Thanks Med and Joel for the answers.

Noting what you said, and assuming that we are covering not only IP/MPLS
technologies, probably we need to associate the same idea of CE and PE to
technologies where those roles are not commonly associated, such as OTN,
DWDM or wireless / microwave, since all of them can be potential targets of
the IETF Network Slicing realization. Then, if we follow this same
rationale and finally the WG decides to go in this direction, I guess we
need to span the CE and PE conception also to those, maybe explaining this
in the definitions draft. Am I right?

Med, when I was referring to IETF Network Slice of technology X or Y I was
thinking on the realization. So my point here is that in case you have an
IETF Network Slice let's say realized as IP/MPLS, and another one let's say
realized on OTN or DWDM, where the IP/MPLS slice is supported by the
OTN/DWDM slice, can we consider that the CE is IP/MPLS and the PE is
OTN/DWDM? It sounds strange to me.

Best regards

Luis
