“This certification is a great accomplishment for Windstream and validates that the design, quality and performance of our Carrier Ethernet services conform to the highest and most current industry standards,” stated Art Nichols, Vice President of Windstream’s Network Architecture. “The CE 2.0 certification along with Windstream’s reliable data network infrastructure provides our customers with a very competitive Ethernet solution within the U.S. marketplace.”

By achieving the MEF CE 2.0 certification, Windstream’s customers have the confidence that E-Access services have been stringently tested and are compliant with the latest MEF specifications. Windstream meets or exceeds all requirements that customers have for MEF CE 2.0 service levels, class of service requirements, as well as improved interoperability with customer networks.

“Windstream’s MEF CE 2.0 certification positions us as a trusted partner for our carrier, content, and wholesale customers,” said Jeff Brown, Director of Product Management and Marketing for Windstream Carrier Solutions. “We are excited that in 2016 our customers will be able to grow their businesses via our expansive Ethernet service area.”

An enhancement to MEF CE 1.0, the first generation of service standards to which Windstream already conformed, MEF CE 2.0 focuses heavily on interoperability and interconnection. All testing is performed by an independent third-party company, Iometrix. The certification provides valuable assistance to end users by speeding up the selection process of new services and reducing procurement risk. Its development was driven by the rapidly growing and evolving Carrier Ethernet market, in which multi-vendor networks and services are becoming the norm.

“The MEF congratulates Windstream for its outstanding achievement of meeting the demanding performance requirements of CE 2.0 certification for its E-Access services. This demonstrates the company’s commitment to excellence and innovation in developing and delivering Ethernet services across its networks,” stated Nan Chen, President of the MEF.

The MEF, the global industry body for Carrier Ethernet, aims to accelerate the worldwide adoption of Carrier-class Ethernet networks and services by defining industry standards and setting a baseline that carriers, service providers and other enterprises can trust.
