Today MRV Communications announced that its OptiPacket OP-X1 and OP-X4 Carrier Ethernet (CE) metro solutions have achieved MEF CE 2.0 certification for all traffic rates up to 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). The certification progress is rigorous and, once achieved, allows network equipment manufacturers to demonstrate their compliance with globally recognized MEF CE standards – a critical step that further highlights MRV’s commitment to supporting open standards that enable service providers the optimal degree of flexibility and choice in building out their networks.
The OptiPacket OP-X1 and OP-X4 solutions offer interchangeable 10 GbE and 100 GbE line cards with common hardware and software architectures to facilitate a compelling cost of ownership and flexible deployment approaches for both wholesale and retail services across packet switched metro networks. With MEF certification now complete for the OptiPacket and OptiSwitch platforms, MRV can now provide CE 2.0 service within any network from core to access. Plus, the company’s end-to-end network portfolio enables major Tier 1 carriers and service providers to quickly deploy new, standards-based 100 GbE scalable services with guaranteed Service Level Agreement (SLA) performance.
“Increases in mobile traffic and the need to access cloud services are driving communications service providers (CSPs) to look for ways to swiftly and economically deploy scalable and efficient bandwidth solutions,” commented Adam Scheer, Senior Vice President of Product Line Management and Corporate Development for MRV. “MRV’s OptiPacket 100 GbE solution addresses that growing need for bandwidth and, with the MEF CE 2.0 certification, ensures customers will have flexibility in how they build out their networks and confidence that they can reliably meet current and future requirements.”
