Metro Ethernet Access Service, A service-first approach in metro and long-haul networks leads to greater customer satisfaction. Demand for bandwidth in the metropolitan-area network (MAN or metro) is exploding, the result of data-intensive applications, new business models that rely on the Internet, and population growth. Increasingly, service providers are meeting that demand with Metro Ethernet Access Services, which are based on Ethernet, IP, and optical technologies. Compared to fixed bandwidth facilities, Metro Ethernet Access Services provide more bandwidth, the ability to provision bandwidth in flexible increments, and better support for converged voice, video, and data services.
