My company has decided to buy a Metro Ethernet Network leased line between two sites,I certainly have no idea how the service provider sell their services could any one send me some good link where I can find how they provide their services,like Layre2/3, QoS Priority, SLA, etc specially in Europe.

I have read the MEF specification but missing the point where this GREEN and Yellow traffic is marked is it just for the router/switch or marked on service frame header ?

Since I have just started the investigation, any idea would greatly help me to focus on the right track.

Thanks in Advance.

Many enterprises will favor Metro Ethernet services because of their long experience with Ethernet technology in corporate LANs. In addition to offering the enterprise a cost-effective interface and bandwidth scalable to 10 Gbps, Metro Ethernet services enable data center interconnection even when these facilities are well outside metro or regional boundaries because a Fibre Channel signal can be transported through IP (Fibre Channel over IP [FCIP]).

Here is the good link for Metro Ethernet.
