With the Ethernet services market burgeoning as the familiar LAN technology moves into the WAN, a growing number of businesses from MNCs to SMEs are looking to link their sites to reduce costs and complexity, and to get the maximum bandwidth for their spend.
Report author Rob Pritchard observes: “A growing range of Ethernet services has become available. They first were used to link sites within a geographic area, but increasingly they are being used to build virtual networks across multiple sites, often across multiple countries.”
The report also finds that the future of corporate networking is likely to be a hybrid of Ethernet services and IP VPN services as enterprises look to exploit the benefits of the individual solutions.
“However,” cautioned Pritchard, “with so many service providers jumping on the Ethernet bandwagon, we are already seeing early signs of pricing pressures as providers look to win market share. The first movers have already made the most of their advantage over the latecomers – some of them unexpected – and the market is likely quickly to commoditise in its most competitive segments.”
The 173 page report profiles and compares 27 providers of Ethernet services with a focus on the Global market and covering a number of European national service providers, including products, positioning and target customers.
