Advances in SONET/SDH technologies have introduced novel features for improved services mapping and provisioning, enabling many new avenues for new Carrier Ethernet support. However Ethernet-over-SONET studies have mostly focused on provisioning point-to-point Ethernet private line offerings. This paper considers the more challenging case of provisioning multi-point-to-multi- point Ethernet LAN services over advanced SONET/SDH networks and presents novel strategies based upon connection group overlays. Detailed simulation results are also presented along with directions for future work.
