MRV Communications Delivers Fully Compliant MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Platform

Stocks in this article: MRVC

MRV Communications™, Inc. (OTC QB: MRVC) (“MRV” or the “Company”), a leading provider of optical communications network infrastructure equipment and integration and managed services, today announced it is fully compliant with the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) initiative that was announced last month. MRV is among the first to fully comply with the specifications that will enable service providers to transform their metro networks for a wide range of next-generation services such as mobile backhaul to support the growing 4G and LTE networks. MRV’s OptiSwitch®, an award winning family of compact Intelligent Ethernet Demarcation and Carrier Ethernet Aggregation platforms, exceeds the Multiple Class-of-Service (Multi-CoS), network interconnect, and service OAM capabilities set forth by the MEF in the CE 2.0 initiative.

The OptiSwitch portfolio uses an integrated configuration and management system to make deployment and monitoring of CE 2.0 services simple and efficient. By utilizing the OptiSwitch operating system, a unified platform that runs throughout the portfolio, the solution is able to create the additional CE 2.0 service types, defined for E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree and E-Access. Key features of the platform not only include Multi-CoS, but Hierarchical Quality of Service (H-QoS) for dynamic bandwidth management and complex traffic switching for global Ethernet Network-to-Network services. These are a required to support the applications driving CE 2.0 on packet, circuit and cable networks. MRV’s award-winning Pro-Vision® service provisioning and network management system further enriches the OptiSwitch CE 2.0 solution by enabling service creation with zero-touch mass deployment with rapid service turn-up. Pro-Vision includes a web-based customer portal that enables the monitoring of real-time service performance and Service Level Agreement (SLA) verification based on the customer’s view.

The latest MEF initiative enables the delivery of differentiated applications over managed and interconnected global networks by combining specifications and performance metrics for the key features of Multi-CoS, service interconnect at the ENNI and multi layer service manageability. Each feature, respectively, provides the functionality to meet standardized performance objectives, expand the reach of Carrier Ethernet, and provide affordable scalability and measurability to better ensure SLAs. These powerful new CE 2.0 features are defined in MEF service attributes, implementation agreements and management specifications.
