Carrier Ethernet Insights

Sponsored by Ciena

There’s no longer any argument that Carrier Ethernet is the de facto option for mobile backhaul links. But where Carrier Ethernet was once ahead of the curve for mobile operators who needed a simple and cost-efficient way to beef up their backhaul pipes, the evolution of mobile broadband networks to 4G requires co evolve with it.
 
This Telecom Insights e-guide focuses on the new challenges that LTE brings to mobile backhaul — from all-IP topologies that still must support legacy 2G/3G to the growing importance of traffic prioritization and classes of service — and how Carrier Ethernet is evolving to meet those challenges.
 
Also: Ciena Asia-Pacific VP and GM Anthony McLachlan provides insight on how virtualization and Carrier Ethernet can resolve the access connectivity issues arising from demand for cloud services.  And we take an in-depth look at Ethernet services, and how their ongoing expansion introduces new challenges – particularly in terms of differentiation – that must be addressed by enhancing overall service experience.
