Wholesale Carrier Ethernet Services Market Update, 2014

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Wholesale Carrier Ethernet Services Market Update, 2014" report to their offering.

This study presents an in-depth analysis of the key trends impacting the wholesale carrier Ethernet services market and includes market revenue forecasts and market share analysis.

The analysis is segmented by: - Transport length (metro versus long haul) - Service type (dedicated versus switched) - Service configuration (point-to-point and multipoint-to-multipoint) - Port speeds (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 GigE and 10 Gbps) MARKET DEFINITIONS & RESEARCH SCOPE Carrier Ethernet Definitions This study uses the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) definition for Carrier Ethernet service. MEF is a standards body governing the developments in Carrier Ethernet technology, and has documented numerous technical requirements for building and managing feature-rich, business-class Ethernet services over any infrastructure to drive widespread availability of Ethernet services.

The MEF Carrier Ethernet 1.0 specifications define Ethernet services in three broad types of configuration: - E-Line (point-to-point) - E-Tree (point-to-multipoint) - E-LAN (multipoint-to-multipoint).

In February 2012, the MEF announced Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 specifications that extend the certification from three services in CE 1.0 to eight services: two of each- port and VLAN-based, respectively- in E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree, and E-Access configurations. CE 2.0 also defines standards for supporting multiple classes of service (CoS), Ethernet service operations, administration and management (OAM), and its manageability across interconnected provider networks. CE 1.0 specifications enabled standardized services to be delivered over a single provider's network.

Executive Summary: Cloud networking is beginning to drive demand for wholesale Ethernet services, as cloud companies look to Ethernet instead of public IP networks to build their cloud networks.

Ethernet is attractive for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) because it can be offered economicallywith a lower price per megabit than any other service. Furthermore, it can be offered in a range ofbandwidths and for a variety of private line and Local Area Network (LAN) extension services.

While both dedicated and switched Ethernet services are seeing growth, the latter is witnessing much higheryear-over-year (YoY) growth rates. The supremacy of dedicated services, fueled by widespread availabilityof SONET infrastructure, is coming to an end. The shift to switched services has started. CSPs report thatmost of the new demand is for switched Ethernet servicesa trend that is expected to tilt the scale largelytoward switched by 2018.
