Fujitsu Releases New Study Guide for MEF Carrier Ethernet Professional Certification

Industry’s first comprehensive MEF Carrier Ethernet eBook Study Guide, now available for the Apple iPad

RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions, announced today the availability of the industry’s first, comprehensive Carrier Ethernet study guide focusing on Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) services and related technologies. This new eBook study guide available now for the Apple iPad, helps individuals prepare for the MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP) exam.

“The MEF welcomes high quality study material to prepare those working towards attaining MEF-CECP status.”

The MEF-CECP exam is the industry’s first vendor-independent, globally recognized professional certification that focuses on Ethernet as a service delivery and wide area networking technology. The certification enables technical professionals in the telecommunication industry the opportunity to validate their expertise, skills and knowledge of Carrier Ethernet-related technologies, services and applications. MEF-certified professionals are awarded an MEF certificate and listing in the Directory of MEF Certified Professionals on the MEF’s web site.

“Professionals who earn MEF Carrier Ethernet professional certification demonstrate extensive knowledge of the technology and how to apply it,” said Kevin Vachon, Chief Operating Officer, Metro Ethernet Forum. “The MEF welcomes high quality study material to prepare those working towards attaining MEF-CECP status.”

“To prepare for the MEF-CECP exam, some prefer classroom-based training while others prefer self-study due to time or cost-constraints,” said Ralph Santitoro, Director of Carrier Ethernet Market Development at Fujitsu and co-author of the MEF-CECP exam. “With both learning approaches, there has been a need for comprehensive study materials and we filled that void with this new MEF study guide,” said Santitoro who also developed the study guide in conjunction with Fujitsu colleague Jon Kieffer.

The study guide covers the 10 topic areas on the exam and provides over 150 practice test questions to assess comprehension of each subject. In addition to helping prepare for the MEF-CECP exam, the study guide enables readers to advance their understanding of MEF-standardized Carrier Ethernet services, applications and related technologies.

The Fujitsu “MEF-CECP Exam Study Guide for Carrier Ethernet Professionals” is now available for purchase on the Apple iBookstore for $34.99. Fujitsu will also be releasing the study guide for Amazon Kindle E-readers and Android™-based tablets as well as a print book version in the coming weeks.
