Carrier Ethernet Services

The Boom of Carrier Ethernet Services

The wholesale carrier Ethernet market is exceeding industry analysts’ expectations as pundits contend that this market will grow steadily over the next five years, reaching about $39 billion in 2017. That is because carrier Ethernet services have become an intrinsic, permanent part of service provider networks—fueling the investment in switches, IP routers and Ethernet access devices.

Carrier Ethernet services—the use of high-bandwidth Ethernet technology for Internet access and communication among local area networks—afford countless benefits. Most notably, by using Layer 2 switching, the technology allows enterprises to get a handle on exorbitant bandwidth costs, enjoy availability and heightened performance and guaranteeing security and reliability. Moreover, carrier Ethernet has minimal configuration requirements allowing for immediate, seamless use.
