Revenue For U.S. Ethernet Services Exceeded $6 Billion In 2011 Despite Price Compression.

Ethernet Services Top $6 Billion in 2011
Written by Erin Dunne

BOSTON , MA, JANUARY 24, 2012 -- Vertical Systems Group's research on end-site Ethernet service installations confirms that the U.S. market topped $6 billion in 2011. Revenue growth was solid despite ongoing compression of average street prices. Total market revenue includes all Carrier Ethernet services and associated rate elements.

"2011 was an upbeat year for the U.S. Ethernet services market, even though competitive pricing pressures were clearly evident, particularly for mid-speed services," said Rick Malone, principal at Vertical Systems Group. "Economic uncertainty was also a challenge for Ethernet Service Providers competing in the U.S. market, but much less so than in markets throughout Europe."

The latest analysis also indicates steady base expansion for each of the three major U.S. Ethernet provider segments: Incumbent Carrier, Competitive Provider and Cable MSO. Final 2011 U.S. and Global LEADERBOARD market share rankings will be released publicly in early February. Detailed share results are available to subscribers of Vertical Systems Group's syndicated ENS research service.

History has shown us NANOG is always an outstanding opportunity to meet new contacts and to catch up with colleagues in the field of network operations. Each year, our Telx team looks forward to gathering with other network operations professionals to share information, learn advanced networking techniques, and discover new network applications. With all of the new technologies transforming the network operations industry recently, this year's NANOG will certainly offer more education than ever.

NANOG 54 is quickly approaching! NANOGers will be gathering in the Westin Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego’s vibrant Gaslamp Quarter for the NANOG spring meeting. After the NANOG daily events, attendees will find one of Southern California's premier dining, shopping, and entertainment districts.

NANOG 54 takes place on February 5-8, 2012 and offers a great opportunity to freshen up your skills, learn advanced networking techniques, and discover new network applications. The NANOG Program will again feature tutorials and tracks sessions, and highlight issues relating to technology already deployed, or soon-to-be deployed, in the Internet.
