New peering standards for Ethernet Exchanges

Cisco

Service providers worldwide have increasingly turned to Ethernet technologies due to their scalability, simplicity, increasingly sophisticated management features, and lower costs as compared to older networking technologies.

With the ratification of new standards, Ethernet has evolved to the point where it is now a viable carrier interconnect solution as well.

This white paper provides an overview of the new standards and technologies that enable:

  • Many-to-many Ethernet interconnections among service providers with uniform handoffs that simplify provisioning, upgrades, and troubleshooting
  • Uniform mapping of class-of-service (CoS) attributes end-to-end
  • Cost-effective, scalable, and secure deployment of Carrier Ethernet services
  • Reduced time to revenue
