Abstract (40-Word Limit): We study the effectiveness of deploying 100Gb/s Ethernet services using parallel 4x28Gb/s channels in metropolitan networks already supporting legacy single-channels services. The successful set up of these services is shown to heavily depend on the planning methodology, multi-channel transponder tunability, and single-channel services load share.
