Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityCarrier EthernetService forGeneralAvailabilityWholesale E-Line services allow the Wholesale customer toconnect two or more UNI/NNI circuits through the FairPointVantagePoint network using point-to-point Ethernet VirtualConnections (EVCs) to establish connectivity. E-Line can bebetween two UNI/NNIs at different speeds and multiplexing mayoccur at one, both, or neither UNI or NNI locations.Two types of E-Line service are available:– Ethernet Private Line (EPL)– Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)Ethernet Private Line (EPL)Ethernet Private Lines (EPL) –With dedicated UNIs for point-to-pointconnections and a single EVC per UNI pair. EPL service does notsupport service multiplexing.Notice in this picture there are (4) UNI Circuits and a single EVCconnecting each set of UNIs.C a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.3

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityEthernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) – Uses a service multiplexedUNI or NNI that allows a single UNI/NNI connection to supportmultiple EVC connections. This is a point-to-multi-pointarrangement utilizing a MultiPort connection.The main difference between the EPL and EVPL configurations isthat the EPL solution requires multiple UNI ports (1 per EPL) at anetwork location, and an EVPL solution may be implemented overa single service-multiplexed UNI port at the same location.i.4C a r r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c e

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityProductDescriptionComponents of E-LineE-Line consists of a Port and Access Line. There are two types ofthe Physical Component: User to Network Interface (UNI)– The UNI Port with Access Line Connection consistsof a dedicated fiber pair that provides a link from thecustomer designated premises to one of the CarrierEthernet nodes/switches and the equivalent portinterface connection. No access mileage charge willapply within the NNE territory. Network Node Interface (E-NNI)– The E-NNI Port with Access Line Connectionprovides the interface connection from FairPoint‟sVantage-Point network and the Service Provider‟sdesignated network. E-NNI Port and Access willcarry no mileage charge.Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVC)Ethernet Virtual connections are logical / virtual connections thatestablish a communications path for customer traffic between twoor more Ethernet ports. All EVCs are point-to-point and are associated with exactlytwo ports (UNI or NNI) Must be defined as Intra-MESA or Inter-MESA EPL will have a single EVC EVPL will have multiple associated EVCsC a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.5

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityService AvailabilityWholesale E-Line service is available throughout most of thenorthern New England (NNE) serving area exchanges. Serviceavailability within a Metro Area is subject to the availability ofaccess facilities.Carrier Ethernet Service is NOT offered in Serving Wire Centers(SWC) that are not equipped with CES Ethernet equipment.FairPoint will not backhaul to another CES capable SWC.E-line Service is offered: Between two or more locations in a defined FairPointMESA From one or more locations in a FairPoint MESA to anestablished Service Provider Interconnection within thatMetro Area From one or more locations in a defined FairPoint MESAand established Service Provider Hub connection that isoutside that designated Ethernet Metro AreaMetro Ethernet Service AreasA Metro Ethernet Service Area (MESA) is a grouping ofexchanges whereby E-Line service may be provided betweenlocations in the same service area or between locations indifferent service areas.Intra-Mesa is a grouping of exchanges whereby E-Line Service maybe provided between locations in the same service area at acommon rate.Inter-Mesa Connectivity is between locations in different MESAs andis subject to higher inter-MESA EVC charges.Hub Location is a location that can connect to any location in theME, NH, VT regions.i.6C a r r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c e

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityPort SpeedsMESA-NNI and Hub-NNI connection speeds include: 100 Mbps 1 Gbps 10 Gbps.Wholesale E-Line service requires a designated Port hand-off ateach end-point. The Ethernet Port is the primary customerinterface / demarcation point connecting a customer to FairPoint‟sEthernet Network. In conjunction with a UNI-Port locationFairPoint will place a NID (Network Interface Device) at thatpremise. This equipment belongs to FairPoint and is used for thedelivery of Ethernet service. This NID also serves as a key pointof demarcation. .The following are the available HUB locations:Hub Interconnect LocationsBangor, MEPortland, MEManchester, NHConcord, NHWhite River JunctionBurlington, VTBoston, MAAlbany, NYC a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.7

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityRate Adjusted Port SpeedsAs mentioned before, Rate Adjustable speeds are available forthe UNI circuits. The Rate-Adjustable speed is indicated by theNC code. The NCI indicates electrical or optical and alsocollocation connection or not.The rate adjusted NC codes allows for upgrades to the UNIwithout changing the Circuit ID as long as you stay within theBase range.For an example using the chart below the circuit can be upgradedfrom 100Base-TX 20M Port Speed to a 100M Port Speed and theCircuit ID will remain the same. Same for the 1000Base-T if thecurrent Port Speed was 50M and it was upgraded to 150M theCircuit ID will remain the same.C a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.27

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityConversions and UpgradesWhen a customer requests an upgrade in the UNI/NNI access linespeed at an existing address within the same adjustable rate, thiscan be done on a Change order.A Change order is allowed if no equipment change is required.Equipment change will require a Disconnect and New Order.Interval for an upgrade is 5 business days.i.28C a r r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c e

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityEVC UpgradesIf the customer is changing their CoS and upgrading fromStandard to Expedite, Priority or Critical, both a UNI and an EVCorder is required as a “D” and “N” order.If the customer is downgrading the CoS from a higher to thestandard, both a UNI and an EVC order is required.If the customer is changing their CoS from Expedite to Priority orCritical, or vice versa, only an EVC order is required and can bedone on a Change order.This chart describes the change and the order type required:CoS FromCoS ToOrder TypeStandard StandardUNI & EVC –if equipment can’t support ACT-D&NACT C on the UNI can besubmitted and if it is determined itcan’t be done by ACT C, then theorder would be Jeopd, and aclarification sent to the customerthat ACT D&N is required to changethe equipment.Standard StandardUNI & EVC Equipment can support- itACT-C StandardStandardUNI & EVC on ACT-C Standard StandardEVC ONLY on ACT-CAny changes to the UNI/NNI circuit requires an ACT C anda D and N Activity on the EVC form.An upgrade of the BDW on the EVC Circuit is an ACT of“C” if no change to the equipment; a D&N if change to theequipment.Change of CoS on the EVC is a case by case basis. AnACT- C if no change to the equipment, a D&N if change tothe equipment.C a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.29

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityMoves of Access LineOutside MoveWhen a Customer requests a move of the CES access line to adifferent address and/or different building (Outside Move), themove or relocation will be treated as a termination of the existingService and the establishment of a new Service for the applicationof all charges.New minimum period and/or Service Discount Plan requirementswill be established for the new services.Inside MoveWhen a Customer requests a move of the CES access line to anew location within the same address and/or same building(Inside Move), this can be done on a change order.There will be no changes to the term commitment period on aninside move.i.30C a r r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c e

The physical circuit has to be in a “Confirmed”status before the EVC order can be placed.EVC must be ordered separately from the UNIUse the same PNUM and DDD on the EVC order as theUNIIf the customer is changing their CoS and upgrading fromStandard to Expedite, Priority or Critical, both a UNI and anEVC order is required. If the customer is changing theirCoS from Expedite to Priority or Critical, or vice versa, onlyan EVC order is required.The 20 day interval includes the Port and Access Line andthe EVC. The EVC orders are submitted after the FOC forthe UNI/NNI circuit is received. If the EVC is not receivedwithin 5 days post FOC, the order will be cancelled andcancellation charges will apply.Bandwidth Restrictions (Over Prescription)Multiple Virtual connections on UNI Circuits are allowed (EVPL),but the EVC bandwidth cannot exceed the bandwidth of thelowest physical circuit. For an example, if the UNI circuit‟s100Mbps and there are two existing virtual circuits with 50Mbpseach, Fairpoint will not allow another virtual circuit on theseconnections.C a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.37

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityClass of Service (CoS)FairPoint Enhanced offers four Levels of Class of Service.Standard Class of Service (SPEC VPEVCBE)Standard CoS is defined by the transport priority levels (p-bit)setting of 1. Standard CoS is the base-line transport service thatis good for most data applications – especially those such asinternet access, e-mail and other delay insensitive traffic.Expedite Class of Service (SPEC VPEVCEX)Expedite CoS is defined by the transport priority levels (p-bit)setting of 2. Expedite CoS is a slightly higher CoS than StandardCoS and has associated Quality of Service (QoS) metrics forpacket-delivery and latency and is more applicable forapplications that may be more sensitive to latency.Priority Class of Service (SPEC VPEVCPR)Priority CoS is defined by the transport priority levels (p-bit)setting of 3. Priority is the next higher CoS level and has higherQoS target metrics than Expedite and Standard and has a metricfor jitter. This CoS is can be used for packetized voice and videoas well as other applications that are delay sensitive.Critical Class of Service (SPEC VPEVCCR)Critical CoS is defined by the transport priority levels (p-bit) settingof 4. Critical CoS is the highest CoS offered with FairPoint CESand should be used with the highest of business critical trafficsuch as real-time voice/video traffic and circuit emulation traffic.i.38C a r r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c e

Carrier Ethernet Service E-Line for General AvailabilityEVC Tagging OptionsThese tags are used to manage the routing and priority of packetsas they flow through the FairPoint CES network and to therespective customer CPE. VLAN Tagging is used to implementClass of Service Transport levels, VLAN stacking or aggregation,and VLAN [re-]mapping.If a port has multiple EVCs associated with that port, VLAN (CTag) tagging (by the customer) is required in order for FairPoint toplace the frame on the appropriate EVC. A Port connection withonly 1 EVC associated with it, will not have that requirement, butmay still need to accept tagged frames from the customer for theCoS or routing management of the frame through their portion ofthe Ethernet network.NC code for an EVC is VLP-.NCI 02VLN.A2 is for EPL UNI circuit onlyOn an EVC the CE-VLAN (C-TAG) field will identify if thecircuit requires taggingThe CE-VLAN field is required on the NNI end of theEVC since there are multiple EVCs connecting to the HUB.The CE-VLAN field is not required on the UNI end of theEVC.The SE-VLAN (S-Tag) field should not be populatedP BIT and COS is required.C a r i e r E t h e r n e t S e r vi c ei.39
