One of the technologies that is based on Ethernet standards is Metro Ethernet. Also known as Metropolitan area Ethernet, it is characterized by:
Among the many advantages offered by Metro Ethernet connectivity, there’s also the fact that it is extremely easy to use. Considering that it is governed by the Metro Ethernet Forum or MEF, there are some pretty technical and standardized services that come under the banner of Metro Ethernet. It can also go a long way in proving to be a very cost-effective solution for business organizations.
According to the MEF, Metro Ethernet networks can differ according to CoS or classes of service. The identification for such CoS are aspects such as physical ports, IP TOS and CE-VLAN. There are some well established names in this space and that is one reason why Metro Ethernet connectivity has become rather common today.
Some of the business benefits offered by Metro Ethernet connectivity are:
Depending on the service provider that you choose, you can enjoy a vast range of service features that can encompass:
Typically, a Metro Ethernet landscape gets deployed when a business organization wants to support work groups that are spread across some specific metropolitan area. Of course, with increasing technological sophistication, Metro Ethernet is also getting deployed in larger areas. But conventionally, a business organization or owner can use this solution to support a business ecosystem within a Metro. The fact that it can be easily scaled up, when required, also makes it a viable solution to work in support of virtual work groups of any business organization.
One of the Sterling features of a Metro Ethernet solution is the fact that it is not a router-based technology. The above mentioned feature of point-to-point service configuration is possible because the Ethernet creates these multipoint paths by using switches rather than conventional Routers. And when such switch-based architecture is deployed, Metro Ethernet networks prove to be useful where business organizations seek really low latency.
Thus, with Metro Ethernet services, a business organization can indeed enjoy plenty of benefits that will go a long way in helping it meet all its requirements of support for business critical operations. Whether it is the underlying architecture or cost effectiveness, Metro Ethernet indeed seems to have plenty of solutions for today’s business requirements.
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.
