FEBRUARY 2008 – OIF PACKET TRANSPORT WORKSHOP SERIES – “FOCUS ON PROVIDER ETHERNET NETWORKS”
OIF Workshop: Packet Transport Workshop Series – “Focus on Provider Ethernet Networks”
February 4, 2008
Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA
This workshop was the first of a series of workshops on Packet Transport Technology. Provider Ethernet Networks are a new emerging class of networks based on IEEE 802 standards. Provider Ethernet Networks offer scalability, OAM, reliability, resilience, traffic engineering and service management capabilities that make them suitable for access, metro and backbone networks. The workshop provided an introduction to Provider Ethernet Networks, their evolution, the enabling standards, and examples of their application in multi-service, convergent networks for business and residential services.
The second workshop in this Packet Transport Technology series, Focus on T-MPLS, was held adjacent to the OIF Q208 Meeting.
