Telecommunications market has transformed from a single network provider that owns and operates the whole network to various network providers competing for the connectivity business(voice, data connectivity and triple play). Inter-operability is critical between both different access and core network providers and also between connectivity and content providers. As a result, standardization has become a key issue.
Ethernet is well standardized and easy to inter-work with core technologies. Ethernet has matured significantly over the past year and has become the dominant data-link protocol in business and households. Enhancements in OAM capabilities from ITU-T Y.1731, IEEE 802.1g and 802.1h has helped establishing Ethernet as carrier class networking services
