      Talking GigE IP Transit with TeleGeography

      The price of GigE IP transit inexplicably saw a particularly steep drop over the last year, according to new research from TeleGeography.  And although GigE IP transit is not strictly speaking a Carrier Ethernet service, its pricing is important to the Carrier Ethernet market because Carrier Ethernet often underlies the connections to the GigE port.

      Demystifying SDN for Carrier Ethernet Networks

      Software Defined Networking (SDN) is the hottest new technology in networking. Google is running its backbone network traffic on an SDN network built using OpenFlow. Nicira was acquired by VMware for $1.26 billion to accelerate the adoption of network virtualization in the data center. Yet with all the buzz about SDN, it is not clear how it will be deployed in service provider networks and what it means to the expansion of Carrier Ethernet.

      Business: The other 'underserved' broadband market

      Despite all of the movement by the major telcos and CLECs to deploy fiber or higher-speed Ethernet over Copper (EoC) connections to more business locations, the reality is the majority of businesses today still use low-speed, copper-based 1.5 Mbps T1 connections. Such connections are significantly slower than what Google or traditional ILEC Verizon (NYSE: VZ) promise with their 1 Gbps and 300 Mbps proposed speed tiers.
