Panel II: Keeping the Ethernet Edge
Wednesday, Dec. 1, 10:45-11:145am 

Now that Ethernet services have become table stakes in commercial services circles — due to their low cost, flexible, packet-based nature and relatively easy integration into the existing telecom infrastructure — such major North American MSOs as Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Rogers Communications, Cablevision Systems, Charter Communications and Bright House Networks have all become major players in the lucrative Ethernet market.

Cable operators have carved out their market-share gains by rolling out both fiber-driven Metro Ethernet and Ethernet over DOCSIS (EoD) solutions for data, voice, video and mobile backhaul services. But, as the market keeps evolving and several large providers consolidate, they face new challenges in maintaining their progress. In this session, cable operators, vendors and other industry experts will look at the evolving Ethernet market and assess where the new opportunities lie.
