Research Results: MEF-CECP Effectiveness Benchmark Study

Vertical Systems Group’s MEF-CECP Effectiveness Benchmark Study is the first independent research effort to quantify the benefits of the MEF’s Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP) certification program. Study results are based on survey responses from 330 MEF-CECPs representing 38 companies throughout the world.

  • Topline survey results are shown in the infographic below. An overwhelming 87 percent of MEF-CECPs who were surveyed believe that their investment in certification has been extremely or significantly worthwhile overall, including both personally and for their companies. The value of MEF-CECP expertise garnered Effectiveness Ratings of 9.0 (out of 10) for helping to improve the typical Carrier Ethernet sales process, and a 9.3 rating for order flow improvements.
