Carrier Ethernet

Service providers are migrating their existing networks to deliver Carrier Ethernet services to enterprise, business, and residential customers worldwide. Carrier Ethernet addresses limitations of legacy technology by providing flexible bandwidth and scalability. This enables the service provider to deploy the amount of bandwidth subscribers need rather than being restricted by bandwidth limitations dictated by legacy technology.

Carrier Ethernet is an infrastructure technology that can be implemented over many different types of transport network technologies including Ethernet over Fiber, Ethernet over SONET/SDH, Ethernet over MPLS, Ethernet over Copper, and more.

Walker and Associates offers a wide range of Carrier Ethernet solutions to help service providers and operators extend their reach with applications that run over fiber, copper, or TDM. Examples of Carrier Ethernet applications and solutions include:

Ethernet over Copper

Ethernet over Copper (EoCu) solutions enables service providers to extend packet-based business class services by leveraging existing investment of copper-based assets.

Ethernet over Fiber

Ethernet over Fiber (EoF) access solutions provide cost-effective business class and mobile backhaul solutions up to 10Gbps.

Ethernet over TDM

Carrier Ethernet over TDM (EoTDM) allows service providers to deliver services to any business that is serviced by TDM services today, delivering to customers that reside both on and off-network.

Multi-Service Ethernet

Extend service footprint with multi-service Ethernet on a single platform and deliver Ethernet and IP services regardless of the access infrastructure in place.
