A Performance Analysis of Carrier Ethernet Schemes Based on Multiple Spanning Trees
Source: University of Girona
Due to recent advances, Ethernet is starting to move from Local area networks to carrier networks. Nevertheless as the requirements of carrier networks are more demanding, the technology needs to be enhanced. Schemes designed for improving Ethernet to match carrier requirements can be categorized in two classes. The first class improves Ethernet control components only, and the second class improves both Ethernet control and forwarding components. Related work on the first class performs comparison between proposals of the same class, thus without taking into account the second class.
