  2. 2. Characteristics of Today’s Business Applications More business processes are automated 1980‟s Applications Require increasing amounts of capacity run on computers 2010‟s Applications Chattier – latency is an issue run on networks Accessed by multiple constituents, via multiple device types, from multiple geographies Multiple delivery models – packaged software, SaaS, cloud Complex data types comprised of voice, data and video IT Challenge: Deliver Consistent Application Performance 2010 Level 3 Communications, LLC. All Rights Reserved. 2
  3. 3. Enterprise Network Demands: The bottom line It‟s about Accessibility  Downtime is unacceptable It‟s about Your Business Applications  Performance Assurance • Business communications and operations must be treated as vital end-to-end  Application Persistence • On-the-move session persistence  Visibility and Control • Can‟t manage what cannot be seen It‟s about Expense Predictability and Simplicity  If not straightforward, lose a portion of the purported benefits It‟s about Private Communications  All networks are shared networks, but communications must remain private 2010 Level 3 Communications, LLC.

  5. 5. The Global Ethernet Access Services Market Ethernet is becoming the preferred way for businesses to connect to the network Ethernet Delivers  Almost every application an end user needs can be delivered over Ethernet  Web, E-mail, Storage, VoIP, Video Conferencing, Streaming …. Ethernet Access represents the largest market opportunity Ethernet is truly “Plug and Play” 2010 Level 3 Communications, LLC. All Rights Reserved. 5
  6. 6. Carrier Ethernet Carrier Ethernet is a ubiquitous, standardized, carrier-class Service and Network defined by five attributes that distinguish Carrier Ethernet from familiar LAN-based Ethernet  Standardized Services  Scalability  Reliability  Quality of Service  Service Management It provides native Ethernet packet access which presents a direct challenge to the traditional SONET telephony infrastructure It provides Wide Area networking scalable beyond 10Gbps using ubiquitous Ethernet technology Carrier Ethernet services include all layer 2 services sold under various names –  E-Line/E-LAN  Ethernet virtual private line (EVPL)  Transparent or native LAN  Layer 2 virtual private network (VPN)  Metro Ethernet  Ethernet access  Ethernet private line (EPL)  Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS). 2010 Level 3 Communications, LLC.

  13. 13. Enhancing the User Experience Ethernet has evolved from a „local‟ private network protocol to become part of the WAN network Carriers and equipment vendors need to adopt and implement standards to provide the same level of OAM&P support that users have come to expect with any other public telecom service  IEEE 802.1ag - Connectivity Fault Management for VLANs • Continuity check • Link trace • Loopback  RFC 2544 - Network Interconnecting Devices • Frame Loss • Latency • Packet Jitter  ITU - Y.1731 - ITUs version of IEEE 802.ag 2010 Level 3 Communications, LLC.
