Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Carrier Ethernet Equipment market size and forecast report, which tracks investment, penetration, and use of carrier Ethernet products in service provider networks.
“Carrier Ethernet is one of the key technologies that’s globally integral to IP transformation projects as operators are finalizing the move from TDM to packet-based networks. In 2013, these investments amounted to over $27 billion, and we forecast them to total $147 billion in the five-year period between 2014 and 2018,” reports Michael Howard, principal analyst for carrier networks and co-founder of Infonetics Research.
CARRIER ETHERNET MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Mobile backhaul continues to be a carrier Ethernet growth area: Ethernet equipment spending for mobile backhaul was $8.4 billion in 2013 and is expected to increase to over $9.2 billion in 2018
- On the other hand, pricing and technology changes are causing SONET/SDH to decline and microwave growth to slow
- Infonetics expects the global carrier Ethernet equipment market to top $30 billion in 2018
- The chief drivers of the carrier Ethernet equipment market are the move to IP packet networks and the growing traffic from consumer, business, and mobile backhaul networks, particularly video traffic

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
