MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP)

MEF-CECP

Carriers are in the transitioning phase from the traditional telco era to the modern telco era where data traffic is dominating their networks. A well-known technology to provider cost efficient connectivity over data networks is Ethernet which is the interface of choice for virtually all applications and services. With Ethernet, carriers can deliver these services at lower operating costs, higher flexibility and scalability to all current and future network technologies, always ensuring Quality of Service.

The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has evolved a set of standard service definitions for the kind of Ethernet services customers now require. Service providers can deliver services between sites that appear to customers as end-to-end Ethernet. Network operators can emulate other traditional services (i.e. TDM) over the same infrastructure and deliver all services using Carrier Ethernet.

This training course is intended to provide an in-depth explanation of Carrier Ethernet technologies, the MEF specifications for services, and how these services can be delivered over different carrier core and access networks and transport platform along with other services deployed. It includes all the latest enhancements as per CE 3.0 (Blueprint E) standards defined by MEF.

The comprehensive MEF-CECP training by Telefocal Asia will help prepare candidates for the MEF-CECP examination that will be held at the end of the course. Successful candidates who have passed the exam will be certified as a MEF Carrier Ethernet Certifies Professional and recognized in the MEF Certified Professional Registry.
