.
