Overture Celebrates Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (CECP) Milestone with the MEF

Sep 6, 2013 by Keith Donahue

Following the 2012 introduction by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) of the Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (CECP) individual certification program, Overture Networks embraced the opportunity to train and certify as many of our customer-facing professionals as possible.

In the words of the MEF, the CECP program is “for telecommunication professionals seeking to validate their expertise, skills and knowledge of Carrier Ethernet technologies, standards, services and applications”.  Not all that different from the goals of other certifications in our industry, except this is the first one focused on standard terminology and frameworks unique to Carrier Ethernet networks.

This week, the MEF announces that it has certified the 1,000th Carrier Ethernet professional.
