Ethernet equipment is finding increased adoption in the
Mobile Backhaul market. With the expansion of communication networks, there is
a requirement for scaling backhaul infrastructure.


Ethernet equipment provides cost-efficient solutions
with higher bandwidth support. Further, Ethernet equipment networks provide
reliable and scalable infrastructure that can be easily managed by
communication service providers,” said an analyst from TechNavio’s Data Centers


A few months back,  market
research firm Infonetics Research has forecasted that carrier Ethernet
equipment market will grow from $37.5 billion in 2011 to $40.2 billion by 2015.


Infonetics forecasted 15.7 percent growth in the global
