“Carrier Ethernet has become the industry’s biggest success story of the past decade. A milestone was reached last year when for the first time Carrier Ethernet services share of bandwidth exceeded the sum total of all legacy telecoms services across the world, making it the dominant technology in the carrier space”. — Nan Chen, President, MEF.
MEF Certification is a driver in the standardization of Ethernet services, which is quickly establishing dominance as the leading technology in network facilities, across the world. Ethernet is the primary technology because of its ease of use, cost effectiveness, and flexibility, and allows WANs to interoperate interconnections across a variety of services, including but not limited to cloud computing, mobile backhaul, and broadband. Effectively, MEF accreditation is highly demanded by clients and Ufinet, as a premier carrier, has obtained MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) to meet the growing requests in Latin America and Europe.
Especially as a service provider for LATAM and EMEA regions, Ufinet has a unique need to meet the demands of a global system, as networks become increasingly important to one another via peering arrangements and purchasing and leasing capacity, in the end connecting Internet users globally. MEF Certification allows for interconnection, management, and performance to be standardized and fluid as data streams across different carrier networks.
MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) is a recognition of telecommunications professionals’ knowledge and capability in understanding the specifications for Carrier Ethernet services defined by the MEF, and Ufinet’s certification indicates globally and to its own customers that the company has the capability to deliver excellence in Ethernet.
