Founded in 2001, MEF is an authoritative certification entity for Metro Ethernet in the industry, which is committed to solving the technical problems of Metro Ethernet. Established on the basis of the previous operator's Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0), MEF 3.0 is the latest specifications and certification plan, featuring flexibility and continuous increments. It not only provides services equipped with flexibility and universality similar to the Internet, but also has the performance and security of carrier-class Ethernet. It is the boldest architecture MEF has ever implemented, which will revolutionize the entire communication industry, said Mr. Nan Chen, President of MEF.

Utilizing the cloud-based platform for virtualization testing, MEF3.0 certification plan's certification system includes network automation, virtualization, interoperation, and other certifications for LSO, SDN, NFV and the operator's Ethernet 2.0.

This time, MEF 3.0 certification system has certified two routers (MSR56-60, SR8804-X) and two switches (S5130-34C-HI, S7506E) from New H3C. Based on the high level of overall performance and reliability, these four core products of New H3C have passed hundreds of strict tests, ultimately passing all certifications under the MEF3.0 standard specifications, performing above expectations.

"In terms of the global market structure, certifications for technology vendors and operators under MEF 3.0 standards will play a key role in accelerating the industry's transformation into providing agile, reliable, and mashup-based services. These will culminate in promoting development that is optimized for the digital economy. The achievement (achieving MEF 3.0 certification) New H3C has accomplished indicates that its devices have the highest level of performance and availability, which can fully support the current globally-recognized standard Ethernet service market." said Mr. Nan Chen, President of MEF, who expressed congratulations to New H3C achieving MEF3.0 certification.

As a leading provider of digital solutions, New H3C will continue to tap into its innovative spirit, leading and promoting the continuous development of industrial transformation. Looking ahead, New H3C vows to create more value for users, and construct a better digital world, based on the digital technical strategy of "Application Driven, Shaping the Digital Future".
