MEF: Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Pioniere ebnen Weg für weiteren Anstieg der Ethernet-Zugangszahlen

Die steigende Anzahl von Zugangsprovidern der Ethernet-Gemeinde, neue Märkte für regionale Anbieter, anwendungsorientierte Dienstleistungsvereinbarungen, optimiertes Mobile Backhaul und Cloud Service Angebote … so beschreibt Ihab Tarazi, Chairman of the Board des MEF (MetroEthernet Forum) die Vorteile des aktuellen Angebots anlässlich der heutigen feierlichen Bekanntgabe der ersten zwanzig Anbieter des Carrier Ethernet 2.0 zertifizierten Produkts. Zu den Rednern gehörten auch der Ethernet Erfinder Bob Metcalfe und Nan Chen, President bei MEF.

„Die Erfolge der Unternehmen belegen ihr Streben nach herausragenden Angeboten auf dem Carrier Markt”, so Ihab Tarazi. „Die Zertifizierung wird die Serviceprovider in die Lage versetzen, die Ausrüstungsanbieter schneller und mit größerer Sicherheit auswählen zu können. Die CE 2.0 Zertifizierung markiert einen Meilenstein in der Geschichte des MEF und der Entwicklung des Carrier Ethernet.”

Die ersten 20 zertifizierten Anbieter: Accedian, Altera, BTI Systems, Ciena, Cisco, Cyan, FibroLAN, Huawei, Infinera, Juniper Networks, MRV, Omnitron, Overture, PT Inovacao, Pulsecom, RAD Data Communications, Telco Systems, Tellabs, Transition Networks und Transmode.

CE 2.0 der nächsten Generation erweitert das ursprüngliche Aufgabenpofil von Carrier Ethernet um wichtige neue Funktionen. Hierzu gehören unterschiedliche Service-Klassen, bessere Handhabung und leichtere Vernetzbarkeit für 8 Standard-Servicetypen, um höhere Effizienzniveaus für Mobile Backhaul zu ermöglichen. Eine große Zahl von Zugangsanbietern kann somit der Carrier Ethernet Gemeinde problemlos beitreten und als professioneller Cloud Service Carrier dazu beitragen, das Carrier Ethernet zu integrieren und zu etablieren. Nan Chen, President bei MEF, erläuterte: „Die Hauptmarkttreiber dominieren weiterhin die Branche: Bandbreitenvergrößerung, mobile Daten und LTE-Migration sowie das Wachstum des privaten und öffentlichen Cloud Computing.”

Bob Mandeville, President und Gründer des Testlabors Iometrix und Leiter der Testverfahren bei MEF, erläuterte die Herausforderungen bei der Einhaltung der neuen strengen Standards: „Die Hürden bei CE 2.0 Zulassungen sind hoch gesteckt. Um die CE 2.0 Zertifizierung zu erhalten, muss jedes Unternehmen eine Testreihe, bestehend aus insgesamt 634 strengen Prüfungen, bestehen. Mehr als 155 Unternehmen erhielten bereits eine CE 1.0 Zertifizierung und die Prognosen für 2.0 sind viel versprechend. Die Nachfrage nach zertifizierten Produkten und Serviceleistungen beschleunigt das Wachstum und wir erwarten im Jahr 2013 eine signifikante Zunahme im Hinblick auf die Anzahl der Serviceprovider sowohl in den etablierten Märkten als auch in den Schwellenmärkten.”

Das Carrier Ethernet hat sich zur größten Erfolgsgeschichte der Branche im letzten Jahrzehnt entwickelt. Erstmals in diesem Jahr übertrafen CE Bandbreiten-Dienstleistungsanteile die Gesamtzahl der traditionellen Telekommunikationsdienstleistungen weltweit. Laut Vertical Systems Group ist CE inzwischen als vorherrschende Technologie im Carrier-Sektor anzusehen. Im vergangenen Jahr wurden laut IDC mehr als 1,2 Mrd. neue Ethernet-Ports ausgeliefert (400 Millionen drahtgebunden und 800 Millionen drahtlos). Frost & Sullivan, Vertical Systems und Infonetics prognostizieren bis zum Jahr 2015 einen 48-Milliarden-Dollar Servicemarkt.

Bob Metcalfe, der Erfinder des Ethernet, fasste die Preisverleihungsgala mit folgenden Worten zusammen: „Auch 40 Jahre nach seiner Einführung ist das Ethernet durch eine Reihe von Innovationen gekennzeichnet. CE 2.0 versetzt Serviceprovider und Anbieter in die Lage, die weltweite Vernetzung voranzutreiben und den Unternehmen ein Gesamtpaket an Diensten im Hinblick auf unterschiedliche Service-Klassen und solide Leistungsvereinbarungen anzubieten. Diese zwanzig Unternehmen sind die ersten, die dieses enorme Potenzial frühzeitig erkannt haben. Es verspricht einen deutlichen Wettbewerbsvorteil, da das Carrier Ethernet weiterhin eine dominante Rolle einnehmen und alle anderen Technologien und Serviceleistungen auf dem Markt überholen wird.”

Why do your mobile transformations need to happen today? Mobile is the strategy that enterprise transformation centers on to drive customer engagement. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Roger Woods, Director, Mobile Product & Strategy – Adobe Marketing Cloud, covered key IoT and mobile trends that are forcing mobile transformation, key components of a solid mobile strategy and explored how brands are effectively driving mobile change throughout the enterprise.
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.
