HGC becomes MEF member

22 December 2014 |


Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) has today revealed that it has achieved Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) membership.

A global industry alliance focussed on carrier-class Ethernet networks and services, the MEF’s mission is to develop and regulate technical specifications and certification standards.

The MEF 2.0 certification, established in 2012, has become the highest carrier Ethernet specification.

HGC is now entitled to attend MEF training courses to ensure that these technology standards are consistently improved. The Hong Kong-based company is also now able to meet the requirements of high-end enterprise and carrier customers.

In September, the MEF announced its Third Network vision initiative designed to deliver internet like agility and ubiquity with CE 2.0 like performance and security.
