PETACH TIKVA, Israel, May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC Network® solutions for service providers, critical infrastructures and data center operators, announced today that it is now an officially accredited MEF Training Provider. ECI joins the prestigious short list of training providers which have been approved by MEF to help train and prepare industry professionals towards the MEF-CECP certification test.
In connection with its new status, the company also announced that it is now offering a series of preparation courses for the MEF-CECP test. This exam certifies professionals who have acquired the key competency and skills to design, market, deploy and support Carrier Ethernet equipment, networks, and services that represent the next generation of telecommunications technology. The exam covers the fundamentals of Carrier Ethernet including MEF technical specifications, access technologies, MEF certification, target applications, circuit emulation over Ethernet, SOAM and comparison with other network services.
"Eighty percent of our MEF-CECP candidates prefer to prepare for the exam by means of instructor-led training with one of our accredited training partners. We continuously audit each of these providers to verify that their training courses meet our stringent requirements. Taking into account the long line of cooperation between ECI and MEF, this additional accreditation was an obvious step forward for both sides," said Rick Bauer, Director of Certification, MEF.
"For years, we have received excellent feedback about our professional training course offering from our customers. It is an honor to have been approved as an Accredited Training Partner (ATP) following a robust MEF audit. Noting that the preparation courses are known to increase the chances of passing the MEF-CECP certification test by more than 400%, we look forward to doing our part to help eligible candidates properly prepare and meet success," said Assaf Tiran, Head of the Global Services Division at ECI.
