SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Spirent Communications plc. (LSE: SPT), a global leader in test & measurement, today announced it exclusively powered the testing of the Carrier Ethernet Global Interconnect demonstration conducted by EANTC and co-organized by ancotel to validate Carrier Ethernet service interoperability across nine European service providers including Belgacom ICS, Equinix, Expereo International, Level3 Communications, P&TLuxembourg, Teragate, Tinet, and Ucomline. The demonstration will be featured during the Light Reading Ethernet Europe 2010 conference in London, April 12-13.

Interconnectivity between service providers is central to their ability to deliver advanced and scalable Carrier Ethernet services. By implementing interconnect standards such as those specified by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), operators are better prepared to manage and deliver wholesale end-to-end Carrier Ethernet service while maintaining global service level agreements (SLAs).

“Carrier Ethernet Interconnect is critical for service providers that are looking to expand their global foot print by simplifying provisioning and troubleshooting while maintaining SLAs,” said Stan Hubbard, senior analyst, Heavy Reading. “Testing and validation by companies such as Spirent has shown that service providers can be confident in their large scale deployment of the MEF specification.”
