How Ethernet Enables Cloud Connectivity
Great article written by Rosemary Cochran, principal at Vertical Systems Group.
Standards for Ethernet-based cloud connectivity continue to advance. The MEF's Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) initiative provides guidelines for cloud-ready Ethernet services and equipment. Developments are focused on multi-network Interconnectivity, end-to-end SLAs (Service Level Agreements), application-aware QoS (Quality of Service) and dynamic bandwidth provisioning. A new CE 2.0 certification process aims to ensure standards adherence.
