Metro Ethernet

There were two sessions Wednesday Afternoon on Metro Ethernet. The concept of vendors using Ethernet as a standard way to deliver services of various bandwidths seems to be a common theme. The challenges were well laid out in these two sessions on Security and Standards. The security presentation was a solid well laid out piece of work that was very engaging. It demonstrated the risks and laid out the steps that should be taken. While there was questions about Cisco products the presenter was reluctant to turn his presentation in to a product pitch. The second presentation was a very enthusastic discussion on the Metro Standards.

Like many of the Cisco presentations these are the same engineers develop the process and work on the committees so they CREATE the standard. However this one started to sound like my 4th year number theory class. A humourous enough fellow but just didn’t connect with me.
