Ethernet and the Heart of the Internet

Moderator: Brad Smith, Light Counting


Ethernet permeates throughout the entire networked world, and each part of the network brings forward its own challenges for Ethernet that must be addressed.  Carriers and Multi System Operators (MSO) must deal with large geographically diverse networks where Ethernet is everywhere: from their access networks to their aggregation networks.  Internet exchanges are at the heart of networks, and must also deal with the bandwidth issues that occur there. Come hear the panelists share their perspectives on the problems they face, and engage in the discussion to understand what these parts of the Ethernet Eco-System need from Ethernet in the future.
