Lumen has approximately 450,000 route miles of fiber optic cable globally. Its terrestrial and subsea fiber optic long-haul network throughout North America, Europe, Latin America , and Asia Pacific connects to metropolitan fiber networks that they operate. Lumen provides services in over 60 countries, with most of its revenue being derived in the United States.

Lumen Technologies Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

In July 2021, Lumen Technologies expanded its fiber network infrastructure in Europe, strengthening its service capabilities in France, Switzerland, and Spain. These strategic network expansions put high-performance fiber closer to end-users to deliver faster connections, lower latency, and enhanced security, for an exceptional customer experience. The infrastructure extends fiber reach in and between major hubs of business and finance, bringing connectivity to new cities and providing dense coverage in key areas to connect multiple enterprise buildings and third-party data centers to the robust Lumen network. In June 2021, Lumen Technologies launched Lumen Solutions for Microsoft Teams – a managed, unified communications solution that leverages the Lumen platform to improve worker productivity, business agility, and customer support. With Lumen Solutions for Microsoft Teams, businesses can easily adopt "work from anywhere" policies because Lumen takes on the burden of managing the complex calling and collaboration tools that make remote work possible.

Lumen Technologies Risks and Challenges

Digital transformation is a complex, dynamic process requiring efficient allocation and prioritization of resources, simplification of Lumen's product portfolio, faster product deployments, the retirement of obsolete systems, migration of data and corresponding workforce and system development effectively could be a challenge.

Lumen Technologies Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI

In October 2021, Lumen Technologies expanded its partnership with Cisco to include a new offering: Lumen Solutions for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Cloud. This new product pairs Cisco's most advanced, cloud-based collaboration services with the reliability and speed of Lumen's global fiber network, which makes it an ideal solution for businesses that have already invested in Cisco Webex, or those that are considering it. Lumen sells its products and services primarily through direct sales representatives, inbound call centers, telemarketing and third parties, including telecommunications agents, system integrators, value-added resellers and other telecommunications firms. Lumen also has partnership agreements with different technology partners.
