9780071393898: Gigabit Ethernet for Metro Area Networks

Gigabit Ethernet has been deployed in the metro space, providing low cost, easily managed bandwidth for intensive applications like video, storage, and ASPs. 10 Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3a) will make the use of Ethernet in the Metro area even more attractive. IDC projects that GigE revenues in the U.S., marked at $155 million in 2001, will grow at 36.7% per year over the next five years, to $741 million in 2006.

From the Back Cover:

PROFITS FROM THE ETHER(NET)

One of the few communications arenas with growing profits, Gigabit Ethernet is carving itself a serious niche in MANs and WANs. No surprise when you look at GigE’s benefits―low cost, easily managed and scalable bandwidth, making it the perfect pipe for ASPs (Application Service Providers) video transport, storage area networks (SANs), and other high-demand data loads.

MAN at Work (GigE-POWERED)

Gigabit Ethernet is the protocol powering more and more MANs and WANs. If you’re on the frontlines of this deployment or want to be, there’s no better source of insight than this guide from top GigE-in-MANs specialist Paul Bedell. Packed with details and guidance you won’t find elsewhere, Gigabit Ethernet for Metro Area Networks rolls out well-organized information on the technology, the standards, the applications, and the market players. It's all wrapped up with a look at some case studies that prove the value of GigE in today's MAN.

A TRACEABLE MAP TO HELP YOU―
* Learn the importance of the new 10 GigE IEEE 802.3ae standard
* Line up GigE against SONET, ATM, Frame Relay, and legacy dedicated transport modes (DS-n) in metro networks
* Size up manufacturers, products, and service providers, including nontraditional players
* Understand the roles of CLECs (Competitive Local Exchange Carriers) and ELECs (Enterprise Local Exchange Carriers)
* Integrate complementary technologies such as DWDM, Resilient Packet Ring (RPR), and next-generation SONET
* Build new features with Ethernet in the MAN, WAN, and LAN
* Get on top of technological trends, next-generation design approaches, and business models for MANs and WANs
* Solve real-world deployment and compatability issues

About the Author:

Paul Bedell obtained an M.S. in Telecommunications Management, with distinction, from Chicago's DePaul University in 1994. In 1995, Bedell designed and has since taught a course on cellular and wireless telecommunications at DePaul University in the Graduate School of Computer Science, Telecom, and Information Systems.

He began his telecommunications career in the United States Army Signal Corps, serving in (West) Germany from 1985 to 1988, where he worked as a multichannel communications equipment operator at a remote signal site. Upon discharge in 1988, Bedell spent five years working for several Fortune 500 companies as a telecommunciations analyst.

From there, he moved to the wireless industry, where he spent five years working for three leading wireless carriers in both the celluarl and PCS industries. He spent two-and-a-half years as a network engineer for United States Cellular. During that time, he designed and implemented fixed and interconnection networks in most regions of the United States. He then moved to PrimeCo Personal Communications, where he managed the build out of the prelaunch fixed network for the metro portion of PrimeCo's Chicago market. Bedell then moved to Aerial Communications (which is now known as T-Mobile), where he designed and managed the build out of Aerial's prelaunch wide area network (WAN).

Bedell moved to Ameritech's long-distance business unit in 1998, Ameritech Communications, Inc. (ACI), where he managed the implementation of ACI's 42-node data network, which supported its new 2,500-mile SONET system that spanned the five Ameritech states. Paul also installed two voice over IP (VoIP) networks at ACI before moving into Data Network Product Marketing in August 2000.

Since August 2000, he has been the Associate Director of Product Marketing at SBC Communications, managing a metro area Ethernet product known as GigaMAN(sm). Bedell managed the expansion of the product into the Pacific Bell and Southwestern Bell territories. GigaMAN was originally introduced by SBC in the Ameritech region in 1999.
