MRV's LambdaDriver Gains MEF Certifications

MRV Communications' LambdaDriver optical transport system has demonstrated compliance with two key Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) standards that help prove the product's ability to integrate optical transport with Carrier Ethernet services. Specifically, the company's LambdaDriver series participated in testing conducted by Iometrix, MEF's authorized testing and certification lab, and successfully passed MEF 9 and MEF 14 certifications.

MEF 9 defines the test suite when LambdaDriver is used as a user-network interface for setting up Ethernet virtual circuits and virtual LANs over WDM transport. These include Ethernet private line, Ethernet virtual private line, Ethernet LAN and related services. MEF 14 certification demonstrates LambdaDriver's traffic management features to ensure proper quality of service per service class across an Ethernet business service.
