Celebrating 40 Years of Ethernet Innovation – Session 3 – Panel 3b – Ethernet in carrier networks
Introduced and Chaired by Tam Dell’Oro, Founder & President, Dell’Oro Group
In this panel, senior executives from service providers and carrier solution vendors discuss the relatively recent role of Ethernet in bridging the “telechasm” separating the LAN and WAN. As Ethernet approaches the universal language predicted by Nan Chen, it looks less and less like a networking technology, and more and more like a service offering — with serious implications for the carrier market. Our panel needs to identify the critical issues and lay down a new road map for the way forward.
Panellists: Howard Charney, Senior Vice President, Office of the President, Cisco; Said Ouissal, Vice President, Juniper ; Mark Durrett, Director, Marketing, Overture; James Walker, Vice President, Managed Network Services, TATA Communications ; Ms Yali Z Liu, Executive Director, Product Technology, Verizon
