ABSTRACT
In this paper, we present the Optical Networks Research Laboratory (ONRL) Gigabit Ethernet fiber-optic network test-bed. Using this testbed, we consider two cases of provisioning secure and reliable connections for geographically disperse customer-based VLANs over a publicly shared network: 1) using Stacked VLANs (SVLAN), and 2) using L2-VPNs over IP/MPLS core network. We demonstrate the steps taken to install and configure an operational survivable virtual private network (VPN) service built over the ONRL metro-testbed. Finally, we present results of experiments conducted to study the protection and restoration schemes implemented using the previously mentioned scenarios.
