This comprehensive new resource presents applications of MEF’s (Metro Ethernet Forum) Carrier Ethernet architecture and provides insight into building end-to-end systems with third network services like MPLS-TP, VPLS, and PBT. This book includes new use cases and explores the new MEF/CEN specifications, services, and applications. While providing a look into lifecycle service orchestration (LSO), virtualization, and cloud series, this book highlights the pros and cons of these technologies for service providers and enterprise network owners.


Pseudowires architectures, control planes, mutisegment architecture, and multisegment pseudowire setup mechanisms are explained. Ethernet protection is explored, including Automatic Protection Switching (APS) entities, linear protection, ring protection, and link aggregations. This book covers Carrier Ethernet Traffic Management, Carrier Ethernet Operation Administration Management and Performance (OAMP), Circuit Emulation Services (CES), and Carrier Ethernet Local Management Interface (E-LIM). Full chapters on Provider Bridges (PB), Provider Backbone Bridges (PBB), Provider Backbone Transport (PBT), and information modeling are also included in this invaluable resource.
