CloudEthernet Forum

The CloudEthernet Forum is a global industry alliance founded to address the need for scaling and enhancing Ethernet technology to meet the stringent demands of delivering cloud services.

The CloudEthernet Forum’s membership comprises cloud, data center and WAN service providers as well as system integrators and network equipment manufacturers.
