"Good article, thanks for posting. We also have an article on CLEC: http://blog.bicomsystems.com/clec"
"I also had the honor to participate in the Conference. I spoke on the topic of "Carrier Ethernet Transport Options -- PTCL Case Study". In addition, I participated in a panel discussion on "Carrier Ethernet: Business Aspects and Revenue Streams".
It was a great event with so many learning and networking opportunities. Operators from most of the APAC region contributed, and major Vendors related with CE were also present. Analysts like Ovum, Insight and Infonetics also played their role.
Asad Naveed, PMP, MEF-CECP"
"Great interview, thanks for sharing. Bicom Systems offers a CLEC solution - feel free to see our blog post about it: http://blog.bicomsystems.com/clec"
"400GE may probably happen sooner than TGE, but I think TGE would seem to be a natural fit for terabit wavelengths. "
I suppose it would depend upon what that financial institution is doing with the network connection. I know of many financial institutions that operate automatic teller machines, credit card terminals and point of sale devices. Many of these are upgrading from subrate (X.21) interfaces running at a fraction of 2Mbps. Some systems simply aren't ready for a gigabit worth of bandwidth.
"What use would a 2-Mbps Ethernet connection be to a financial firm? I would think they'd need a lot more bandwidth--but I could be wrong..."
""Service providers must sell Ethernet beyond mobile backhaul and datacenter interconnect." Good point. Would be great to see if there were a competitive market in special access and what ethernet pricing for tower backhaul and datacenter connectivity would do for the rest of the market. Bandwidth pricing broadly disconnected from Moore's and Metcalfe's laws about 10 years ago, so it is 20-150x more expensive than it should be."
"An eminently sensible idea--only surprised it took so long."
"Some captions/cutlines would have been nice..."
"Curious to know if there will be some erosion in the EoC market, particularly in the very low end of the market, as MSOs ramp up their Docsis networks."
"Hi Goinbananas....I'm also open to correction. You mention some of the specific elements that require synch to handle voice, the specific reasons that Ethernet backhaul needs to support. synchronization. I didn't give all the details, just said "voice".
Thanks for adding these.
"I am open to correction, but frequency and clock synchronization in Ethernet are crucial for mobile backhaul--to ensure smooth handoff between base stations, ensure there is no co-channel interference, clipped speech in voice calls, etc. "
"The iGR opinion on CE2.0 doesn't seem to be consistent with most analysts' perspective. Any other analysts want to comment?"
"I appreciate great concise content...thank you Jennifer."
"Great article topic. Yet, I wish the author would've gone a little deeper on applications / configurations and associated cost comparisons."
"Hayes' fiber/copper serving percentages match up very closely with recent studies and I agree with his statement, “We can get a lot of life out of copper for a while.”"
"Keith, good article. I'm a bit surprised at the "...customers will spend an average of 13% more for products when they believe a company provides excellent service." I thought it would be in the 20% range. Thank you for sharing!"
"Surprisingly, I am not finding very much opinionated literature as to the extent CPRI backhaul will cut into the market share of Carrier Ethernet, when the priority will shift from base station IP traffic backhaul to baseband backhaul as a result from the more cost effective approach to network design combining CPRI with wdm.
"Who is planning to attend this event? What should the TIA do to keep this event relevant to your business?"
"Hi Tony. Nice article. Glad to see a story about Carrier Ethernet in Asia-Pac."
"BT rocks and this although demonstraing a slower than expected sign-up is a wiiner."
"Thank you for the comment. I believe that link has been repaired.
your link in the article to http://www.carrierethernetnews.com/articles/185478/opposing-carrier-ethernet-camps-on-oam-for-mpls-tp/ doesn't work properly
Good info about G.8032 and it's benefits over MPLS. Thanks for the article"
