    The paper proposes a design for traffic engineering to provide Ethernet services using an extended access network. Ethernet has remained the dominant technology for Local Area and Enterprise Networks, the use of Ethernet in metro networks has seen significant interest of late to provide for end to end Ethernet services to the user. The Broadband Photonic (BBP) access network is viewed as a quasi independent stack of EPONs in which geographically spread customer-VLANs (C-VLANs) can be implemented. The use of such a network for providing metro Ethernet like services in addition to traditional access services is presented.
