      Stepping to the EoC plate: Incumbent telcos take a swing

      Fiber is and will remain the ultimate medium for Carrier Ethernet, but in places where a service provider can't immediately prove a business case to lay fiber, many incumbent carriers are either considering or are expanding their Ethernet footprint over their existing copper network via Ethernet over Copper (EoC). As a follow up to our previous report on competitive providers pursuing Ethernet over Copper, we're taking a look at how incumbent carriers are taking on EoC and their respective strategies for delivery. "Longer-term, end-to-end Ethernet service delivered over fiber is clearly the end-game, as scalability demands and required ...
