Well at MAE-E , FDDI ;) (We have a pending deal to move some exchange
to direct ATM OC-3/DS3, to route around the MAE)
However, passing back into the our national fabric, we tend to run
a few UBR's, and a few RT-VBR tunnels.

It becomes an Exchange Fabric in and of itself. See Ameritech VNAP,
and OneCall's IndyX
