Abstract

“We can’t be certain what technologies will shape our future, but Ethernet is certain to be a part of it” –Chad Lamb, Director of Engineering, XKL

The migration from legacy private-line services to Ethernet transport will accelerate. ATLANTIC-ACM estimates that revenues from legacy private-line services bought by businesses was down 8% from 2013 to 2014, while Ethernet transport (switched and dedicated Layer 2 Ethernet services) revenue reached $4B in 2014, up 16% from 2013. Ethernet’s share will grow from 38% of private transport in 2013 to 66% in 2019 as every sales conversation now starts with Ethernet. Both customers and carriers are inclined to go that direction as customers appreciate the scalability and protocol consistency and carriers seek to eventually decommission legacy networks. DIA and IP VPN also will make huge shifts from TDM access to Ethernet access technologies in 2015.

Looking forward, issues for IoT network infrastructure will include security, scalability as well as reliability. In addition to these challenges, many technical barriers will need to be overcome as IoT pushes the boundaries of what we know is possible today with regard to network protocols, storage and analytics. This session will examine the implications for addressing these issues with modern architecture that includes Ethernet.
