The MEF is a global industry alliance accelerating the worldwide adoption of Carrier-class Ethernet networks and services.  As an active member of the MEF, Global Capacity participates as a valued representative on the forum’s quarterly meetings, panels and committees.  Global Capacity’s commitment to efficient and cost-effective Ethernet solutions is tightly aligned with the MEF’s recent announcement of its Service Operations Committee (SOC), created with the purpose to define, streamline and standardize processes for buying, selling, delivering, and operating MEF-defined services.

Further solidifying Global Capacity’s commitment to accelerated Ethernet delivery is its employment of knowledgeable, skilled Carrier Ethernet experts. Rick King, the company’s Principal Network Engineer/Architect, recently joined an elite group of telecom professionals who hold the MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP) certification.  The MEF-CECP is the industry’s first vendor-independent and globally recognized professional certification that positions Ethernet as a service delivery and WAN technology.
