This study presents an in-depth analysis of the key trends impacting the wholesale carrier Ethernet services market. The study includes market revenue forecasts, competitive analysis and market share analysis. The revenue analysis is segmented by transport length (metro versus long haul), service type (Ethernet Access, E-Line and E-LAN) and port speeds (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 GigE and 10 Gbps). Revenues considered for analysis in this research are revenues recognized by service providers from all types of wholesale Ethernet services.

Executive Summary

The wholesale Carrier Ethernet market surpassed Frost & Sullivan's predicted growth rates, with 2011 market revenues exceeding $ x x Billion. Wholesale carriers saw great demand for Ethernet for mobile backhaul (tower/cell site access) and aggregation; and this trend will continue throughout the forecast period. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) continue to buy high speed Ethernet ports for IP transit applications, and represent a significant revenue share of the market. Service providers report that in 2011, the wireline market started to take off, with a significant increase in demand from the traditional inter-exchange carriers (IXCs) and competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) for Ethernet. Cloud networking is beginning to drive demand for wholesale Ethernet services, as cloud companies look to Ethernet instead of public IP networks to build their cloud networks. Ethernet is attractive for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) because it can be offered economically, with a lower price per megabit than any other service. Furthermore, it can be offered in a range of bandwidths and for a variety of private line and Local Area Network (LAN) extension services. Wholesale metro access and E-Line (point-to-point) services continue to dominate the revenue share. There is a noticeable uptick in market adoption of high capacity port speeds, particularly x x GigE. In addition, x x/ x x Mbps ports continue to see growth.
