The MEF has announced that PCCW Global has achieved an industry milestone as the world’s first MEF 100G CE 2.0 certified service provider.

PCCW Global has received the certification for e-line, e-lan and e-access services. The previous upper limit for MEF CE 2.0 services certification was 10G per second. The new service is based on network equipment supplied by Huawei.

“The MEF congratulates PCCW Global and Huawei on their collaborative, pioneering work to drive industry innovation with 100G CE 2.0 services certification,” said Nan Chen, MEF’s president.

PCCW Global’s worldwide network passed rigorous testing procedures covering a full set of 100G service attributes, including performance and bandwidth profiles. Compliance testing and certification was performed by Iometrix, the official test lab of the MEF. PCCW’s CEO, Marc Halbfinger, said the certification demonstrated its ability to meet the high performance, reliability and scalability standards required by its customers.

Huawei’s president of transmission network product line, Jeffrey Gao, said: “The introduction of the 100G large-volume network is an important milestone for boosting network efficiency.”
