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.”

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.
