The article focuses on the transition from time domain multiplexed (TDM)-based systems to Ethernet or Internet-protocol (IP)-based systems in the U.S. It emphasizes the need for telecommunication carriers to switch to Ethernet as they move to the next-generation technologies such as worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) and long term evolution (LTE). It is suggested that people who consider Ethernet should spend time thinking about the operational aspects of the system.
