      London getting more competitive for leased-line fibre

      BT is likely to enjoy lighter controls on the amount it can charge for its leased lines in London, under Ofcom proposals. The regulator has also proposed deregulating the market for "longer distance legacy leased lines", and forcing BT to offer its regulated Ethernet services "on the same basis to all retail providers".

      Virtualized Access Could Benefit Wholesale Carrier Ethernet Access Market

      Virtualization has been a telecom industry buzzword for some time – but it’s gotten a lot more attention recently as a result of trends in cloud computing and software-defined networks. It’s also beginning to find its way into the access network, where it could help simplify the process of turning up Carrier Ethernet service when more than one service provider is involved in providing the underlying end-to-end link.

    8. Getting Carrier Ethernet Synced for Mobile Backhaul

      Getting Carrier Ethernet Synced for Mobile Backhaul

      The term "synchronous" is now popping up whenever people talk of mobile backhaul (though that's not the only application), because without synchronization, Carrier Ethernet, which is inherently asynchronous, would have no role in the red-hot mobile backhaul market. Moreover, proper synchronization is essential for mobile networks. Without it, you'd have dropped calls, slow handover between base stations, clipped speech, inter-node interference, and lack of interoperability between different mobile networks (e.g. 2G, 3G, 4G).

      Ofcom announces leased line consultation - includes Carrier Ethernet

      Telecoms regulator Ofcom proposes regulation for 1Gbps connections but takes lighter approach to BT wholesale broadband pricing in London. Ofcom claimed the higher level of competition from other providers in London meant BT didn’t have to face such strong regulations about pricing its leased lines. Ofcom said this meant rules would be softer for its Ethernet services up to 1Gbps across London.
