Cavell’s main research focus is new market opportunities presented by the adoption of next generation network technologies, namely SD WAN and Future Voice services such as Hosted UC, SIPT and IPX. Previous bespoke research has also covered Future Network and Future City technologies, including CDN, SDN and Mobile Data. Based on practical knowledge and strong supply side relationships, Cavell’s research combines comprehensive modelling and research techniques to provide a unique market picture.
