Ritter Communications, an Arkansas-based communications provider, recently received its MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) certification based on Ciena’s packet networking products. Achieving CE 2.0 compliance validates that Ritter meets the high industry standards to provide its customers with a faster and more consistent rollout of Carrier Ethernet services, including both port-based and VLAN-aware versions of E-Line, E-LAN, and E-Access service types, and can confidently offer wholesale services that meet stringent operator-to-operator requirements. This ensures Ritter will be able to continue providing businesses, community anchors and residents in previously underserved locations with the benefits of advanced Ethernet service delivery and broadband connectivity.

Key Facts:

• Ritter is a fifth-generation family business founded in 1886. Today, through a modern, intelligent infrastructure, Ritter owns and operates three rural local exchange carriers (RLECs) in northern Arkansas and western Tennessee; a fiber based competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in key communities in northeast & central Arkansas; and, a wholesale services network throughout Arkansas and western Tennessee.

• Ritter can now provide its customers with certified E-Line, E-LAN, and E-Access services based on Ciena’s packet networking portfolio. MEF CE 2.0 certification of E-Access services enables Ritter to market these services to global operators needing “off-net” access that meets the stringent MEF criteria in its footprint. Certified E-Line and E-LAN services improve competitive advantage by providing high-quality mobile backhaul services to large mobile operators.

• This certification builds on Ritter’s long history with Ciena and the company’s packet networking portfolio, including the 5160 and 5150 Service Aggregation Switches and the 3900 family of service delivery switches. Using technologies such as MPLS-TP and G.8032, Ritter has assembled a network that provides both ease of deployment and high reliability enabling rigorous service level agreements.

Executive Comments:

• “Our efforts to achieve globally recognized MEF certification for both our employees and our services demonstrates our commitment to network quality. This allows us to ensure our Enterprise and Wholesale customers requiring connectivity in Arkansas and Tennessee are able to obtain world class, quality CE 2.0 Ethernet services and features throughout the diverse metro and rural markets that we serve.”
Greg Sunderwood, Vice President of Engineering and Product, Ritter Communications

• “Bandwidth consumption is surging globally, and this growth would not be possible without the ubiquity of Ethernet being adopted across all types of applications, such as data center interconnect, mobile backhaul, and private line business services. For operators like Ritter, MEF CE 2.0 certified networks will help improve their ability to quickly and cost-effectively deliver services that meet stringent customer requirements.”
Jason Phipps, General Manager and Vice President, North America, Ciena
