With Unified Communication, VoIP and a general increase in data transfer putting increased bandwidth and performance pressure on wide area networks (WAN), legacy technologies like frame relay are being put out to pasture. As IT decision makers have looked for cost effective alternatives to these outdated services, Carrier Ethernet has emerged as a viable option for businesses upgrading communications, data storage or other critical aspects of business. Here are three top reasons for this development:

Lower cost

Carrier Ethernet offers a lower price point per Mbps, increasing its value for high bandwidth connectivity for major enterprises, data centers or wholesale services. Furthermore, with fixed data traffic worldwide projected to more than triple between 2014 and 2019, Carrier Ethernet will become even more attractive and readily available, especially as technology continues to advance.

Easy implementation and management

Many IT departments are already familiar with Carrier Ethernet service as a fast and convenient alternative to more archaic solutions, but as a refresher, Carrier Ethernet comes complete with tools that provide IT managers with visibility and control of services performance and availability of large-scale networks from a single platform, making monitoring and troubleshooting far simpler.    

Flexible bandwidth

Carrier Ethernet also offers unmatched bandwidth scalability for enterprises making the jump to 10, 100 or 1000 Mbps for their networks. Bandwidth can be scaled without the service provider needing to make a site visit. Adjustments to the user’s bandwidth needs can be made using software-based control at the Network Operations Center (NOC).

In short, Carrier Ethernet is a solution for both present and future business needs, especially with regard to enterprise communications applications and big data management.  Take  one click and 60 seconds  and find out the price to connect to your location with Carrier Ethernet.
