MRV OCS and Interdata will show how Pro-Vision® simplifies MEF Ethernet services creation and activation, allows service level agreement (SLA) setting and verification and supports proactive, per-service fault management. This EMS, NMS and service management platform offers operators applications and tools to fully manage and control large-scale carrier Ethernet networks.

On February 8, 2011, Vice President of Marketing for MRV’s OCS division, Mr. Zeev Draer, will participate in an MEF panel titled “Global Interconnected: The Building Blocks: ENNI and Access Services.” Later that day, Mr. Draer will speak on a panel titled, “MPLS-TP OAM and Use Cases.”
