The reason I ask is that I am thinking of the following.
If I have one PVC from London to NY, both ends set to a CIR of 256k.
Then I order a second PVC from Manchester to the same site in NY.
The PVC should be end-to-end, ie, 2 x 256k PVC, but say I get the choice from the provider to not upgrade the NY PVC into their FR clould.
So potntially have 512 from the UK hitting (at some stage on ther FR network) an aggreagtion point that is not the last hop FR switch in the U.S. on the carrier clould.
This means that if the aggregation point is not the last hop FR switch there could be a potential bottleneck and potential congestion on the U.S portion of the PVCs from the start of the data aggregation point to the last hop switch and thus contention on the access portion of my circuit inbound on the U.S side.
Can and does this happen and this is why then and only then, it would make sense for an NNI FR connection to be able to set DE as you point out above. Do servie providers offer this type of service with these caveats?
Also, I assume for this to work, each node in the FR network needs to know about each customers CIR in relation to a PVC transiting the NNI switches, as to be able to compare CIR to actual TPUT, and does this not give more overhead on the carriers network as potentially each customers CIR for a PVC traversing the switch would have to be known or configured on the switch.
