Verizon Business today walked off with an impressive (and attractive) “Best in Business—US Service Provider of the Year” award from the Metro Ethernet Forum. One of the top two awards presented by MEF at GlobalComm 2006 in Chicago, the company met specifications in four Ethernet service areas that were identified and tested by the MEF, including: E-LAN, Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Dedicated SONET Ring Ethernet. The entire suite was certified by the MEF in April this year.
Tom Roche, VP of Advanced Data and IP Services for Verizon Business accepted on behalf of the company. “We’re very proud of this award. The MEF has helped the adoption of Ethernet services since it ensures that carriers meet a common set of criteria.”
So, kudos to Verizon Business for winning and to the MEF for the impressive support it delivers to the industry.
