ECI recently participated in the EANTC Interoperability Showcase in Paris at MPLS+SDN+NFV World 2016. Interoperability showcases have long been a widely accepted practice in the telecommunications industry, but when considering the immense commitment in time, resources and manpower required of vendors one may wonder why. In a word, OPENNESS.
In the world of telecoms, interoperability showcases aren’t anything new. As every year, a number of vendors recently gathered at EANTC lab in Berlin to gain EANTC recognition and certification for their equipment’s interoperability. While the results of the 2 weeks testing were publicized and analyzed across the industry, there’s so much more to these showcases than many people realize.
