Carrier Ethernet World Congress Interoperability Event 2008

Berlin, September 2008: "Carrier Ethernet Services - The Future"

EANTC and 28 leading international vendors are staging the largest and most advanced public Carrier Ethernet multi-vendor interoperability showcase ever with over one hundred devices at Carrier Ethernet World Congress September 22-26, 2008 in Berlin, Germany.
This year’s interoperability event focused on the Future of Carrier Ethernet Services. While each previous event concentrated on specific topics such as mobile backhaul or service creation, this event aimed to congregate the knowledge and experience the industry gained in the last four years into a single modern, converged network showing all that a tier-one service provider is likely to encounter.

The participating vendors have verified that their Carrier Ethernet solutions are feature-rich, resilient and widely interoperable. Carrier Ethernet is ready to be "the" future network service of choice for all areas such as access, aggregation, and backbone transport for operators around the world.
