Cloud adoption will lead to Carrier Ethernet: Vertel

Telco vendor also sees Disaster Recovery as a Service gaining further traction in coming months

As more and more businesses move towards a pure or hybrid Cloud model of doing business, telco, Vertel, predicts this will lead to growing interest in Carrier Ethernet services.

Managing director, Andrew Findlay, has pegged Carrier Ethernet as the potential new networking standard of choice for organisations this year.

“There will be an increase in demand for the 2.0 version of Carrier Ethernet, which allows service providers to offer very granular quality of service (QoS) settings to customers,” Findlay said.

This is highlighted as an important development as businesses are expected to become fully reliant on accessing the services they use for business.

“This will be a terrific opportunity for integrators and solution providers to offer high-speed network access, with guaranteed service level agreements in addition to services like Unified Communications as a Service, Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) and Cloud storage,” Findlay said.

Organisations are also encouraged by Findlay to investigate fully redundant network connections over the coming months.

“If a business cannot access the Cloud or a range of services, which were traditionally delivered through physical hardware, this will hurt productivity and reduce the organisations ability to achieve its business outcomes,” he said.

An emerging Cloud service that Findlay plans to keep a close eye on is Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

Like many Cloud services, DRaaS is a predetermined set of processes developed by a third party vendor to help businesses develop and execute an IT function, in this case disaster recovery plans.

“We see the growing need to for businesses to purchase fully redundant links in conjunction with DRaaS solutions as key drivers for integrators and vendors alike,” Findlay said.
