      Carriers move to virtual routers; AT&T's business mobility push

      In terms of Ethernet, Infonetics' survey of 32 carriers from around the globe shows that only 4% of the router and Carrier Ethernet switch ports bought this year are 100 Gigabit Ethernet, but that percentage will grow to 19% by 2016. Carrier respondents also said they expect to pay "10 GbE parity" for 100 GbE ports by 2016, which means that a 100 GbE port will be priced at 10 times the cost of a 10 GbE port.
