What are the Juniper Networks solutions for Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) 6.1 Ethernet services definitions?
The following are the Juniper Networks solutions for Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) 6.1 Ethernet services definitions:
- Ethernet private line (EPL) and Ethernet virtual private line (EVPL) are emulated by Juniper Networks Layer 2 circuit and Layer 2 VPN configurations.
- Ethernet LAN (E-LAN) is emulated by any Juniper Networks VPLS configuration solution.
- Ethernet lines (E-Line) service is emulated by using Juniper Networks Layer 2 circuit service configuration. The encapsulation type for the E-Line can be full Ethernet or only VLAN.
- Ethernet trees (E-Tree) service can be built using point-to-multipoint, or a more sophisticated implementation can be built using hub-and-spoke communities with BGP VPLS.
