Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Adoption Trends and the Impact of Lifecycle Service Orchestration
In July 2015, the MEF Forum2 announced at its annual meeting that more than 50 service providers worldwide have received Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) services certification. This is an important milestone for what represents the “gold standard” for Ethernet connectivity and access services. Several trends are driving the need for rapid adoption of CE 2.0 certified services.
Key among them being:
Market migration from traditional Time Division Multiplexed (TDM) networks to Ethernet
Exponential growth in traffic on corporate wide area networks (WAN)
Growing demand for high performance Ethernet services with endtoend service level agreements (SLA)
Growing adoption of private, dynamic bandwidth services for cloud networking
Interest in CE 2.0 also is increasing because CE 2.0 specifications provide a standardsbased way for network operators to seamlessly interconnect with each other, and deliver assured performance across local, regional, national and international Ethernet networks.
Broader adoption of—and tighter compliance with—MEF 26.1 (External NetworktoNetwork Interface, ENNI) and MEF 33 (Ethernet Access Services) specifications is especially important to scale the reach of Ethernet services to more offnet locations, and thus make Ethernet as widely available as the TDM based T1 and T3 services.
Expanding standardsbased ENNI partnerships will speed the shift from TDM to CE 2.0, and help create the strong connectivity fabric among operators that will be needed to underpin tomorrow’s dynamic services environment.
