Certified interoperability between service provider networks extends Ethernet service offerings

Telco Systems said that two of its next-generation 10GE devices have achieved MEF CE 2.0 certification.

The new certifications give the company the broadest portfolio of end-to-end, CE 2.0-certified solutions, the company said.

MEF certification streamlines carrier Ethernet service interoperability among service providers. Additionally, the program helps ensure end-to-end quality of service, accelerates deployment times for new services and simplifies interconnection between carrier networks.

CE 2.0 is the MEF´s designation for its second generation of service standards and promotes new services (E-Tree, E-Access) and interfaces (ENNI) in addition to significant enhancements to previously defined services (E-Line, E-LAN).

Telco Systems delivers an industry-leading portfolio of SDN & NFV, Carrier Ethernet and MPLS-based demarcation, aggregation and edge solutions, enabling service providers to create intelligent, service-assured, CE 2.0-compliant networks for mobile backhaul, business services and cloud networking. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of BATM Advanced Communications (LSE: BVC).
