Fujitsu's Santitoro maintains spot on Metro Ethernet Forum board

Ethernet veteran Ralph Santitoro, currently the director of Carrier Ethernet market development at Fujitsu Network Communications, has just been reelected to the Metro Ethernet Forum's (MEF) board of directors.

An original founding member of the MEF, Santitoro will not only continue to serve on the MEF board but will continue his work as the co-chair of the industry group's Professional Certification sub-committee where he is charged with developing a new Carrier Ethernet professional certification program and co-developing a new technical specification that defines Ethernet access services.

In addition, Santitoro participates in the Global Interconnect Working Group to help simplify and accelerate the deployment of Ethernet services through standardized External Network to Network Interconnection (ENNIs) arrangements and the emerging Carrier Ethernet Exchanges segment.
