Net2Edge Demonstrates The First NID To Deliver Carrier Ethernet Over 4G/LTE In Proof of Concept At MEF17

Orlando, FL, 13 November 2017 Net2Edge, the leading network access company launches Liberator™ 305-LTE, the world’s first 1G Network Interface Device (NID) that delivers Carrier Ethernet over fibre and 4G/LTE at the global networking event MEF17.


Net2Edge, a MEF member and bronze MEF17 sponsor is one of the 11 Proof of Concept companies to be selected to participate in the interactive Proof of Concept (PoC) Showcase at MEF17.  Liberator 305-LTE will be on full display at the center of the MEF17 global networking hall, from 13 to 15 November in Orlando, Florida at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort.

The focus of the demonstration will be on resilience, and will reveal how with Liberator 305-LTE in the event of fibre failure, service can be maintained through use of the 4G/LTE radio.

Other applications showcased by Net2Edge will include:

  • Dynamic bandwidth allocation providing supplementary bandwidth
  • Rapid path to revenue since service is not dependent on the delivery of fibre
  • Separation of data and management traffic

Attendees to the Net2Edge booth will have the opportunity to see an in-depth overview into the benefits of the Liberator™ series that is supporting customer’s legacy applications across their Ethernet network.

“We are very excited to be part of the MEF17 PoC concept showcase and showing our Innovative Access Evolution products ’ said Adam Turner, Director of Marketing, Net2Edge.

“We are already making a real difference to helping solve what is today the biggest network operator conundrum – retiring legacy networks smoothly and effectively without turning customers away.” added Kevin Martin, CEO, Net2Edge.

“The PoC Showcase is aimed to spotlight innovations by service providers and network technology vendors that promise to advance agile, assured and orchestrated services  across multiple providers and multiple network technology domains,” said Nan Chen, President, MEF. “We are excited by contributions like Net2Edge’s, and look forward to seeing these demos in action.”
