The IP/MPLS Forum said it has started developing a new set of MPLS-based specifications and requirements supporting carrier Ethernet services as defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum.

This new work item is essential as service providers around the world extend MPLS beyond the edge and core of their network and meet the growing demand for quadruple play service offerings.

The IP/MPLS Forum\'s work will support both carrier Ethernet using Layer 2 VPN services as well as interworking with Provider Bridging Ethernet supporting Q-in-Q and MAC-in-MAC.
