Yo Mama is soooo fat that.....

oh yeah????


Well, you Mama is so ugly that.....

I love it.

Hey Yankee.....stop wasting your time interviewing the vendors!!!! Then again, everyone knows that you offer the best PR that money can buy so if you didn't rely on the vendors for your information then you'd be out of business!!!!

AMEN!!!

Or maybe at least create a PR section of the report and you can put Yankee and RHK in there.

Here's a Tag Line:

re: Report Stirs Ethernet vs Sonet Debate
To Lightreading

please keep Yankee off this sight

This is suppossedly to be for intelligent forward thinking people...

It isn't about Ethernet V Sonet but the integration of Ethernet into the Broadband IP strategy of existing networks.

A lot of buzz words start happening like provisioning, mpls etc etc and if i was anymore specific the boys at Yanks would publish it

But then since I wasn't paying them for writing it maybe not.....

re: Report Stirs Ethernet vs Sonet Debate
I would like to share a few critical considerations before adopting the metro-ethernet
standard.

If the metro-ethernet is base on today' s pure ethernet implementation, there is no way it can
achieve that kind of protection and restoration scheme offered by SONET. This scheme is so important to justify carrier-class service which
primary dedicated to a voice-carrier network.

A maximum tolerence of 50 ms for any restoration
scheme will ultimately inhibit the adoption of ethernet.

It is impossible for ethernet to solve voice
carrier-class service requirement unless IEEE
802.3 working group modify ethernet so much to look like sonet. (With all the in-band signaling)
Prove me wrong.Anyone?

re: Report Stirs Ethernet vs Sonet Debate
It may look and act like SONET in some ways but it will be called Ethernet. People have decided it's easier to get there from the Ethernet base camp. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

re: Report Stirs Ethernet vs Sonet Debate
Of course itGs going to take some time G it requires what is commonly referred to as business case. You see not that long ago you needed to build a business case in order for things to move ahead, then along came a big party where everybody said the f* with business cases I gonna get my piece before somebody else does.

Are we all so focused on instant billions that we canGt be a bit more patient? Geez!

The SONET v Ethernet debate is over already, weGre just waiting for the business case to mature. Last year you didnGt need a business case to convince somebody to buy into it, this year you do.

Why do you want to solve resiliency at layer 2?
Ethernet over Sonet, Ethernet over Lambda, or IEEE 802.17,... all of them offer sub-50 ms resiliency.

Just don't use Spanning Tree (not even its grand-son) and your problem is solved. :-)

re: Report Stirs Ethernet vs Sonet Debate
MMA asked the question;

What was the reason for the 50 ms restoration switching time requirement? Does anyone recall?

50ms restoration is key to support legacy TDM/voice networks. This kept calls (hundreds to thousands of them) from dropping and causing the Class 4/5 switch to melt down. There are probably a couple of other reasons, but maintaining calls (or Tandem Links) was the main reason.

This discussion thread is very interesting. Ethernet vs. SONET. From all of my reading the answer to this question seems to be RPR.

Any thoughts on this?

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial and often most challenging is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company Tribold from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
