Research and Markets: Analysis of the U.S. Retail Carrier Ethernet Services Market, 2012

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's (News - Alert) new report "Analysis of the U.S. Retail Carrier Ethernet Services Market, 2012" to their offering.

The retail Carrier Ethernet services market continued to keep up its 2010 momentum in 2011, growing at an impressive annual growth rate of percent; and the 2011 market revenues exceeded $ billion. Ethernet services continue to gain acceptance as the preferred choice for bandwidth needs of different types and sizes of enterprises, owing to the benefits they offer: scalability, reliability and cost efficient bandwidth.

Market demand for the overall service continues to grow, with Ethernet access being rapidly adopted by enterprises to connect to Layer 3 Multi-Protocol Label Switched (MPLS) virtual private networks (VPNs) and Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) services, and E-Line (EPL and EVPL), becoming the de facto choice of service for replacement of traditional private line circuits. Metro E-LAN continues to see growth in key vericals, such as healthcare, government and education, which often need multipoint-to-multipoint connectivity.

2011 also witnessed an increased market demand for long haul Ethernet circuits, particularly for point-topoint connectivity.

This is an indication of the gradual market migration from traditional private line circuits to Ethernet in the long haul segment. However, demand for Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) continues to be modest, as most enterprises continue to prefer Layer 3 MPLS VPNs as opposed to VPLS for multi-site connectivity.

Communication service providers (CSPs) continue to focus on network expansion, service level agreements (SLAs) and classes of service (CoS) on their Ethernet networks. As part of their network expansion strategies, CSPs are bringing more customer locations on to their Ethernet networks in the metro space, and enabling intercity connectivity in the long haul space, either through partnerships or through capital investment.

Revenue Growth Surges as Carrier Ethernet Crosses the Chasm:

This study presents an in-depth analysis of the key trends impacting the retail carrier Ethernet services market. The study includes market revenue forecasts, ports forecasts, and market share analysis. The analysis is segmented by transport length (metro versus long haul), service type (Ethernet Access, E-Line and E-LAN) and port speeds (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 GigE and 10 Gbps). Revenues considered for analysis in this research are revenues recognized by service providers from all types of retail Ethernet services.
