Phil Tilley - Alcatel Lucent - Carrier Ethernet and MEF

  1. 1. Phil TilleyGlobal Marketing Senior Director, Co-Chair European Marketing, IPD 1
  2. 2. Session Topics• Ten Years of Achievements – Impact of Carrier Ethernet and the Work of the MEF – Carrier Ethernet Fundamentals & Applications – MEF Community 2
  3. 3. Carrier Ethernet Defined The MEF has defined Carrier Ethernet as A ubiquitous, standardized, carrier-class Service and Network defined by five attributes that distinguish it from familiar LAN based EthernetIn the IT and Enterprise Communities,Carrier Ethernet is often referred to asEthernet Business Services 3
  4. 4. Impact of Carrier Ethernet & Work of the MEFRobust Business Services Specifications &Highest Growth Market  On track for $50bn revenues  Global adoption of more than 30 MEF Specifications  Supporting broad range of applications and vertical markets  Ethernet is the access of choice for IP servicesPreferred Solution Mobile BackhaulCarrier Ethernet as a Transport Infrastructure  Global adoption Supporting Residential, Business and Mobile Traffic 4

  24. 24. Carrier Ethernet as Ethernet Cloud Carrier• The MEF is engaged in new developments that addresses key issues for Cloud Providers and Cloud Consumers alike: The secure, business-class delivery of cloud-based applications to businesses• This work opens up significant new markets for Cloud Providers and Cloud Carriers 25
  25. 25. Cloud Service Delivery to Business … • The network is critical to performance of cloud services but there has been little focus by Cloud Community • Enterprise acceptance of cloud services delivered via the Internet is challenged by lack of security, performance, privacy, data governance and compliance • Of specific concern is delivery of mission critical Private Cloud applications via the Internet Internet Delivery Cloud Provider(s) Insecure, Unpredictable, Internet Erratic performance, Regulatory issuesEnterprise Uncontrolled by ITCloudConsumers 26
  26. 26. Cloud Service Delivery via Carrier Ethernet• Ideal for delivering applications to Enterprises – Initially for  Private Cloud Applications and  Internet and later  as integrated – Not a replacement for all Internet delivery• Removes Cloud Provider & Enterprise roadblocks• Generates new incremental on-demand revenue Public User Independent Cloud Providers (Cloud Consumers) Internet Secure,   Deterministic Ethernet Cloud Carrier QoS enabled Per application SLA No regulatory issues  Enterprise IT Manageable Private Cloud Consumers Cloud 27
  27. 27. Summary• Carrier Ethernet as Cloud Delivery Service will have impact on all parties – Enterprises: Puts IT in control • Predictable, high performance, secure and controlled access to mission critical cloud applications – Cloud Providers: dramatically increases scalability • Normalized access to millions of Enterprise Cloud consumers from one standardized interface – Carrier Ethernet Cloud Carriers: a massive value added service for the future • Creates architecture for long term customer retention as direct and indirect supplier of key cloud applications 28
  28. 28. Optimizing Mobile Backhaul with Carrier Ethernet Implementations with single class of service Delay-sensitive Bursty, delay & loss real time data tolerant data Access Mobile Provider Data from all calls, applications, provisioned as one class Operator Result/Impact • Extremely costly – needs massive overbuild to accommodate delay and loss sensitive traffic • Does not scale - recipe for going out of business Optimization with Carrier Ethernet Multi-CoS Access Delay-sensitive real time data High Priority Provider Bursty, delay & loss Low Priority tolerant data Mobile Operator Only real time data provisioned as real time - optimized use of bandwidth, fully without loss of quality • More Revenue for same cost • More users supported with much more responsive QoS • Avoids over-building network to ensure integrity, QoSResult/Impact • Low priority Internet traffic (80% of volume) candidate for discard in very high peak times • Squeezes best performance from the network to maximize profitabilityRecommended Prioritization by CoS -1. Network control, signaling 2. Interactive voice, video, 3, business data, 4 Internet data, streamed video
