The market opportunity for Ethernet exchange services is sized at $674 million worldwide in 2014, according to Vertical Systems Group's latest research.
 
Driving this emerging market is rising demand throughout the world for Ethernet services and the consequent need for service providers to fill selected gaps in their existing network footprints.
 
Erin Dunne, director of research services, said that at this early market stage, Ethernet exchanges have more Ethernet providers committed to selling than buying services.
