Global Expansion from Metro to Carrier Ethernet
• The Beginning: Metro Ethernet
– The MEF was formed in 2001 to develop ubiquitous business services for
Enterprise users principally accessed over optical metropolitan networks
to connect their Enterprise LANs
• Expansion to Carrier Ethernet
– The success of Metro Ethernet Services caught the imagination of the
world as the concept expanded to include
• Worldwide services traversing national and global networks
• Access networks to provide availability to a much wider class of user
over fiber, copper, cable, PON, and wireless
• Economy of scale from the resulting converged business, residential
and wireless networks sharing the same infrastructure and services
• Scalability & rapid deployment of business applications
• Adoption of the certification program
– While retaining the cost model and simplicity of Ethernet

Carrier Ethernet Defined
for Service Providers:
for Business Users:
A set of certified network elements
that connect to transport Carrier
Ethernet services for all users, locally
& worldwide
A ubiquitous, standardized, carrierclass Service and Network defined
by five attributes that distinguish it
from familiar
LAN based Ethernet
Carrier Ethernet services are carried
over physical
Ethernet networks and
other legacy transport
technologies
5
The 5 Attributes Carrier Ethernet (1)
Attribute 1: Standardized Services
• E-Line, E-LAN provide transparent, private line, virtual private line
and multi-point to multi-point LAN services.
• A ubiquitous service providing globally & locally via standardized
equipment
• Requires no changes to customer LAN equipment or networks and
accommodates existing network connectivity such as, timesensitive, TDM traffic and signaling
• Ideally suited to converged voice, video & data networks
• Wide choice and granularity of bandwidth and
quality of service options
6
The 5 Attributes Carrier Ethernet (2)
Attribute 2: Scalability
• The ability for millions to use a network service that is ideal for the
widest variety of business, information, communications and
entertainment applications with voice, video and data
• Spans Access & Metro to National & Global Services over a wide
variety of physical infrastructures implemented by a wide range of
Service Providers
• Scalability of bandwidth from 1Mbps to 10Gbps
and beyond, in granular increments
7
The 5 Attributes Carrier Ethernet (3)
Attribute 3: Reliability
• The ability for the network to detect & recover from incidents
without impacting users
• Meeting the most demanding quality and availability requirements
• Rapid recovery time when problems do occur, as low as 50ms
8
The 5 Attributes Carrier Ethernet (4)
Attribute 4: Quality of Service
• Wide choice and granularity of bandwidth and quality of service
options
• Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that deliver end-to-end
performance matching the requirements for voice, video and data
over converged business and residential networks
• Provisioning via SLAs that provide end-to-end performance based
on CIR, frame loss, delay and delay variation characteristics
9
The 5 Attributes Carrier Ethernet (5)
Attribute 5: Service Management
• The ability to monitor, diagnose and centrally manage the network,
using standards-based vendor independent implementations
• Carrier-class OAM
• Rapid service provisioning
10
Carrier Ethernet Terminology
• UNI (User-to-Network Interface)
–
–
Physical interface/demarcation between service provider and subscriber
Service start/end point
• Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC)
–
An association of two or more UNIs
• Three types of EVC
–
–
–
Point-to-Point
Multipoint-to-Multipoint
Rooted Multipoint (Point-to-Multipoint)
• EVCs and Services
In a Carrier Ethernet network, data is transported across Point-to-Point, Point-toMultipoint and Multipoint-to-Multipoint EVCs according to the attributes and
definitions of the E-Line and E-LAN services
• NNI (Network-to-Network Interface)
–
Demarcation/peering point
• Between service providers (ENNI)
• Between service provider internal networks (I-NNI)

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
