MEF 12.1 Carrier Ethernet Network Architecture Framework Part 2: Ethernet Services Layer – Basic Elements
This document provides the architectural framework to model the Ethernet Services Layer of MEF compliant Carrier Ethernet Networks. It also introduces the base functional elements of the MEF architecture.
This document provides the architectural framework to model the Ethernet Services Layer of MEF compliant Carrier Ethernet Networks. It also introduces the base functional elements of the MEF architecture. The Ethernet Service Layer architecture framework describes the high-level topological and functional constructs used to model the various architectural components of subscriber and provider networks, their associated functional elements, and their interconnect relationships. The architecture framework also describes the relationship between Ethernet Services Layer functional elements and their reference points, and other architectural elements in the Transport Layer (TRAN) and Application (APP) Layers of the MEF Generic Architecture Framework (MEF 4).
