Communications and networking technologies continue to evolve at a rapid pace, and organizations that fail to stay on top of these developments and implement change as it’s needed risk being at a huge competitive disadvantage.

Just think of the emergence and growth of cloud computing, social networking, and mobile technology in the workplace over the past several years and you can see how much things have changed and how reliant companies have become on these newer solutions.

One of the keys to leveraging technologies such as cloud computing, voice over IP (VoIP), and unified communications (UC) is updating the communications infrastructure. Organizations need to consider migrating from older WAN technology to modern Ethernet-based services such as Metro Ethernet.

Metro Ethernet is a metropolitan area network (MAN) based on Ethernet standards and is often used to connect subscribers to a larger service network or the Internet.

This white paper highlights the key reasons for moving from a traditional time division multiplexing (TDM) network to an Ethernet network. These reasons include the compelling nature of the cloud, the solidification of VoIP as a key part of corporate communications strategies, the demise of T1, the emergence of UC as a business necessity, and the availability of network service providers that can help guide a successful migration to Ethernet.
