MFA Forum and EANTC Showcase MPLS

Some 15 vendors featuring more than 30 devices will demonstrate interoperability, resiliency, multicast and QoS assured MPLS network
services to support emerging triple-play and business applications at this week's MPLS World Congress in Paris, France.

The test event was organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center in Berlin, Germany (EANTC) with support from the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) and endorsed by the MFA Forum.

The showcase will highlight network services such as BGP-based VPNs, Ethernet, ATM, TDM, and multi-segment pseudowires and VPLS (multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service).

Participants, of which four are taking part for the first time, include Agilent Technologies, Alcatel, BATM Advanced Communications, Ciena Corporation, Cisco Systems, Huawei Technologies, Ixia,
Lucent Technologies, MRV Communications, Nortel, RAD Data Communications, Riverstone Networks, Spirent Communications, Tellabs and Tpack.

A white paper is available online from the MFA Forum.
