Nov 23, 2017 | News and articles


We proudly announce that our Technical Architect, Bartosz Michalik, is the recipient of the MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP) of the Year award for 2017.




The award is given to the MEF-CECP who has shown leadership in the expansion of Carrier Ethernet around the world or has provided the most outstanding technical contribution to the Carrier Ethernet Technical Community. Michalik was recognized during an Awards Party at the MEF17 networking event in Orlando, Florida at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort.


Michalik has been actively involved in the activities towards definition of the data models and APIs for the LSO Presto reference point since its inception and is currently co-leading the LSO Presto Hackathon project.

During this MEF Annual Members’ Meeting, as in previous years, Bartosz served as a mentor at the Lifecycle Service Orchestration Hackathon focusing on various implementation works around LSO Presto, including reference system implementation for multi-vendor networks (OpenDaylight, NETCONF, OpenFlow) and tools to automate API definition from data models (Yang-to-Swagger generator).

Michalik also co-leads the OpenCS Packet WAN and Presto SDK projects, which are part of the CTO office development ecosystem for MEF’s Third Network vision.

“Bartosz has done great work for the MEF this year and for the LSO architecture, specifically with the Presto SDK and his mentorship in the hackathons focused on solving real-world service challenges,” said Marcin Paszkiewicz, Amartus CEO. “We are thrilled for Bartosz and congratulate him on this distinction and we look forward to the work that he and Amartus will continue with the MEF in the coming year.”

The judging panel for the MEF Awards was comprised of 14 global and regional senior analysts from ACG Research, ATLANTIC-ACM, Battle Green Research, Frost & Sullivan, Global Data, IHS Markit, Metanoia, Ovum, and Vertical Systems, in addition to independent judges.
