MEF launches Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification program
The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has launched a Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification program for equipment vendors and service providers, complementing the recent launch of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0).CE 2.0 expands the number of services from three in Carrier Ethernet 1.0 to eight services, and supports manageability across interconnected service provider networks – unlike the standardized CE 1.0 services delivered over a single provider’s network. E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree, and a new E-Access service type are available for certification both as port-based and virtual services.The MEF says CE 2.0 brings significant benefits by matching the enterprise users’ application performance needs to MEF services with specific service-level agreements (SLAs), thus optimizing bandwidth use and costs. The MEF developed CE 2.0 certification to bring these new benefits to service providers, equipment vendors, and users more quickly, with higher quality and at lower cost. The 680 test cases in the new certification program replace months or even years of costly and highly specialized test development required for assuring compliance with the new CE 2.0 services, the MEF asserts.Registration for CE 2.0 certification for is now open for equipment vendors and will open on May 28 for service providers. The MEF is providing detailed program descriptions in two key documents: the CE 2.0 Certification Blueprint and the CE 2.0 Technical Foundation, which are available at http://www.MetroEthernetForum.org/.Widely recognized MEF 9 and MEF 14 certifications remain valid and available under the umbrella of the new “CE 1.0 Certification” brand.“CE 1.0 Certification has been an extraordinary success,” said Nan Chen, president of the MEF. “With nearly 150 vendors and service providers already offering over 1,000 certified products and services globally, there is no lack of choice for demanding customers. With CE 2.0 experiencing immediate adoption, we expect CE 2.0 certification program to exceed the uptake of our first certification program.”There will be a four month initial phase for the new certifications culminating in announcements of the first certified equipment vendors in 4Q 2012 and the first certified service providers in 1Q 2013. As with CE 1.0 certification, successfully certified members will be permitted to use the appropriate CE 2.0 certification logo and will be listed on the MEF’s Certification Registry on the MEF website.
Mexico's CFE Telecom taps Xtera for 100G network
CFE Telecom, the business unit of Mexico’s state-owned utility Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), has selected equipment supplier Xtera Communications, Inc. and Intercable, a Mexican system integrator, to transform its 22,000-km optical ground wire (OPGW) based optical network into a high-capacity, multi-use national network for enterprise, research, education, business, and government services.Following an international tender procedure, CFE picked Xtera’s Nu-Wave Optima platform, which is based on what Xtera claims is the industry’s most advanced 100G technology plus Raman technology. The flexible multi-terabit optical network was deployed in 2011, and is currently in commercial operation.CFE Telecom’s OPGW fiber infrastructure is built along power lines with several extremely challenging routes in excess of 2,000 km in length. One of the attractions of the Nu-Wave Optima platform, according to Xtera, is that it offers long-span capabilities and ultra-long-haul reach to enable the upgrade without building any new regeneration sites.In addition to being the world’s largest 100G network, the CFE deployment also includes the longest all-optical routes ever deployed with 100G waves:A 24-span, 2,500-km, all-optical path from Ciudad Juarez to Mexico City going through nine ROADMs (with spans ranging from 30 to 227 km / 53 dB) A 1,350-km route from Monterrey to Mexico City that includes a 250-km/60-dB span.In addition, Xtera says its Nu-Wave Optima system comes with a multi-terabit design capacity that exceeds the original long-term requirements, creating a capacity overhead that will enable CFE to meet future demand at a predictable cost. The 100G optical transport system currently delivers a line capacity of 15 Tbps on reach exceeding 3,000 km. For specific unrepeatered applications, a capacity of 34 x 100G was recently transmitted over a cable attenuation exceeding 74 dB (see "Xtera demos 100 Gbps with Raman amplification").“CFE’s strict evaluation process was necessary to identify the best company with the best technology to help transform its internal network into one that would be capable of benefitting the entire nation of Mexico, supporting a multitude of emerging bandwidth-intensive applications,” said Eduardo Cerrillo, CEO of Intercable. He also added, “We are proud to have contributed to deliver a world-class all 100G network that is fully operational, carrying customer traffic and reaching every region of Mexico.”
RUSNANO invests in NeoPhotonics for Russian market expansion
RUSNANO, a Moscow-based investment firm, has invested $39.8 million in optical module and subsystem vendor NeoPhotonics Corp. (NYSE: NPTN). NeoPhotonics says the investment, made via the acquisition of 4.97 million newly issued common shares of NeoPhotonics in a private placement, will be used to fund global expansion – including in Russia and other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries.As a result of the investment, RUSNANO Managing Director Sergey Polikarpov has received a seat on NeoPhotonics’ board of directors.RUSNANO was founded in March 2011 as an open joint stock company through reorganization of the state corporation Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies and controls $10 billion in funds. The Government of the Russian Federation owns all of RUSNANO’s shares.The $8.00 per share RUSNANO paid for the placement represents a significant premium over the $4.49 trading price of NeoPhotonics’ stock last Friday, April 27. RUSNANO cannot resell the shares for two years, at which time NeoPhotonics must register the shares for potential resale.“We are pleased to receive this strategic investment from RUSNANO,” said Tim Jenks, chairman, president, and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We welcomed this investment as it aligns with our strategy to accelerate growth globally, with particular emphasis on fast growing and emerging markets, including in Russia and the CIS countries.“Not only are these markets deploying high speed, agile and fiber-to-the-home networks but we are also seeing more of our customers target service providers and invest locally in Russia and more broadly in Eastern Europe,” continued Jenks. “We started to see and investigate this growth opportunity several years ago, and we added sales capability in the region and have since been engaged with and supplying several customers in Russia. With the planned support from RUSNANO, we believe that NeoPhotonics is well-positioned to capitalize on new and greater opportunities in the region.”“One of the unique advantages of NeoPhotonics is its vertically-integrated design and manufacturing processes for photonic integrated circuit-based products,” said Polikarpov. “The company’s planned research and production facilities in Russia are intended to be able to perform a wide range of steps from PIC development to processing and fabrication. We believe that with our support in Russia, we can further enhance the company’s development cycles and shorten the time for broader adoption for NeoPhotonics products in Russia and the global market.”
