First generation Carrier Ethernet already dominates WAN equipment revenue, and now Carrier Ethernet 2.0 is making it easier for Carriers to meet and exploit the demand that Carrier Ethernet has already fuelled

Cisco Systems Inc, the world's biggest network equipment maker, and EMC Corp, the leading data storage company, are increasingly encroaching on each other's turfs, in a sign their long partnership may be unraveling.
Cisco and EMC have for years collaborated on designing, marketing and cross-selling their products, choosing to go after corporate customers as allies instead of competitors.
Network storage equipment maker Brocade Communication Systems Inc's third-quarter results beat Wall Street estimates, boosted by a 13 percent rise in storage equipment sales, and the company said its chief executive intends to resign.
Shares of the company rose 11 percent after the market-topping results but lost all of their gains on news of the CEO's resignation.
A faltering recovery in the United States and weakness in Europe has hit network equipment makers as telecom service providers, their biggest customers, cut spending and delay purchases of new equipment.
European telecom operators are planning to charge customers more for faster new fourth-generation (4G) mobile services in the hope of recouping massive network investments and clawing back lost pricing power.
It's a risky approach since it could put off recession-weary customers and slow the adoption of a technology that benefits telcos by lowering operating costs and helping reduce network overload.
