This document is a contribution to the Technical Committee of the Metro Ethernet Forum. This document provides architectural framework to model the Ethernet Services Layer – ETH Layer- of MEF compliant Metro Ethernet Networks (MENs). The ETH Layer architecture framework describes the high-level constructs used to model the various architectural components, their functional elements, and their interconnect relationships. The framework also describes the relationship between ETH Layer functional elements and reference points to other architectural elements in the Transport (TRAN) and Application (APP) layers of the MEF Generic Architecture Framework (MEF 4).
