SPOTLIGHT: Ethernet, IPTV move East


As the Carrier Ethernet market matures and broadband growth begins to slow in the U.S. and Western Europe, there's still a lot of room to grow if you head a little further East. That's what some Ethernet equipment vendors are doing as they establish new offices and ties in Central and Eastern Europe. Those markets may be a little behind other regions in the transition from TDM to IP, but they are growing fast and both incumbent and new carriers are showing a lot of competitive hustle.

Meanwhile, IPTV also has begun to take off in markets like Poland. While IPTV in Western Europe is already a huge success, looking further East might offer vendor a chance to get in on the ground floor of the next IPTV success story.
