IDC's Worldwide Telecom Services Taxonomy, 2019
This IDC Taxonomy provides a comprehensive overview of the definitions used for measuring telecom services markets across the globe. The top-level methodology used to research these markets is also outlined in the study. The taxonomy outlines the segmentation used throughout the Worldwide Telecom Services Database, which includes service access type and type of end user. The study also outlines the metrics used in the database: service connections, traffic generated on those service connections, and associated spending by users. Other key indicators published include service penetration levels and ARPU calculations.
"IDC's Worldwide Telecom Services taxonomy provides a standard and consistent guide to our analysts located across the globe who research telecom services markets at a country level," said Eric Owen, group vice president, EMEA Telecommunications and Networking. "These markets have to be assessed bottom up as they are all different, so it's essential to have a foundation taxonomy study that will evolve with the markets over time."
