Ethernet is, without a doubt, one of the most important communications technologies developed in the last 30-plus years. High-performance Ethernet, known commonly as Carrier Ethernet, is rapidly becoming the technology of choice for controlling network communications costs, consolidating services onto a common infrastructure, and enabling more tailored services for consumers, enterprises, and operators.
Since its inception 11 years ago, Light Reading’s mission has been to provide the most comprehensive, informative coverage of the Ethernet revolution. Our Ethernet events have garnered a reputation for attracting the best speakers and delivering the most up-to-date analyses of the latest trends in the Carrier Ethernet market. And with hundreds of service provider network planners, engineers and marketing professionals typically attending the conference and show floor, they have proven to be extraordinary networking opportunities.
Light Reading’s Ethernet Expo is the premier event covering the hot topic of Carrier Ethernet network technologies and services in North America. Ethernet Expo assembles dozens of experts from the service provider, supplier, and analyst communities to explore the hottest trends and paint a roadmap for where Ethernet is likely to take us through the rest of this decade. Ethernet Expo includes two parts: a conference, moderated by analysts from Light Reading’s market research division, Heavy Reading, and an exhibition.
