The proposals have been analyzed and categorized according to their degree of pertinence by the members of the scientific committee.
This year, the traditional debate will address OAM issues of MPLS-TP. As each year, the panel will propose a fruitful confrontation between equipment vendors and service providers.
MPLS & Ethernet World and the Carrier Ethernet Workshop will once again allow us to benefit from the enlightenment of the precise stakes involved in the convergence of the MPLS & Ethernet protocols, particularly their respective roles in the access networks.
A second conference called “Ethernet Wholesale” will be organised at the same time, same place. It will cover in detail the various offers by the service providers, in relation to regulation on unbundling and new concerns like Network Monetisation.
|| The fourth edition of the Carrier Ethernet Worshop will discuss technological and implementation detailed issues in parallel with the traditional MPLS Tutorial addressed by the Broadband Forum. The workshop will be addressed by the MEF ambassadors for the standardization process review. Other sessions will welcome vendors for business models and solutions descriptions and carriers for deployment reports.
The major manufacturers all participate in this platform showcasing service and product interoperability.
The EANTC in collaboration with Upperside will invite industrials to a multi-vendor MPLS & Ethernet interoperability test in January 2010.
The EANTC will evaluate state of the art MPLS & Ethernet architectures and applications in a detailed technical hot-staging.
The test results will be demonstrated in a public showcase during the MPLS & Ethernet World Congress 2010. Service providers will support the preparation of the test plan and participate in the hot-staging and public event.
