Converge ICT reinforces Ethernet capabilities

Converge ICT (CICT) Solutions, the provider of pure fiber Internet solutions in the Philippines, has announced it has further strengthened its Carrier Ethernet services capabilities with successful completion of MEF CE 2.0 Certification, the company said.

The certification augments the company´s core solutions competencies.

The rigorous CE 2.0 testing included certification of E-Line EPL/EVPL, E-Access EPL/EVPL, and E-LAN/EP-LAN service configurations, and was performed across CICT´s deployed metro core and regional transport infrastructure leveraging the Coriant® 7090 Packet Transport Platform and Coriant Transcendâ„¢ Chorus network management solution.

Currently in the midst of a massive nationwide fiber network rollout, CICT has taken a holistic approach to the company´s expansion efforts. As a result, CICT´s strategy includes ensuring that its portfolio of product offerings is fully reinforced to better serve its target markets and customers. That is the primary reason behind its engagement with industry-leading packet optical transport provider Coriant, who provided support during the certification process.

The MEF CE 2.0 Services Certification Program enables service providers to certify that their connectivity services comply with the relevant MEF specifications. The program has been a driving force behind the successful deployment of Carrier Ethernet services worldwide. The Converge CE 2.0 services certification testing was administered by MEF´s approved third-party testing entity Iometrix, and was conducted in July.
