PHILADELPHIA -- Comcast Corporation, a global media and technology company, today announced it is the first service provider in the world to achieve Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) certification from the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) for E-Line and E-LAN services. As more businesses shift from legacy telecom services to Ethernet, the new CE 2.0 certifications are designed to deliver improved classes of service, service manageability, and interoperability for delivery across multiple networks. “A milestone was reached this year when for the first time Carrier Ethernet services share of bandwidth exceeded the sum total of all legacy telecom services across the world, with Frost & Sullivan, Vertical Systems and Infonetics predicting a near $48 billion services market by 2015. We are therefore very pleased to see that Comcast has achieved the latest milestone in our industry - becoming the first CE 2.0 Service Provider,” said Nan Chen, president, MEF. Comcast Corp.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
