GTS successfully completes MEF certifications

22 August 2011 |


GTS Central Europe has announced its successful completion of the Metro Ethernet Forum’s (MEF) certifications for Ethernet services.

The European telco claims that it is the first central and eastern operator to successfully complete the MEF 9 and MEF 14 certifications.

GTS’s CTO Ignacio Irurita explained that the rapidly growing demand for applications is driving the need for higher bandwidths which has led to more businesses and wholesale customers selecting Ethernet as a connectivity solution. “It is a key component in our strategy to provide customers with unparalleled services in the CEE region,” he said.

GTS joined the MEF in May this year with the aim to help promote carrier Ethernet for business and wholesale customers.

Nan Chen, MEF president said: “As the first central eastern European based provider to be certified to MEF 9 and 14, GTS joins the growing number of global service providers who are committed to delivering MEF certified Carrier Ethernet services to their enterprise and wholesale clients.”

GTS’s Ethernet products include GTS Ethernet Line, GTS Ethernet VPN, GTS Ethernet Media Line and GTS Ethernet NNI.
