The article offers a look at mid-band Ethernet, which the author says extends Ethernet service availability by providing carrier Ethernet services to copper-fed sites. According to the article, mid-band Ethernet provides the same services as metro Ethernet by bonding multiple copper pairs into a single Ethernet link. The author discusses the significance of the widespread availability of Ethernet services, including the fact that it provides a high-speed option for small- and medium-sized businesses and that it allows enterprises to reach branch offices as well as regional offices and headquarters.
