Hi,

For fixing the terminology, we need as well consider the transport slicing with 3GPP/O-RAN use cases, where mobile functions requiring transport interconnections reside in telco clouds (DC location). In most based deployments scenario, DC is his connected to the transport network via two DC gateways (DCGW) with VLAN handover to transport PE. So, this is perfect match to PE-CE terminology, where DCGW is CE, and transport router facing DCGW is PE.

However, in smaller telco cloud locations, we should expect collapsed DCGW+PE design, without physical separation between DCGW (a la ‘CE’) and PE. So, kind of collapsed PE+CE node. Inside DC the underlay could be anything: VLANs, or some tunnels (e.g. VxLAN, MPLSoUDP, SRoUDP, upcoming Geneve, ….), depending on the actual DC design. Whatever is being defined as the network slices, must take in the consideration above use case as well.


Thanks,
Krzysztof

On John’s mail about IETF Network Slice Service definition (thanks for the proposed text, by the way) CE is associated to customer's endpoints, while usually the term (even for the same referenced RFC4364 in John’s mail) CE is associated to customer edge. I agree that for the definition of the slice service we need the notion of endpoint. Then, should we consider customer edge endpoint (CEE) for that?

But I think that there might be a use case for a bidirectional P2P connection, especially if [A, B] and [B, A] SLOs are identical. Also, a bidirectional P2P connection might be a useful construct when directions are sharing each other fate under the protection switchover scenario.
