There’s no denying the rapid growth of the Ethernet market. Consider the following findings from Infonetics Research as proof:
- The combined global Ethernet services and IP MPLS VPN services markets totaled $62.6 billion in 2013—an increase of 12 percent from 2012.
- Revenue from Ethernet services delivered on 10GE and 100GE is slated to grow 300 percent leading up to 2018.
- According to Michael Howard, principal analyst for carrier networks and Infonetics co-founder, Ethernet easily outpaced IP MPLS VPN services and will grow at a rate about twice as fast through 2017.
