“End-User Services at a disruptive Price Level: Use-Cases of deploying Metro Ethernet” is the subject of the presentation by Jan Hof, Director Field Marketing EMEA-SAM of Extreme Networks, who will be one of the presenters in the ANGA Cable Congress on Thursday, May 28.
Delivery of Triple-Play/Quad-Play services in a cost-effective way is key for Service Providers to be competitive and remain profitable. Especially with the delivery of TV, HDTV and additional video services over IP the need for bandwidth, and consequently the cost of the network, is increasing fast.
Due to the huge deployment of Ethernet in the Enterprise, cost of the technology already went -and is still- going down in a sharp way. With the recent developments in standardization, Ethernet has evolved from just an Etherprise technology to a proven Carrier Class technology.
In the Metro part of the network there is no need for expensive router technologies like MPLS and L3-VPN’s, as data only needs be transported from the end-user to service delivery platform and vice versa. Use of native Ethernet as transport protocol in the Metro, allows Service Provider to benefit from the economies of scale of Ethernet and reduce network-cost dramatically. In return Service Providers can offer (new) services at a break-through level to their customers.
In this panel session, Extreme Networks would like to share scenarios how Ethernet can be used as the transport protocol in the Metro as well as Operator use-cases of deploying native Ethernet in the Metro. Demonstrating how use of the right technology in the Metro can improve your profitability and/or allows you to take market share.
