Executive Summary

The growth of Carrier Ethernet services has led to the establishment of robust carrier interconnects standards by the MEF that enable many-to-many connections and a common, reliable framework for providing end-to-end CoS, OAM, and SLAs. With the ratification and adoption of the E-NNI specification in particular, interconnect providers now see a viable new market for extending Ethernet networks nationally and internationally. The resulting new interconnect business, the Ethernet Exchange, is an exciting opportunity for interconnect providers to grow their businesses, for service providers seeking to cost-effectively scale Ethernet deployments and expand services for customers, and for businesses that need to scale networks to keep up with application and bandwidth demands.
