Chapter 7. Configuring Metro Ethernet
This chapter covers configuring Ethernet over SONET circuits.
This chapter explains how to configure the Cisco ONS 15454 and ONS 15327 optical platforms to support metro Ethernet cards and applications. To complete this chapter, you need to be familiar with the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) software, which was introduced in Chapter 5, “Configuring ONS 15454 and ONS 15327.”
Configuring Metro Ethernet Circuits
The configuration of metro Ethernet circuits assumes that a SONET unidirectional path switched ring (UPSR) has already been built. It is important to provision metro Ethernet circuits only over a UPSR ring if using Multicard EtherSwitch group mode on the E-series cards. Figure 7-1 shows a shared packet ...
