4G, Business Access Both Benefit From Growing 10-Mbps Ethernet Trend

By some reasonable accounts, carrier Ethernet has boosted HSPA+ performance enough that it can accurately be described as “4G,” at least in terms of potential bandwidth. That might qualify wireless backhaul using Ethernet as the most-important single carrier Ethernet application, in terms of customer impact.

But a change in business customer bandwidth buying would run a close second. Many would argue that 10 Mb/s Ethernet is the new T-1.

According to Vertical Systems Group, most business buyers choose access speeds someplace between T-1 at 1.5 Mbps, to T-3, at 45 Mbps.

Carrier Ethernet is the most popular technology choice within the intermediate-speed category, Vertical Systems estimates. By 2014, Ethernet connections will exceed all other intermediate-speed options by a factor of about 2.5, Vertical Systems Group also predicts. Carrier Ethernet enables 4G
