      Data Centers Move To Metro

      Because Ethernet is fast becoming the dominant technology both inside data centers and in the metro networks that interconnect them, it makes sense to deploy networks that are raw and powerful, able to switch and aggregate Ethernet, and reduce the cost and complexity of deploying high-touch functions that are not needed in many parts of the metro network.

      Are all carrier Ethernet connections created equal?

      We continue debating shared/switched Ethernet as a WAN solution with peers in the industry, vendors and customers. The argument from our perspective is not all ethernet connections are created equal. The opinions are varied, some are based on fact, some are based on being in the industry too long and cynicism has set in and others just are looking to sell cheaper broadband whatever the situation (aka..they don’t care).
