The ultimate goal of Metro Ethernet is to provide a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service that can connect multiple LANs that are either within the same metro area or spread across geographically disparate metro areas such that they behave as if they were all attached to the same Ethernet LAN. An emerging standard called Virtual Private LAN services (VPLS) provides the promise of delivering on this vision. However, not all implementations of VPLS offer the same operational efficiencies. This paper highlights the differences between two leading IETF drafts and deals with specific issues related to Research & Education Networking environment that requires end-to-end solutions across multiple domains.



This presentation is part of session "Last Mile" which starts at Monday, June 7 @ 16:00
