The article discusses the growth of Ethernet services within the metro network. Metro infrastructure is shaped by three major forces: traffic patterns, regulatory policy, and technology tradeoffs, with most traffic flowing in the spae of a star-like pattern due to the fact that content needs to be hosted in one specific centralized point. The author predicts that in 2007 the metro network will come into its own, with businesses and federal governments seeing them for what they are and allowing providers to merge access and long-distance networks.
