When Marcatel, a telecommunications carrier based in Mexico, needed help evolving its network to address increasing end-user demand for more services, it turned to Ciena. Underpinned by Ciena’s packet networking technologies, Marcatel’s network is now an advanced system that delivers orchestration-ready services and provides the highest level of performance, assurance, and agility. With this advanced infrastructure, Marcatel became the first Mexican carrier to earn the MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet (CE) certification.
