High-bandwidth QoS sensitive services such as large scale video surveillance generally depend on provisioned capacity delivered by circuit-switched technology such as SONET/SDH. Yet development in layer 2 protocol sets and manageability extensions to Ethernet standards propose layer 2 packet switching technology as a viable, cheaper alternative to SONET/SDH. Layer 2 switched networks traditionally offer more complex topologies; in this paper we explain general QoS issues with layer 2 switching and show the impact of topology choice on service performance.
