As computer networking technologies go, the Ethernet is one clutch of standards that has seen huge application all over the world when it comes to local area networks. Introduced in 1980, Ethernet was standardized by the work done by IEEE or Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Specifically, the IEEE 802.3 governs the standards pertaining to the Ethernet. There are many aspects to the Ethernet such as:
• Evolution which encompassed better bandwidth
• Variants which encompass forms such as 1000BASE-T and
• Ethernet physical layer which also includes fiber Ethernet.
What does fiber Ethernet deliver?
All organizations that use Ethernet over fiber choose this technology primarily because it is robust. Depending on the service provider that you choose, you can get to enjoy aspects such as:
• Better visibility into and better management of traffic
• Robust service level agreements
• More resilience
• Higher availability of network services
• Better speed of data transmission
Support devices and services
Fiber Ethernet also needs aggregation and demarcation devices and it is a good idea to check whether the service provider adheres to guideline set by organizations such as MEF and other certifying bodies for these devices too.
You may also be considering migration to fiber Ethernet from an existing ecosystem. In which case, it does stand to logic that you look for a service provider who has specific capabilities in this area as well. Ideally, there should be minimal operational impact during such a migration.
In some parts of the world, availability of fiber is a big concern to deploy fiber Ethernet. Quite a few business organizations and service providers are thinking of Ethernet service ubiquity and fiber Ethernet is certainly one technology that is contributing massively to global Ethernet services growth.
When looking for the right kind of connectivity solution, a business organization must address aspects such as:
• Availability of bandwidth,
• The type of fiber Ethernet and
• The price at which the services will be provided.
While looking at service level agreements, it is also important to ensure that verification of services are conducted. Such verification will entail the time that it will take for the service provider to enable fiber Ethernet service and the modalities of detecting and “repairing” faults and being able to measure performance with insightful and relevant metrics.
Thus, deploying fiber Ethernet services can definitely go a long way in helping a business organization connects to the world at large in a robust, available and effective manner.
With technology continuously evolving, and the recent move to cloud-based applications, there is an ever-increasing demand for bigger, more reliable connectivity. It is important to keep up with new innovations; here are the ones you should keep on your radar.
SD-WAN (or ‘software defined area networking’) is a changing the way multi-site businesses (or those with homeworkers) connect and build their networks. This post will discuss the importance of a good connection for SD-WAN and the benefits of the technology.
