MFTP Ethernet Provision (MEP)
To be able to provide an infrastructure for high-revenue broadband services like triple play, operators are working feverishly to deploy modern networks capable of supporting TV and video streaming. But "Pure-bred" next-generation networks with end-to-end IP infrastructure will remain the exception in the foreseeable future. Even in modern carrier networks, traditional lines will continue to play a role, and technologies like Ethernet over SDH are making it possible to build pragmatic solutions. The STM-based Multi Facility Transmission Podium (MFTP) has become the most primary technology for the transmission networks. All major equipment manufacturers have launched new functions of the MFTP, among the new functional specifications of the MFTP; the Ethernet service has the major effect on the MFTP.
