Roy Kruger, Technical Advisor to Minister of Communications
November 2012. Johannesburg, South Africa. – Roy Kruger, the Technical Advisor to the Minister of Communications, Dina Pule, gave his full support to the MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum’s) push into South Africa, stating that the telecom service providers should join the industry standards body to accelerate connectivity and broadband availability in the country.
“Our vision as a nation is to give each individual access to broadband services by 2020,” stated Kruger at the MEF’s inaugural Ethernet Business Services Seminar. “The MEF has global experience of providing the necessary standards to allow different networks to connect to each other through common standards. This approach is compelling in South Africa, which has great networks, but which lacks the interconnectivity to deliver the national and international world-class network we need. South Africa needs the MEF to get all parties to interconnect and quickly.”
