Can someone tell me how EVC (ethernet virtual circuits) get mapped in regards to a metro ethernet circuit.
For example: if I buy a point to point circuit to connect a small remote site to my hub site, thee ISP will pull a circuit from the remote site to their cloud..then they would pull a circuit from the hub site to their cloud. How are they mapping the circuit together?

thank you. I think the ISPs assign a VLAN and map EVCs to each VLAN.

correction. VLAN ID to EVC is a 1 to 1 mapping, I believe.
