802.1ah - Provider Backbone Bridges

The scope of this standard is to define an architecture and bridge protocols compatible and interoperable with Provider Bridged Network protocols and equipment allowing interconnection of multiple Provider Bridged Networks, to allow scaling to at least 220 Service VLANs, and to support management including SNMP.

This standard will complete the future work identified by P802.1ad, by providing a specific means for interconnecting Provider Bridged Networks. It will enable a Service Provider to scale the number of Service VLANs in a Provider Network by interconnecting the Service Virtual LANs, and provide for interoperability and consistent standards based management.

This project is intended to facilitate the scaling of Provider Bridged P802.1ad networks using existing Bridged and Virtual Bridged Local Area Network (VLAN) technologies. Despite user demand and initial deployment of LAN-based backbones for connecting P802.1ad networks, there is currently no interoperability between different vendors, nor a coherent management framework for different techniques. Most major carriers, who will be the users of this standard, are currently deploying LAN-based service networks that need to be scaled to meet the demands both of transition from existing leased line service and expansion of multipoint services.
