NEW YORK, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
This study presents an in-depth analysis of the key trends impacting the Business carrier Ethernet services market, and includes market revenue forecasts, ports forecasts and market share analysis. The analysis is segmented by:
• Transport length (metro versus long haul)
• Service type (dedicated versus switched)
• Service configuration (point-to-point and multipoint-to-multipoint)
• Port speeds (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 GigE and 10 Gbps)
Carrier Ethernet continues to gain acceptance among enterprises, due to the benefits it offers: scalability, reliability, and cost efficient bandwidth. U.S. market revenues crossed $ billion in 2013, and are expected to reach $ Billion in 2018.
Demand for point-to-point or E-Line Ethernet services continues to grow as businesses migrate from traditional private lines (T1/T3/SONET) to Ethernet. While both dedicated and switched Ethernet services are seeing growth, the latter is witnessing much higher year-over-year (YoY) growth rates (- percent) as compared to dedicated Ethernet (- percent). The growth in dedicated Ethernet is due to a huge installed base of SONET-based Ethernet Private Line (EPL) circuits in the metro market and DWDM-based EPL in the long haul market. As communication service providers (CSPs) expand their switched Ethernet footprint by utilizing their multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks and Layer 2 Ethernet switches, Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) is expected to gain traction in the market.
Similarly, E-LAN services continue to see growth in key verticals, such as healthcare, government and education, which often need multipoint-to-multipoint connectivity. Switched Ethernet, with its ability to support multiple Ethernet Virtual Circuits (EVCs) that enable service multiplexing onto a single port, has seen significant adoption in the metro markets. E-LAN services are a cost-effective and reliable alternative for customers migrating from expensive ATM and Frame Relay networks. However, demand for Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) continues to be modest, as most enterprises continue to prefer Layer 3 MPLS VPNs as opposed to VPLS for multi-site connectivity.
CSPs continue to focus on network expansion, service level agreements (SLAs) and classes of service (CoS) on their Ethernet networks. As part of their network expansion strategies, CSPs are bringing more customer locations on to their Ethernet networks in the metro space, and enabling intercity connectivity in the long haul space, either through partnerships or through capital investments.
As enterprises increase their adoption of Ethernet for mission critical applications, they are driving CSPs' efforts on stringent monitoring of SLAs for switched Ethernet services. CSPs are beginning to offer standardized SLAs for switched Ethernet services; however, most SLAs are focused around availability and mean time to repair (MTTR). SLAs for latency and packet loss are offered based on customer needs. Frost & Sullivan expects this to change as a result of the Metro Ethernet Forum's (MEF) introduction of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) specifications in February 2012. CE 2.0 establishes standards around Multi CoS (along with increasing manageability and interconnection of global Ethernet networks). The MEF standards for Multi- CoS are expected to enable CSPs to meet stringent performance objectives on Ethernet networks supporting critical applications such as voice, video, and connectivity to cloud applications.
As enterprise customers seek cost-effective solutions to converge their voice, data and video applications, Ethernet—with its large number of benefits, and cost effective, flexible, and reliable bandwidth—continues to be a winner in the transport services arena.

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between confe...

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
