The kids are back in school. The mornings have the crisp feel of Fall. It's true, summer is over. But that doesn't mean you can't relive summer camp.  Carrier Ethernet Summer Camp that is. 

That's because we have posted all four sessions from our 2016 Carrier Ethernet Summer Camp to our YouTube channel.  Our experts John Hawkins, Brian Lavallée and Bashar Abdullah covered topics that ranged from Power over Ethernet to Packet Synchronization to CPE and TDM-to-Packet migration.

All of these discussions are now available on YouTube, including lively Q&A sessions at the end of each session.  Click on each session below, or you can binge watch all four with this YouTube playlist.

And if all this Carrier Ethernet Summer Camp goodness isn't enough for you, remember that we also have our Essential Guide to Carrier Ethernet eBook, an in-depth, 64-page look at the history of CE, the evolution of Ethernet into a robust and scalable solution for large networks, and use cases that help define where and when to implement CE solutions.
