COURSE OVERVIEW

Carriers are in the transitioning phase from the traditional Telco 1.0 era to the Telco 2.0 era where data traffic is dominating their networks. A well-known technology to provide 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 QoS.

The Metro Ethernet Forum 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 a strong insight into Carrier Ethernet technologies, the Metro Ethernet Forum specifications for services and examine 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 2.0 (blueprint C) standards defined by MEF.
PRE-REQUISITE

Product managers, product planners, Pre-sales managers, sales engineers, engineers, technical solutions architects, business solutions engineers and managers.
