Infonetics: Telecom Operators Spending $150 Billion Over 5 Years on Carrier Ethernet Equipment, Driven by IP

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.

ANALYST NOTE

“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 under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
