The Carrier Ethernet industry continues to experience significant growth year over year, due to its inherent ability to deliver substantial economic and implementation benefits to service providers and end-users. The Metro Ethernet Forum’s (MEF) goal of achieving a global footprint of Ethernet services availability is being attained. Service providers are rushing to implement standards-based interconnects under the guidance of the MEF’s Global Interconnect Program, with the result being increased services availability and faster service turn-up times.
The Carrier Ethernet World Congress has also emerged as the only logical solution to the immediate and growing need to deal with the increasing traffic in the backhaul networks of mobile operators. MEF is supporting the transition from legacy to Carrier Ethernet based solutions with important technical and educational programs. The MEF itself continues to expand its global footprint with over 170 member companies and over 110 companies with MEF Carrier Ethernet certified products or services. Carrier Ethernet World Congress is clearly the event where participants obtain the most current information relating to Carrier Ethernet global deployments and developments. If you are a stakeholder in this growing industry, you can’t afford to miss CEWC!
