Carrier Ethernet Solutions, a JV between Nokia Siemens and Juniper Networks, is dangling the cost cherry at operators seeking to offer combined domestic and business services.

Advanced Nokia management software deployed in an updated Carrier Ethernet Transport will cut operator’s costs by simplifying operational management, the firm claims.

The product features two NSN Ethernet access switches and will be demonstrated at the CTIA event in April.

Demand for Ethernet exchange services, which are similar to bandwidth exchanges, grew steadily during 2010. Vertical Systems Group predicts the market will be worth $674 million by 2014.

The growth comes as Ethernet services become a hot potato for carriers, with the technology bested only by IP-VPN in corporate WAN access.

Ovum predicts the broader market value will grow at a CAGR of 14% to $40 billion by 2015.
