Our history – In 1991, our Chairman Herbert Almus founded EANTC as part of the Interdepartmental Research Center for Networking and Mulitmedia Technology of the Technical University of Berlin (TUB), Germany.
In addition to research and development, EANTC tested and certified FDDI systems.
In 1993, we expanded our activities to include ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and other high-speed networking technologies. Our highly practical seminars were particularly appreciated in the network technology sector. Almost all leading manufacturers of network components were our customers, and still are.
In 1999, we spun off from the TUB as EANTC AG. We have since extended our services to include distinctive areas such as Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), IP (Internet Protocol) switching, Triple Play, Voice over IP and mobile network technologies.
