      CE in CE: GTS Evangelizes Carrier Ethernet Across Central Europe

      The CE after GTS’s name stands for Central Europe, but it might as well mean Carrier Ethernet. In December 2009, GTS launched Carrier Ethernet services in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and its home country of Poland. The rollout is noteworthy for a few reasons, including the scale and being the first of its kind in the region.

      Can the Metro Ethernet Forum Supply the 'Third Network?'

      What if you could combine the reliability of the PSTN and the speed of the Internet? What if you did not have to compromise the quality of a connection over the PSTN with the ability to be mobile? In his opening keynote speech for the NetEvents Americas in Miami this week, Nan Chen addressed this seemingly far-fetched notion. Chen is the President of the , a group that works toward the global adoption of Carrier Ethernet services. He asked the audience, “Where do we see where we are going in ter

      The Difference between Metro Ethernet and Stretched Data Center Subnets « ipSpace.net by @ioshints

      Every time I rant about large-scale bridging and stretched L2 subnets, someone inevitably points out that Carrier (or Metro) Ethernet works perfectly fine using the same technologies and principles. I won’t spend any time on the “perfectly fine” part (Greg Ferro had a lot to say about that in the early Packet Pushers podcasts), but focus on the fundamental difference between the two: the use case. Engineers who know what they’re doing connect individual sites to Metro Ethernet services with laye
