  1. Thanks Richie,

    I haven’t seen it on a real network before and I doubt that it’s still used a lot. A lot of service providers use MPLS which can also transport L2 if you want.


  2. Hi Srini,

    I used routers just to have some “customer” device that could do tagging for me in this example. In a real network, you would use customer switches instead.

    The tag on the left side is the tag from the ISP, I should probably have used the same color for the customer tag.


  3. How can we encrypt traffics passing through Metro Ethernet?

  4. Hi Laz,
    You are very welcome. Thank you too!

  5. You are right Adrian, thanks for notifying us. I just fixed it.
