Ethernet Trends Case Study
Ethernet technology is becoming an increasingly attractive alternative to traditional networking technologies like SONET, Frame Relay and ATM. it has been used for decades as the fundamental building block for most Local Area Networks (LANs). Across the Wide Area Network (WAN), however, early Ethernet technologies could not meet the demands for building long-distance phone networks — SONET was the technology of choice. SONET was the core; Ethernet was the edge. Download this case study to learn more.
