Metro Ethernet technology has become an integral element of today's telecommunications industry. Metro Ethernet, with its sophisticated carrier-class features, has significantly transformed the telecom industry and has enabled the industry to provide numerous services to vast areas at a lower cost. The technology extends flexibility to be positioned as a point-to-point connectivity or Internet access in a cost-efficient manner. Several carriers are increasingly deploying large-scale Metro Ethernet networks not only for the delivery of the triple play services, but also for delivery of Ethernet private lines, virtual private lines, and Ethernet virtual private LAN services.
