Carrier Ethernet Defined


The MEF has defined Carrier Ethernet as

A ubiquitous, standardized, carrier-class Service and Network defined by five attributes that distinguish it from familiar LAN based Ethernet

What is Carrier Ethernet?


Question:
Is it a service, a network, or a technology?

Answer for an end-user


Its a Service defined by 5 attributes

Answer for a service provider


Its a set of certified network elements that connect to transport the services offered to the customer Its a platform for value added services A standardized service for all users

Carrier Ethernet Architecture


In a Carrier Ethernet network, data is transported across Point-to-Point and Multipoint-to-Multipoint Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs) according to the attributes and definitions of the E-Line, E-LAN and E-Tree services

Carrier Ethernet Architecture


Data moves from UNI to UNI across "the network" with a layered architecture.

APP Layer ETH Layer

Application Services Layer Data Plane


(e.g., IP, MPLS, PDH, etc.)

Ethernet Services Layer


(Ethernet Service PDU)

TRAN Layer

Transport Services Layer


(e.g., IEEE 802.1, SONET/SDH, MPLS)

Control Plane

Management Plane
8

When traffic moves between ETH domains is does so at the TRAN layer. This allows Carrier Ethernet traffic to be agnostic to the networks that it traverses.

MEF Carrier Ethernet Terminology


The User Network Interface (UNI)
The UNI is always provided by the Service Provider The UNI in a Carrier Ethernet Network is a physical Ethernet Interface at operating speeds 10Mbs, 100Mbps, 1Gbps or 10Gbps

Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) Service container Connects two or more subscriber sites (UNIs) An association of two or more UNIs Prevents data transfer between sites that are not part of the same EVC Three types of EVCs
Point-to-Point Multipoint-to-Multipoint Rooted Multipoint

Can be bundled or multiplexed on the same UNI Defined in MEF 10.2 technical specification

Carrier Ethernet Terminology


UNI Type I
A UNI compliant with MEF 13 Manually Configurable

UNI Type II
Supports E-Tree Support service OAM, link protection Automatically Configurable via E-LMI Manageable via OAM

Network to Network Interface (NNI)


Network to Network Interface between distinct MEN operated by one or more carriers An active project of the MEF

Metro Ethernet Network (MEN)


An Ethernet transport network connecting user end-points (Expanded to Access and Global networks in addition to the original Metro Network meaning)

Bandwidth Profiles & Traffic Management (1)


Bandwidth Profiles per EVC & per Class of Service Governed by 6 Parameters CIR (Committed Information Rate) CIR defines assured bandwidth Assured via bandwidth reservation, traffic engineering
EIR (Excess Information Rate)

EIR bandwidth is considered excess EIR improves the networks Goodput Traffic dropped at congestion points in the network
CBS/EBS (Committed/Excess Burst Size in bytes)

EVC-1

EVC-2

Higher burst size results in improved performance Color Mode (Color Aware or Color Blind) When set as Color Aware governs discard eligibility Marking typically done at ingress Green Forwarded frames CIR conforming traffic Yellow Discard Eligible frames Over CIR , within EIR Red Discarded frames Exceeds EIR

EIR

EVC-3

Coupling Flag (set to 1 or 0) governs which frames are classed as yellow
