The MetroEthernet Forum (MEF) has announced the first 20 vendors to offer Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified products. They are Accedian, Altera, BTI Systems, Ciena, Cisco, Cyan, FibroLAN, Huawei, Infinera, Juniper Networks, MRV, Omnitron, Overture, PT Inovacao, Pulsecom, RAD Data Communications, Telco Systems, Tellabs, Transition Networks and Transmode. MEF board chairman Ihab Tarazi said the benefits include an increase in the number of access providers in the Ethernet community, new markets for regional providers, application-oriented SLAs, optimised mobile backhaul and cloud service delivery.
The new CE 2.0 extends the original purpose of Carrier Ethernet with added features including: multiple classes of service, greater manageability and easier interconnect for eight standard services types, enabling new levels of efficiency for mobile backhaul, making it easier for large numbers of access providers to join the Carrier Ethernet community and establish Carrier Ethernet as a business class cloud service carrier.
CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb 23, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its fourth quarter 2011 (4Q11) Service Provider Routers and Switches vendor market share report, which analyzes the IP edge router, IP core router, and carrier Ethernet switch (CES) market segments and the manufacturers within them.
"The carrier router and switch market hit a record-high $14.5 billion in 2011, up 8% over 2010, making it the second largest telecom market segment after mobile RAN infrastructure," notes Michael Howard, Infonetics Research's co-founder and principal analyst for carrier networks.
"Yet paradoxically, 2011 results show signs of a slowdown in the market's overall growth rate," Howard continues. "Why? Because despite continued double-digit percent annual growth in the largest market, Asia, and the smallest market, Latin America, the two mainstays of carrier routers and switches, North America and EMEA, are slowing. Still, the fundamental market drivers will pace the overall market forward, with growing fixed broadband traffic and exploding mobile broadband traffic on 3G and LTE networks pushing many service providers to upgrade their access, aggregation, and core networks, including mobile backhaul."
