Video: The Demarcation Calculation – Matching NIDs to Tiered Services

Webinar: The Demarcation Calculation

Ethernet services can vary from direct internet access to Carrier Ethernet 2.0 business services with performance and uptime guarantees. In addition, there are 8 different types of Carrier Ethernet services as defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum.

This educational video reviews the different Network Interface Devices available, and how the features and costs align with the different types of Ethernet services. A variety of network deployments are presented with demarcation application examples that show how Service Providers can deploy NIDs that match the appropriate service tier to save equipment costs and deliver profitable services.

Video: What is Carrier Ethernet 2.0 – and why should you care?


The MEF defines Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 as having three service features: multiple classes of service (multi-CoS), manageability, and interconnect. These three features reflect major new capabilities in Ethernet services and the addition of new service types.
This on-demand webinar is presented by Steve Mood, Omnitron’s Chief Technology Officer who oversees development of Omnitron’s Carrier Ethernet service demarcation solutions. Steve is a member of the MEF Technical Committee, and editor of several MEF technical specifications, including Standardized Management Service OAM MIBs.
  • The key differences between CE 1.0 and CE 2.0
  • The applications and opportunities with the new CE 2.0 Service Types
  • How to leverage CE 2.0 Multi-CoS to optimize bandwidth resources and deliver application-oriented SLAs for Mobile Backhaul and Cloud services
  • How CE 2.0 Management features enable global standardized management and simplify EMS integration
  • How CE 2.0 Interconnect and the new MEF 33 E-Access service streamline wholesale service deployments and increase revenues
