Trade Publication
The article reports that the market for Carrier Ethernet switches, devices used by Service Providers in the access and aggregation portions of their infrastructures, showed continued growth in the third quarter of 2006. The majority of the revenue goes to Gigabit Ethernet, which has become the most common technology for traffic aggregation, while Fast Ethernet represents the majority of the port shipment mix. A graph comparing the sales of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet is provided.
