PARIS -- EANTC AG (European Advanced Networking Test Center) announced the results of the latest EANTC interoperability event today, which will be publicly showcased live at the MPLS & Ethernet World Congress in Paris this week. The test of 36 device types from 19 vendors serves as a proof-of-concept study for network operators, validating the state of the art in packet network innovation.
AimValley, Alcatel-Lucent, Broadcom, BTI Systems, Calnex Solutions, Cisco, ECI Telecom, Ericsson, Extreme Networks, Hitachi, Huawei, Ixia, Juniper Networks, NEC, OE Solutions, Spirent Communications, and Symmetricom participated in the showcase and the preceding hot-staging. More than forty-five engineers worked with EANTCâ€™s team for three full weeks at EANTC lab in Berlin, Germany.
EANTC confirmed interoperability of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 implementations of performance monitoring per class of service, an important solution enabling service providers to commit to strict application-specific service levels. In addition, service activation testing according to ITU Y.1564 was a focus area promising reduced field support cost while guaranteeing proper Ethernet service operations from the start.
