Nortel's Ethernet Plans

In a press release today, Nortel discussed its Ethernet plans for metro networks, including its efforts for standardization of its Provider Backbone Transport (PBT) technology. A first-to-market version of PBT is already available in the Nortel Metro Ethernet Routing Switch (MERS) 8600, with development also underway to integrate the technology into the Nortel Optical Multiservice Edge (OME) 6500 and other Ethernet-ready platforms. A detailed report is available here.
