System und Verfahren zur Anzeige der Klassifizierung eines Kommunikationsflusses

System and method for indicating classification of a communications flow

Système et procédé d'indication de la classification d'un flux de communication

Abstract

System and method for providing a layer 2 switch (118) in the access network that switches based upon one or more carrier tags identifying customer traffic. Customer traffic conforming to any variety of different layer 1 or layer 2 protocols may be encapsulated and identified according to carrier tag values. The layer 2 switch (118) may determine how to handle the traffic by interpreting and manipulating the carrier tag values. The layer 2 switch may be capable of switching TDM input traffic to either TDM or packet output traffic, and switching packetized input traffic to either TDM or packet output traffic. Handling classification values may also be processed by the layer 2 switch to affect prioritization of handling of encapsulated traffic.
