1 TIGER T ogether I P, G MPLS and E thernet R econsidered Workshop Benchmarking Carrier Ethernet Technologies Krakow, Poland April Keynote Speech: Gilles Thouénon (Orange Labs), Nicolas Le Sauze (Alcatel-Lucent France/Bell Labs) Dimitri Papadimitriou (Alcatel-Lucent Bell NV)

2 TIGER 2 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 Towards a Packet Transport Network SDH and its optical layer is the most widespread transport technology  TDM, circuit based Carriers extended "smoothly" their circuit networks with packet transport capabilities  802.3, ESCON, FC… interfaces for link connection  SDH next gen for packet services to circuit network adaptation  bridges features for any-to-any connections Carriers have a large panel of transport solutions  current solutions : IP/MPLS, bridged Ethernet  new trend : provide tunneling… …with PBB-TE, PVT, T-MPLS…  Connection Oriented wave to " carry " Carrier Ethernet services  Similarly to circuit (SDH) and packet (MPLS) technologies

3 TIGER 3 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 Introducing "Carrier Ethernet" Terminology invented by the MEF to qualify Ethernet Services  E-Line (P2P EVC between 2 UNIs)  E-LAN (MP2MP EVC between >2 UNIs)  E-tree (P2MP EVC between root and spoke UNIs) These services can be delivered over different types of networks (a.k.a "Transport network")  Native Ethernet based (802.1, 802.3)  Existing Packet transport networks (IP/MPLS)  Existing TDM transport networks (SDH-NG, OTN) Misuse of language of "Carrier Ethernet" that drifted towards marketing connotations  People use to also include all technologies used to support Carrier Ethernet services Carrier Ethernet certification program performed by Iometrix

5 TIGER 5 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 Ethernet the granddaddy technology Ethernet LAN Simplicity  Plug&Play  bitrate flexibility Cost LAN multipoint connectivity Data Plane  vulnerability Control Plane  lack of performance  complexity to tune it Carrier Ethernet Leverage all advantages to make Ethernet a real service layer Solve some issues  scalability  security  OA&M Control Plane  lack of performance  complexity to tune it Transport Ethernet Solve remaining shortcomings to make Ethernet a real transport layer Bring Ethernet "Tunnels" Bring Management-based Traffic Engineering Too much heterogeneous solutions  interworking issues

6 TIGER 6 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 Fairly balance consortium 1 major operator 3 major equipment vendors 2 SMEs involved in ICT business 2 research institutes 2 universities Orange – FT group TIGER Consortium: Who are we?

7 TIGER 7 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008  Propose solutions for a better coordination between IP and Ethernet technologies to address the Metro Ethernet growing market  Assess the benefits of the proposed solutions through Evaluation & Benchmarking studies with regard to existing technologies on the market TIGER Project Objectives

8 TIGER 8 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 TIGER Challenges Large number of proposals of Carrier Grade metro solutions on the market & in various standard bodies! Two major groups: Ethernet centric or IP/MPLS centric solutions PW/MPLS PBB MPLS Transport Operators  Why do I need to change the legacy ?  Which one is the most adapted for my services?  How do i migrate towards the TIGER technology? Operators  Why do I need to change the legacy ?  Which one is the most adapted for my services?  How do i migrate towards the TIGER technology? Vendors  What should I develop?  What will be my differentiators ? Vendors  What should I develop?  What will be my differentiators ? PBB-TE PVT/VLAN-XC

9 TIGER 9 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 Goals of the Workshop Bring together Experts of the different Carrier Ethernet services and transport technologies  Ethernet-centric: SPB, GELS, PBB-TE, etc.  MPLS-centric: PW/MPLS, MPLS transport Starting from  Discuss various alternatives and confront them functionally  Provide performance benchmarking results obtained for these technologies Open the floor for Scientific & Technical debate

10 TIGER 10 | Carrier Grade Ethernet Workshop, keynote speech, Krakow, April 30th 2008 Structure of the Workshop Two tracks each divided into two sessions Track 1: functional benchmarking Two morning sessions (MI and MII) dedicated to functional benchmarking results per technology; Track 2: performance benchmarking The two afternoon sessions (Scientific and Technical Results AI and AII) dedicated to the performance benchmarking results per technology - All sessions are organized 15/20 minutes presentation followed by 15 minutes of topical discussion - After afternoon sessions, an open Scientific and Technical Debate (1 hour) will confront the scientific & technical results obtained by the workshop participants
