MEF, the defining body for Carrier Ethernet, expresses a future vision referred to as the “Third Network”, where network services are agile, assured and orchestrated. In this future customers have better control through self-service, connectivity is on-demand and elastic, and business models are pay-as-you-go.
Net Insight’s Customer Provisioned Networks (CPN) solution uses Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology to provide these capabilities today. This has been proven by the company’s long-term international deployments with service providers such as The Switch. MEF CE 2.0 certification proves that operators can use this solution to build open, standards-based networks, delivering well-defined Carrier Ethernet services.
“During Super Bowl 50 we successfully delivered carrier grade Ethernet services ranging from 50Mbps to 10Gbps with assured performance to a number of major clients. These services were mission critical to the production of Super Bowl, and were delivered using Net Insight’s now MEF certified Nimbra equipment.”
Scott Beers, chairman and CEO, The Switch.
