Combined Cloud as a Service revenue for telecom operators in Technology Business Research Inc.’s (TBR) Carrier Cloud Benchmark rose 12.6% year-to-year in 2Q17 due to strategic acquisitions and alliances, investments in new data centers, and portfolio expansion in growth segments such as SaaS and hybrid cloud.
