The MEF CE 2.0 certification is recognition that SES Networks now has the capability to deliver today's most advanced, high-performance and secure Ethernet services across its global footprint. Achieving MEF certification is the first of SES Networks’ many initiatives to transform the role of satellite-enabled services as a pillar of mainstream global connectivity.
The MEF association and its members drive standards for Ethernet services within a framework of agile, assured, and orchestrated services optimized for the digital economy. This is the first time MEF CE 2.0 certification has been awarded to a satellite-enabled data service provider, further validating that SES Networks’ unique Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite-based Ethernet Private Line, E-LAN, E-Access and E-Transit services perform on-par to terrestrial services.
SES Networks’ fibre-like performance and satellite reach paired with MEF’s highest-standard classes of service (CoS) empower customers and partners to offer extended and new standards-compliant services by leveraging ubiquitous satellite Ethernet service interconnection on a truly global basis.
“MEF congratulates SES Networks for being the first satellite player to achieve the CE 2.0 certification of Ethernet services. We welcome the diversity of the satellite market into the community of providers of certified services and congratulate SES Networks for meeting the exacting standards of quality and performance that will benefit customers,” said Nan Chen, President of MEF.
“Providing high-performance, trusted and secure connectivity is at the core of what we do at SES Networks. By becoming the first in our field to be MEF-certified, we can proudly say that our end-to-end managed services are of guaranteed performance levels, allowing our customers to stay focused on maximising business opportunities. Our work with MEF is one of several initiatives SES Networks is undertaking to deliver advanced intelligent network architectures and to evolve agile, assured, orchestrated service definitions that move the industry forward,” said JP Hemingway, Executive Vice President, Product, Marketing and Strategy of SES Networks.
