Basic components of Provider Backbone Bridge (PBB) network models were constructed: PBB interior switch, PBB edge switch—with the dynamic filling up of address tables. The modeling of PBB networks was implemented. The results of simulation reveal definite imperfections of PBB technology caused by the broad-casting and sensitivity to the ageing time of the address tables’ records, which complicates the guaranteeing of a given QoS. The preliminary comparison confirms definite advantages of E6 addressing before PBB.
