This report is centered on communications service provider perspectives shared at Light Reading's Ethernet Expo Americas event held in New York City during November 6-8, 2012. This is the third report prepared by Heavy Reading that captures service provider highlights from Light Reading's popular and longstanding Ethernet events. It leverages Heavy Reading's unique ability to assemble many of the industry's leading service provider and technology experts to spotlight key trends, progress and challenges for the carrier Ethernet (CE) industry. The report provides a window into the evolution of the carrier Ethernet and software-defined networking (SDN) markets unavailable from any other source.

Nearly all of the service provider speakers at the Expo were members of Heavy Reading's global Ethernet Executive Council (EEC). Launched in September 2011, the EEC is a value-rich community of 124+ senior service and technology experts from 76+ service providers worldwide. These individuals represent a Who's Who of professionals shaping the direction of the carrier Ethernet and Ethernet-enabled cloud services markets and helping guide the development of advanced network technologies. Views expressed by equipment vendors and other non-service provider speakers at Ethernet Expo are beyond the scope of this report.

SDN, Carrier Ethernet 2.0 & Cloud Converge captures the perspectives of these service provider speakers, who covered a wide range of topics regarding SDN, carrier Ethernet 2.0 and cloud services and technology. This is a must-have report for industry players and investors who want to keep up with latest trends, because it provides unique insight into the opinions and strategies of many senior professionals shaping the direction of the carrier Ethernet and SDN markets.

SDN, Carrier Ethernet 2.0 & Cloud Converge includes perspectives from 21 SDN, carrier Ethernet and cloud service providers, including many EEC members and special guests.

Margaret Chiosi, the Executive Director of AT&T Labs, has been co-leading the MEF's cloud-related initiatives and is a founder of the recently formed NFV forum within ETSI. She shared her thoughts on SDN and how operators anticipate using SDN technology, including virtualization. Chiosi shared a perspective on how MEF CE 2.0 fits into the SDN environment. Up to now, the MEF has focused on service definitions for the WAN, but the organization is having deep discussions about defining intra-data center (LAN) CE services.

Excerpt 1: SDN & MEF Framework

Mike Rouleau, SVP of Business Development & Strategy at tw telecom, gave a keynote focused on the evolution of CE networks for on-demand cloud services. He explained important challenges faced by IT professionals, highlighted the industry's transition to a dynamic Telco 2.0 service model, identified key network capabilities that enable cloud and shared his outlook for SDN-enabled real-time capacity management and cloud broker services. Characteristics of the Telco 2.0 service model are highlighted in the excerpt below.
