IS-2008-106: Ethernet Services: WAN options mature

Verizon has compiled a collection of papers that advocates Ethernet for applications outside of local area networks (LANs).

Ethernet is being proposed to replace or to complement MLPS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) for the wide area networks. The net benefits are lower costs to manage and deploy LANs and WANs.
