ITU expert Huub Van Helvoort will speak at the Light Reading Ethernet Europe
event in London next week. Van Helvoort will take part in a panel discussion: “Extending Connection-Oriented Ethernet End-to-End Using MPLS-TP”.
The session will focus on how operators can enhance their metro Ethernet networks and optimize them for transport by deploying an end-to-end Carrier Ethernet network that incorporates the emerging Transport Profile of MPLS (MPLS-TP) which provides interworking with IP/MPLS and packet-optical technologies. ITU recently agreed first stage approval of a key standard in the field here
MPLS-TP promises to change the economic equation and enable more affordable end-to-end MPLS deployments by helping streamline operational models and consolidate/simplify network topologies.
The session will be moderated by Stan Hubbard, Senior Analyst, Heavy Reading.
