Verizon Wins Top Honors From Metro Ethernet Forum

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon has received top Metro Ethernet Forum awards around the world for its leadership and innovation in developing and delivering Carrier Ethernet business services.  In addition to earning the Global Service Provider of the Year award for the fourth consecutive year, Verizon received two Carrier Ethernet Business Application Awards for Asia-Pacific, the Best Marketing award for the Americas and the North America Regional Service Provider award.

The 2012 MEF Carrier Ethernet Awards ceremonies were held last month in Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and New York.

This year's awards featured an enhanced business applications category, which recognizes partnerships between service providers and their clients in the delivery of Ethernet business services. Verizon's submissions featuring Aicent (mobile data services category) and Juniper Networks (manufacturing category) were the winners in the inaugural Best Carrier Ethernet Business Application Awards in Asia-Pacific.

Shawn Hakl, Verizon's vice president for products and solutions, said: "To win the Carrier Ethernet Global Service Provider of the Year award for the fourth year in a row – on top of our other global accolades – is a tremendous achievement and a testament to our continued innovation in the Ethernet space. This year, we are also pleased to have been able to showcase our capabilities through our relationships with Aicent and Juniper Networks. Our work with both companies demonstrates the breadth and depth of our capabilities in the Ethernet space, and we are particularly delighted to have received MEF awards in recognition of this."

The MEF awards recognize excellence and leadership in the development, marketing and delivery of Carrier Ethernet Services. The awards, judged by independent panels of senior industry analysts, are presented annually in North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Caribbean and Latin American regions.
