Lightpath, Ciena, CableLabs and the Metro Ethernet Forum talk business services strategy Speaking of Ethernet services, Communications Technology and Ciena presented on cable’s use of Carrier Ethernet services, including the enabling of business services and the certification process by the Metro Ethernet Forum.

In April 2006, Cablevision‘s Optimum Lightpath became the first cable company to receive MEF certification for its Carrier Ethernet services. Since then, the growing relationship between cable and Carrier Ethernet has become a regular news feature. Why is this happening now? To what extent is this a vital strategic move for the cable industry? How does this help tap the vital small-medium enterprise market ahead of the big telco players?

This Webcast brings together a cable operator employee from Optimum Lightpath who is using Carrier Ethernet with representatives from Ciena, CableLabs and the Metro Ethernet Forum to discuss these issues and explain their evolving strategies and vision for the cable industry’s greater commitment to delivering business services.
