Ethernet is the next big thing in the telecom industry. In the metro network, access capacity is always an issue - not enough bandwidth to offer broadband services which will generate new revenue for service providers. Ethernet has been identified as one of the technologies that can break this spell in the next few years. Then why have we not seen large scale metro Ethernet deployment from any carriers? This article examines the issues in optical Ethernet technology, and the strengths and weakness of works in progress trying to solve them.
