MEF 9 and MEF 14 certification for Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 70xx series

The Multi Service Provisioning Platform has been certified to transport Carrier-Ethernet-grade services

Nokia Siemens Networks announced that its hiT 70xx Multi
Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP) has received Metro Ethernet Forum
(MEF) certification to provide MEF 9 and MEF 14 Ethernet services. The
certification establishes that the hiT 70xx series is capable of
transporting Carrier Ethernet services across telecom networks and is
interoperable with certified equipment from other vendors.

The
MEF 9 and MEF 14 certifications confirm the quality and reliability of
point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint
Ethernet services: EPL (Ethernet Private Line), EVPL (Ethernet Virtual
Private Line) and E-LAN (Ethernet LAN Service).

Nokia Siemens Networks received the certification after passing
compliance tests conducted by Iomatrix, a third- party company that
offers testing and verification of Ethernet services for all types of
network products.

“As carrier networks migrate to Ethernet to handle increased demand
for IP/Ethernet services, our hiT 70xx platform ensures quality and
reliability in transporting operators’ legacy traffic, as well as the
new Ethernet traffic,” said Mikko Lavanti head of Nokia Siemens
Networks’ next generation metro business line.

The Nokia Siemens Networks hiT 70xx platform enables lower costs for
operators through multilayer optimization as it does not depend on
routers to provide Carrier Ethernet functionality. It is also easy to
operate and integrate into existing networks so that legacy
infrastructure can be utilized to provide new services.

Nokia Siemens Networks will display its new, more compact hiT 7065
optical platform for the first time at 3G Middle East Telco World
Summit in Dubai on December 7, 2009. High availability, fast service
provisioning and customized services such as bandwidth on demand and
multipoint-to-multipoint make hiT 7065 a future-proof investment for
new packet-oriented applications while supporting existing
circuit-based services.

For operators in the Middle East who are migrating to 3G and LTE,
the Nokia Siemens Networks hiT 70xx portfolio will provide a smooth and
field-proven evolution towards packet-based services to ensure a
consistent end-user experience.
