Everstream has earned its first MEF 3.0 Company Certification, validating that the business’s fiber solutions adhere to rigorous industry best practices for standardized network-based services. Headquartered in the U.S., Everstream is one of 27 companies worldwide to have earned the MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet certification.
MEF is a non-profit industry forum of network, cloud and technology providers. According to MEF, its standards, which form the basis of certification, are developed, reviewed, refined and ratified by the MEF membership to represent the hallmark of best-of-breed industry standards for network services and technology.
Everstream conducted and passed the 10 Gb Ethernet private line (EPL) and Ethernet virtual private line (EVPL) tests. EPL provides a point-to-point Ethernet connection between a pair of dedicated user-network interfaces (UNIs), with a high degree of transparency. EVPL provides a virtual point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connection between a group of UNIs.
Specifically, MEF’s Carrier Ethernet standards define technology-agnostic layer-2 services that can be consumed directly by the enterprise or used between access, transit and retail service providers for backhaul, cloud access or multi-provider end-to-end services for seamless on-net and off-net connectivity.
