Metro Ethernet Forum Certifies Tellabs

Feb 04, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- The Metro Ethernet Forum presented Tellabs with the Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certificate at the Americas CE Summit on Jan. 29 in San Diego.

In a release, the Company noted that the certificate marks the completion of CE 2.0 certification testing for the Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System and the Tellabs 7300 Metro Ethernet Switch series.

For service providers, CE 2.0 ushers in a new era of Ethernet services, with carrier-grade OAM (operations, administration and maintenance) support and resiliency, better interoperability at network boundaries, and more granular provisioning and management capabilities.

Joe Shilgalis, vice president of North America sales, accepted the award for Tellabs.

"As an early adopter of CE 2.0, Tellabs demonstrates market leadership in Carrier Ethernet through our broad Metro Ethernet Switch and Packet Optical Transport product portfolio," Shilgalis said. "The Tellabs 8000 Intelligent Network Manager enables service providers to provision and manage Carrier Ethernet services from the demarcation point all the way through metro and regional networks. The MEF CE 2.0 certification provides our customers with a high level of assurance in the performance of Tellabs 7100 and 7300 based Carrier Ethernet Services." Tellabs was also an earlier adopter of MEF CE 1.0, attaining certification of its packet transport product families back in 2005.

Bob Mandeville, President and Founder of test lab Iometrix, which is responsible for MEF's testing process, said, "Tellabs is part of a select group of vendors that we have put through all the paces of the most challenging series of MEF conformity tests to date. The resulting CE 2.0 certification is evidence of the company's strong and continued commitment to Carrier Ethernet standards." ((Comments on this story may be sent to newsdesk@closeupmedia.com))
