Carrier Ethernet World Congress &
Carrier Ethernet APAC 2012

Barcelona, September 17 - 20, 2012

Hong Kong, December 3 - 5, 2012

EANTC invited interested vendors to participate in the 8th edition of the public multi-vendor Carrier Ethernet interoperability test event and showcase. After two-weeks of hot staging in our lab in Berlin, the results were presented at the Carrier Ethernet World Congress in Barcelona (September 17 - 20, 2012) and at the Carrier Ethernet APAC in Hong Kong (December 3 - 5, 2012).

Carrier Ethernet is still developing fast. Yet with every innovation there are new challenges. During our hot staging we and the participating vendors tackled these challenges. In the end we gained knowledge about the state-of-the-art of Carrier Ethernet today. This time, we focused on the following areas:

  • Progressing Ethernet service assurance and enabling customer portals using Y.1564 Service Activation and Performance Monitoring
  • Providing stable synchronization for utility markets and LTE by integrating IEEE 1588 and SyncE - including Microwave transport
  • Managing multi-domain services through SNMP enabled Service OAM and software defined networking
