Internet Enhanced Service (IES) provides routing capability on top of MPLS network. In addition, it is widely used for multicast routing in order to take advantage of LSP path protection.

The Adapter now instantiates IES-IES services that have at least one SDP binding in the MPLS topology. These services are modeled as follows:

  • IES SDP binding is modeled as ForwarderEndpoint. A PseudoWire is created between each pair of bindings.

  • IES site is modeled as Forwarder.

  • IES service is modeled as VPN.

    In addition, the Adapter correlates IES alarms with relevant notifications in the MPLS Manager.
