Carrier Ethernet

Carrier Ethernet is high speed Ethernet for Metro Area Networks. It defines native Ethernet packet access to the Internet as well as increasing penetration of wireless networks, which present a direct challenge to the traditional SONET telephony infrastructure, and promises Wide Area networking scalable beyond 10Gbps using ubiquitous Ethernet technology. The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), a standards organization, has made a commitment to the new standard with their simultaneous launch of a Carrier Ethernet Certification Program to accelerate the delivery of industry standard products and services to the end user.
