Carrier Ethernet Approaches Key Milestone

Ethernet bandwidth is projected to exceed 75 percent of total global business bandwidth by 2017.

That’s according to the networking specialists at Vertical Systems Group, who call this an important milestone.

“Market demand is heightening this year for higher capacity Ethernet connectivity,” said Rosemary Cochran, principal at Vertical Systems Group. “Propelled by purchases of 1 Gbps and 10+ Gbps services, Carrier Ethernet will contribute to more than 75 percent of total global business bandwidth by 2017. Given that legacy services accounted for the majority of business data bandwidth utilized worldwide during the past decade, this upcoming milestone underscores how substantially Ethernet is transforming the wide area networking landscape.”

Global bandwidth purchased for business Ethernet surpassed installed legacy bandwidth for the first time in 2012.
