Extreme XOS supports Metro Ethernet E-Line (Point-to-Point EVC) and E-LAN (Multipoint-to-Mulipoint EVC). ?
I have not found information about this in the Concepts_Guide.
We are also investigating the possibility of providing MEF services to our customers using Extreme Networks equipment. According to https://www.metroethernetforum.org/certification/equipment-certification-registry
The following Extreme Networks equipment:
- Summit X460-G2 (Summit X460-G2-24p-10GE4)
- Summit X670-G2 (Summit X670-G2-48X-4q)
- Summit X670-G2 (Summit X670-G2-72x)
- (Extreme claim the Summit X770 as MEF9 and MEF14 certified on the Data Sheet)
Supports the following MEF 2.0 services:
- E-Line (EPL/EVP)
- E-LAN (EP-LAN/EVP-LAN)
Is there any configuration details from the certification tests that Extreme Networks can make openly available?
One would assume that to provide a standard set of services (outlined by the MEF) there would be a standard way of configuring XOS...consequently saving XOS users a bunch of pain and having to re-invent the wheel!
If that doesn't get your questions answered please lets us know more specific questions on what you need answered.
Thanks for replying,
I understand the option to use either VPLS or VMAN to deliver these services.
Specifically, I'm after XOS Configurations and Policy Files used by Extreme Networks to gain MEF certification for their hardware devices.
Looking at the MEF documentation, there a very specific settings around CoS, Traffic Management and OAM that need to occur to be compliant which are not covered in great detail by the XOS Concepts Guide.
If provided, these configs would provide me a working "base-plate" to work from and built out the services. Additionally, this would be a huge time and money saver in terms of development costs.
Paul, would you be able to reach out to your colleagues that were involved in MEF certification process?
