10Gbe is being embraced by a wide variety of Carrier Ethernet and other Metronet-focused service providers.  Hosting a high-speed WAN allows for robust VoIP, video conferencing, and cloud-based applications without any end-client slowdown.  With the Metronet field becoming increasingly crowded, it's vital that service providers keep up with the high-end, high-speed demands of their customers.

Some growth-focused smaller companies may even benefit from an early investment in 10Gbe networking technologies. While it will undoubtedly be replaced one day, a company investing in a 10 gigabit Ethernet  switch now could be assured that it will be many years before their needs exceed their bandwidth capacity.  This allows them wide latitude in planning network upgrades for several years to come.
