Yet another tech anniversary, we recently celebrated 40 years since the first mobile phone call made by Dr Martin Cooper of Motorola, well here’s another 40th, this time it’s Ethernet!
Ethernet started life as a shared media LAN technology however over the last 10 years it’s evolved from LAN to WAN and nowadays it’s a Global Area Networking technology enabled by Carrier Ethernet as championed by the MEF: http://metroethernetforum.org.
