Taking into account most all major data carriers already offer Ethernet services, the market is expected to grow at a compounded rate of nearly 25 percent year over year. This would result in an increase from roughly 3.1 billion dollars in 2010 to about 9.7 billion dollars in 2015.
According to this Ethernet study, U.S. demand for Ethernet service hasn’t dropped…even during the recent economic downturn. The report also foresees increased demand that will peak in 2011, where rates of revenue growth should reach approximately 29 percent on a compound annual basis. These Ethernet services are marketed under any number of names, including Ethernet access, native LAN, transparent LAN, Ethernet private line, Ethernet virtual private line, Gigabit Ethernet, GigE, virtual private LAN, Layer 2 virtual private network, and metro Ethernet.
