What does "carrier-class packet transport" mean?  I am thinking maybe its how the heavy hitters (XO, SBC, Level 3) move packets on the internet, but I am guessing.


Thanks

Hi Jimmy,


From transformation to IP-based packet transport network (PTN) has garnered industry-wide attention as the most expedient remedy. PTN is generally regarded as a connection-oriented transport network technology. Based on IP technology, it is applicable to a multi-service environment and capable of accessing, converging and transporting "TDM/ATM over Packet" and "packet-only" services.


Nevertheless, IP technology possesses certain innate drawbacks that negatively influence its position as a carrier-class service transport mechanism


The features that PTN technology requires to render it carrier-class are detailed below.


1) Highly precise network synchronization
2) End-to-End QoS guarantees

3) SDH-like OAM and network protection

4) Uniform multi-service transport and management platform

Thank you for your answer.  Ironically, I work (just started) for a comany that does backhauls in Mircrowaves (Dragaonwaves, Huawei, and a few others) so I am being exposed to alot of new technologies...and loving it
