Ethernet guru Craig Easley joins Sunrise Telecom

As Sunrise Telecom continues to increase its focus on the Ethernet market, the vendor has turned to Ethernet pioneer Craig Easley to lead the company's worldwide marketing efforts.

Easley is probably best known for his work as a member of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) where he served as the Chairman of the Ethernet Access Subcommittee and more recently taking part in the MEF's mobile backhaul initiative--a key focus area for Sunrise Telecom.

In addition to his roles at the MEF, Easley held various product marketing/management roles at a number of prominent Carrier Ethernet vendors, including Actelis Networks, Extreme Networks and Nortel Networks. More recently, Easley founded the Carrier Ethernet Academy, a company that provides technical training on Carrier Ethernet technology and the MEF's technical standardization work.
