Year-End 2020 U.S. Carrier Ethernet LEADERBOARD

U.S. Ethernet port growth was flat in 2020 as service implementations were disrupted by COVID-19, and enterprises pivoted from Ethernet-connected MPLS networks to Managed SD-WANs. The major bright spot during the past year has been rising demand for secure, multi-gigabit Ethernet connectivity to data centers and other high traffic sites.
