The Role of 10-Gigabit Ethernet in Metro Area Networks
This technical white paper attempts to answer basic questions about 10-Gigabit Ethernet, including: How will 10GbE compare to the existing versions of Ethernet? What functions, features, and frame structure will apply? What services can be expected from service providers? The deeper questions are: Where will 10GbE be deployed? How will 10GbE work with MPLS, RPR, and other new technologies?
