Product Portfolio: Carrier Ethernet | Standard Type: Architecture

Summary:

Defines an abstract set of Ethernet Service Constructs that are widely applicable regardless of how the UNI-to-UNI Network may be sugmented by providers


Abstract:

There are many ways in which Service Provider technology can be deployed to support the UNI-to-UNI Ethernet Services Attributes specified in MEF 10.2. The network between these UNIs can be broken up into smaller Ethernet Sub-Networks with defined interfaces between them. This document defines an abstract set of Ethernet Service Constructs that are widely ap-plicable regardless of how the UNI-to-UNI Network is broken down. Follow-on MEF specifica-tions that wish to define specific types of Ethernet Sub-Networks or interfaces can do so by re-ferring to and building upon this specification.
