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.
