Small and Medium Enterprise customers are rapidly adopting high speed Carrier Ethernet access now thanks to the Cloud, and this is creating a sizable market opportunity for the telecom service provider. But providing these customers with scalable, high-performance Ethernet is a real challenge. SMEs want more bandwidth than N x T1/E1 can scale to offer cost effectively, but do not generate enough bandwidth for the service provider to justify running fiber to them. And there is no time to delay in finding a better solution, because every day they wait more customers are lost to cable operators and other new competitors. Join LightReading and Actelis in this webinar detailing how ILECs/PTTs, IOCs, CLECs and ISPs can provide over 100 Mbps to buildings and make satisfying SME demand for Carrier Ethernet a highly profitable business using EFM over copper.
