Service providers are experiencing compounding challenges from an exponential increase in demand for communications and information exchange along with the rising expectations of content providers and end users for the highest quality of service/experience. As IP-based traffic increases, service providers must consider a new packet transport technology that is capable of converging networks and enabling more efficient Operation, administration and Management (OAM) in line with the well-known operational model that carriers and service providers expect from their transport network, such as high scalability and resilience, multiservice capabilities and deterministic performance for ensuring strong Service Level Agreement (SLA) assurance for any type of transported service.
