Italy has seen significant growth in Carrier Ethernet Services in recent years, with some analysts* predicting a $1.1bn market for the Enterprise Market alone in the country by 2018, up from $0.6bn in 2010. Italy is the 4th largest Carrier Ethernet market in Europe by revenue
The MEF announces that Telecom Italia has become the first European Service Provide to achieve CE 2.0 certification.
“The MEF views the Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification program as a very important chapter in the evolution of standardised Carrier Ethernet services. I believe it will open up new services and markets for Telecom Italia,” said Nan Chen, President of the MEF, at the organization’s Quarterly Meeting in Frankfurt as he congratulated Mario Bianchetti, Senior Program Manager and Daniele Accetta, Primary Technical Contact.
“CE 2.0 is a very significant milestone for Telecom Italia,” said Mario Bianchetti. “It enables us to rapidly deploy standardised services to our enterprise and wholesale customers, with increased Quality of Service, stricter SLAs and more predictable SLS.”
“Our international wholesale customers are increasingly specifying CE 2.0 as part of their tender process, so we are delighted to be the first in Europe to be able to offer the service,” concludes Fabio Randone, who oversees the design of new services for Telecom Italia Wholesale Services Innovation & Consulting.
