□Deployment, Application and Strategic Impacts

□How to Migrate to Ethernet Services

□Summary & Conclusions

Business Demands Exceeding Capabilities of Legacy Infrastructures

    • Triple Play Convergence (VoIP, Video and Data)
    • Virtualization and Consolidation
    • Collaboration Requires Any-to-any Connectivity
    • Storage Area Networks and Backup and Recovery
  • Carriers Planning End of Life of Frame/ATM Networks
    • Desire to Leverage IP Efficiencies, Reduce Costs
  • Ethernet Compares Favorably to Layer 3 Alternatives
    • Ethernet offers all of the capabilities and performance benefits of
    • Layer 3, but at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Why Ethernet Services?

Most Cost-effective Support of Today’s Applications

slide4
Why Ethernet Services?

Ethernet is a Better Alternative than IP VPNs

  • IP VPNs
    • Low Cost, Ubiquitous Coverage, Best Effort, Point-to-point and hub and spoke
  • Layer 3 MPLS VPNs
    • Fully Meshed Connectivity with CoS/QoS; Costly transition, Complex Operation
  • Layer 2 Ethernet VPN
    • Simple Fully Meshed Connectivity with CoS/QoS and VPLS; High Performance, Low TCO

Point-to-Point

Hub and Spoke

Fully Meshed

slide5
Deployment Impacts

Ethernet Services Are Easier to Manage with Lower TCO

slide6
Application Impacts

Low Latency, Low Jitter Ethernet Ideal for Convergence

slide8
Putting it Into Practice:How to Migrate to Ethernet

□ Step 1: Evaluate Ethernet and decide to migrate away from legacy WAN

□ Step 2: Get rid of old-school WAN equipment

  • ● Layer 2 Communications will add a fully managed Ethernet switch (CPE)

Putting it Into Practice:How to Migrate to Ethernet

□Step 3: Don’t worry about the installation with a Managed VPLS network

□ Step 4: Plug your LAN switch or router directly WAN

summary conclusions
Summary & Conclusions
  • Consider Ethernet VPLS services if:
    • Want to maintain control of their own IP routing
    • Want to simplify WAN management
    • Want to reduce CapEx and OpEx
    • Need to scale bandwidth and support any-to-any connectivity
  • Tips:
    • Demand strong service level agreements
    • Look for global coverage
  • Require:
    • VPLS
    • Class of Service (CoS)
    • Bandwidth-on-demand
    • End-to-end management
