The telecom industry is moving in the direction of a broadband utility model in which utility computing and storage capabilities are connected by low-latency Ethernet and wavelength services and are delivered to a customer - with an on-demand option - through a single Ethernet user network interface that can handle many applications with SLA guarantees. But more needs to be done for operators to build on-demand cloud networks with broad service coverage. This webinar will explore what innovations are possible in Carrier Ethernet 2.0, MPLS, packet-optical, access, and software technologies to evolve toward a network architecture better optimized for cloud service delivery.
