Performance Analysis of Metro Ethernet Network (MEN) Services Over Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Services for Enterprise
Metro Ethernet Networks (MENs) technology has provided economic sustainability to small and big enterprises. Today, individual and organizations rely on ICT to perform daily operations. The costs of using these services determine the accessibility of the users. MEN is flexible to use compare with other switch network like ATM. In this paper, features of MEN technology are explored to determine its potentials in terms of flexible services' delivery to the customers. Also, bandwidth consumption is minimal even when the network is being expanded. The authors modelled and simulated two factors; availability and reliability for MEN and compare these results with ATM technology.
