Service Assured Access for Wholesale Services
Telekom Romania, a member of the Deutsche Telekom family, offers its wholesale L2 Connect 2.0 E-Access services in Romania and throughout southeast Europe to service providers wishing to extend their service coverage beyond their own footprint.
Based on the Metro Ethernet Forum’s latest Carrier Ethernet 2.0 E-Access service definitions, L2 Connect allows service providers to deliver Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) services across multiple networks operated by different entities with guaranteed service level agreements (SLAs) and consistent user experience, whether the subscribers are on- or off-net.
Telekom Romania’s goal is to provide flexibility, transparency, reliability, and simple integration with operators offering MEF CE 2.0-certified services. That is why they chose RAD’s network interface devices (NIDs) as the service handoff point at the customer premises.
“Given the accelerated evolution of customers’ demands from legacy to new generation Ethernet-based services and the shift from the local to global market, we focused on developing our capability to provide the best standardized solutions featuring improved classes of services, service manageability and interoperability,” explains Sonia Radut, Products and Business Development Romania Project Manager, Telekom Romania Group. “In this respect, we selected RAD’S ETX-2 demarcation devices as the best solution for our MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0-certified services – L2Connect 2.0.”
