MONTREAL, July 10, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The MEF today announces that
FIBRENOIRE, a telecommunications company specializing exclusively in
fiber optic connectivity services for businesses in Quebec and Ontario,
has become the first Canadian Telecoms Provider to achieve CE 2.0
CE 2.0 certification ensures FIBRENOIRE'S customers that its network is
compliant with the industry's highest standards. "We believe that
standardization of Carrier Ethernet Services will accelerate demand
both at the retail and wholesale level as more customers will be
looking into certified Carrier Ethernet networks in the future," said
Jean-François Lévesque, CTO of FIBRENOIRE.
FIBRENOIRE joins 8 other carriers, such as Comcast, TW Telecom and
Telecom Italia that have obtained MEF CE 2.0 certification since May
2012, rapidly speeding up the adoption of the new standard.
"Carrier Ethernet has become the industry's biggest success story of the
past decade. A milestone was reached this year when for the first time
Carrier Ethernet services share of bandwidth exceeded the sum total of
all legacy telecoms services across the world, making it the dominant
technology in the carrier space. Last year over 1.2 billion new
Ethernet ports were shipped (400 million wired and 800 million
wireless) according to IDC, and Frost & Sullivan, Vertical Systems and
Infonetics predict a near $48 billion services market by 2015,"
concludes Nan Chen, President, MEF
