Connection-Oriented Ethernet
 Ideal convergence technology for:
 Mobile/Cell Tower Backhaul
 High Performance Business Ethernet Services
 Why ?
 Guaranteed CIR
• CIR bandwidth reserved per EVC, OVC or CoS
• CIR-based services unaffected by oversubscribed (EIR) services
 Consistent QoS Performance
• EVC or OVC traverses pre-determined working or protect path
• Paths engineered to meet service packet latency & loss requirements
 High Security
• COE uses few protocols
• The more protocols, the more security vulnerabilities
COE provides the Flexibility and Scalability of Ethernet
with the Performance, Reliability and Security of SONET

Improving Network Bandwidth Efficiency
- COE over SONET
 Ethernet over SONET (EoS) Challenges
1. EoS doesn’t support aggregation
• EoS is a port-based service
• Ethernet switch added for aggregation

2. EoS service bandwidth dictated by SONET
• EoS bandwidth in 50Mbps STS increments
• Other EVC/OVC rates waste SONET bandwidth

Improving Network Bandwidth Efficiency
- COE over OTN
 Ethernet over OTN Challenges
 OTN isn’t efficient under 1Gbps
• Smallest container size is ODU0 (1.25Gbps)
• Most popular Ethernet services are < 1Gbps
1.25Gbps 1GbE
ODU0
~800Mbps
wasted
200Mbps EVC
 OTN doesn’t support bandwidth oversubscription
• A Layer 1 service doesn’t provide statistical multiplexing
 COE over OTN
 COE aggregates EVCs/OVCs
• Significantly improved bandwidth utilization for Ethernet services < 1Gbps
• Also supports oversubscribed EIR bandwidth
500Mbps EVC
1.25Gbps
ODU0
1GbE
4x100Mbps EVC
2x50Mbps EVC
COE + OTN = A very bandwidth efficient solution
