U.S. Carrier Ethernet Services Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study presents the U.S. Carrier Ethernet services market forecast for the 2016–2020 time frame."Demand for Ethernet connectivity and higher bandwidth speeds continues to surge with double-digit growth. Today, datacenter connectivity, disaster recovery/business continuity, and datacenter storage replication are the three primary applications driving adoption of Ethernet. Enterprises are also increasing their use of multiple cloud-based applications including the use of AWS for supporting virtualized workloads via direct connect services that require Ethernet connectivity. The availability of new Ethernet on-demand services and emerging requirements for better application performance, Ethernet service assurance, and managing customer experience requirements will also become more critical for Ethernet service providers in differentiating their Ethernet services." — Nav Chander, research manager, Enterprise Telecommunications Services
