Ethernet Alliance Launches Certification Program

The Ethernet Alliance is launching a Certification Program to assist end users and designers of IEEE 802 Ethernet equipment with purchasing decisions.

The program is designed to standardize test suites related to IEEE 802 Ethernet standards so as to clearly identify to which testing criteria a particular Ethernet solution has successfully been certified.

The certification program is separate from other internal or external interoperability activities conducted within the Ethernet Alliance. Companies who successfully pass the identified test criteria will be awarded an Ethernet Alliance Certification stamp with an assigned nomenclature to identify which test suite was completed.
