Yankee Group Research shows Ethernet growing rapidly in Asia Pacific

According to "Big Bandwidth, Low Prices: Asia's Speed Demons Review", published by the Yankee Group, several factors are driving the boom of the Asia-Pacific wide-area Ethernet market including surging bandwidth requirements, the ability to provision bandwidth on-demand and a gradual network migration. Asia-Pacific is the second largest market after Europe in terms of revenue from Ethernet services, totaling $676.5 million in 2005. Most service providers in Asia-Pacific offer their Ethernet services over an MPLS-based IP VPN network. Although Metro Ethernet is gaining momentum in the corporate networking arena, the capability to offer enhanced manageability and service performance remains critical for service providers to stand out and win enterprise business.
