How do you define an optimized architecture vision that enables service providers to scale up their service capacity and speed of delivery and migrate from a non-MEF edge/aggregation network to a MEF-compliant network?
In Part 1 of this series, Problem? What Problems? we looked at the challenges facing service providers at the network’s metro edge. In this article we consider options for a potential solution, focusing on the merits of extending MPLS from the core to the edge versus building CE 2.0 on-ramps from the edge to the core. In the third segment series we will explore an optimized solution that addresses the problems.
