Relationship to other Standards
Bodies
14
Part of International Standards Community
Working outward
from the core
Working inward
from the edge
Making it work
together
The MEF’s role is largely additive to these organizations, developing necessary
additional specifications that are required to enable Carrier Ethernet. The MEF
also provides inputs in support of Carrier Ethernet to these bodies via its
participating members and liaisons.
It is not within the scope of the MEF to endorse or otherwise the work of other
standards bodies and associations
15
What Do We Mean By “Ethernet?”
• Ethernet as a point-to-point link
 IEEE 802.3 view
• Ethernet as a packet switched network (PSN)
infrastructure
 IEEE 802.1 (bridging) view
 ITU-T SG15 / SG13 managed Ethernet network view
• Ethernet as a service
 MEF view – user-to-user transfer of 802.3 frames
over any transport layer
 E-Line, E-LAN and E-Tree
16
Complementary Standards Activities
Goals
• Reach consensus, bring MEF work to other bodies, re-use work of other bodies, work
with other bodies, avoid duplication, keep in communications
Scalability

Global Expansion to Carrier Ethernet
• Relationship between the MEF Specifications and
Carrier Ethernet
– The technical work of the MEF as described in the
specifications, together with the work of associated standards
bodies, collectively enable the functionality and attributes of
Carrier Ethernet
– The completed specifications continue to refer to MENs (Metro
Ethernet Networks) but this is now a generic term covering the
enabled service network in the increasing variety of access,
metro and long haul networks

Three Types of Specifications
• Technical Specifications
– They include architectural and abstract models required to create a robust platform
of technical requirements and definitions
– They are the principal documents that define mandatory and optional elements,
attributes etc., of the elements of a Carrier Ethernet network (UNI, Services, NNI,
etc)
• Implementation Agreements
– These typically quantify specific parameters and attributes called out in the
technical specifications so that consistent, interoperable implementation can occur
• Abstract Test Suites
– These consist of a series of tests to be used to measure conformance to certain
MEF specifications.
– They are intended to be used to create specific test plans such as those used in the
MEF Certification Program
Note:
The MEF specifications are written by representatives from the member companies who give their time to the work
in the interests of the industry. Their various backgrounds and style are reflected n the MEF specifications

Terminology
• Terminology
– There are a great number of definitions in each specification. Where
possible they reuse common understanding of terms in other standards
bodies such as the ITU
– A full glossary of terms used in the MEF Specifications is also available in
the Information Center of the MEF Public Web Site
• Compliance terminology common to all specifications
– The level of mandatory and optional compliance to the implementation
agreement uses the familiar RFC 2119 terminology

The Hybrid NID Service (HNS)
The Hybrid NID Service (HNS) - a standard MEF defined
service provided by an Out of Franchise (OOF) Operator:
– A tunnel through the OOF network, between ENNI and NID
– SP Management Interface (RMI) channel
– A standard set of managed objects for the SP
