During this testing, multiservice interworking of ATM-Ethernet was verified for the first time within the context of hierarchical Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) supporting delivery of high and standard definition Video on Demand (VoD) services. In addition, real time MDI (Media Delivery Index), measurements were made for MPEG encoded video Streams carried over MPLS P2MP LSP in carrier Ethernet environment. As part of Isocore’s commitment to the integration of Ethernet services evaluation, the MPLS 2006 demonstration will showcase, for the first time, two flavors of implementing VPLS based services, one using LDP based signaling, and other using BGP based signaling.
