Industry-wide, we continue to see robust growth for the global Carrier Ethernet services market, which analysts estimate will exceed $50 billion in 2016. Major service providers are expanding CE 2.0 coverage, improving end-to-end capabilities and SLAs for both on and off-net constructed services. Numerous small to medium size providers are joining the community of standardized CE 2.0 access service providers.

Concurrently, we are witnessing exciting activities related to the multi-year transformation of the CE market from a pre-defined connectivity model toward a software-driven model in which Third Network services provides a dynamic, cloud-like experience with user-directed control over network resources. This transition begins with CE 2.0 certified services as the foundation upon which to build dynamic connectivity services powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, and NFV.

Internally at MEF and together with SDOs and Open Source partners, numerous new works are underway to achieve our Third Network goals. Many of these and other industry developments were recently debated and demonstrated at MEF's flagship GEN15 event, with 35 countries and 250+ organizations participating. The MEF Seminars 2016: Building Dynamic Third Network Services Powered By CE 2.0, LSO, SDN & NFV are regional micro-events that brings leading subject matter experts to locations around the globe to educate participants on industry trends and developments. Emphasis is on the preparation that service providers should consider to establish a solid CE 2.0 platform in support of new value-added innovations.

14:00 Orchestrated Network Services with LSO, SDN and NFV

As Service Providers accelerate the deployment of dynamic services, automation that spans multiple Operator domains becomes mandatory to achieve scalability that includes off-net locations. This automation depends on standardization of Information Models, Operational Threads and Interface Profiles based on real-world use cases and Service Provider implementation strategies. This presentation explains how MEF builds these use cases - including serviceability, ordering, performance reporting, resource provisioning and many others - based on Service Provider expertise and integrates them using the latest modeling approaches to define the processes and APIs that Service Providers and Operators can use to interconnect in a fully automated fashion.

This is an essential introduction for anyone that is involved in transitioning Service Providers to a position of service delivery within minutes, rather than months, using partner networks.

14:15 Orchestrated Network Services with LSO, SDN and NFV

As Service Providers accelerate the deployment of dynamic services, automation that spans multiple Operator domains becomes mandatory to achieve scalability that includes off-net locations. This automation depends on standardization of Information Models, Operational Threads and Interface Profiles based on real-world use cases and Service Provider implementation strategies. This presentation explains how MEF builds these use cases - including serviceability, ordering, performance reporting, resource provisioning and many others - based on Service Provider expertise and integrates them using the latest modeling approaches to define the processes and APIs that Service Providers and Operators can use to interconnect in a fully automated fashion.

This is an essential introduction for anyone that is involved in transitioning Service Providers to a position of service delivery within minutes, rather than months, using partner networks.

Building Dynamic Third Network Services Powered By CE 2.0, LSO, SDN & NFV

 

Nairobi – June 6, 2016


Following the introduction of very successful seminars in 2015, we are excited to offer an expanded seminar program for 2016, with more cities, many new topical areas and content reflecting the significant evolution of the network services market experienced in 2015 and projected for 2016!

Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) provides a framework for the development, delivery, and certification of state-of-the-art standardized services. Industry-wide, we continue to see robust growth for the global Carrier Ethernet services market, which analysts estimate will exceed $50 billion in 2016. Major service providers are expanding CE 2.0 coverage, improving end-to-end capabilities and SLAs for both on and off-net constructed services. Numerous small to medium size providers are joining the community of standardized CE 2.0 access service providers.

Concurrently, we are witnessing exciting activities related to the multi-year transformation of the CE market from a pre-defined connectivity model toward a software-driven model in which Third Network services provides a dynamic, cloud-like experience with user-directed control over network resources. This transition begins with CE 2.0 certified services as the foundation upon which to build dynamic connectivity services powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, and NFV.

Internally at MEF and together with SDOs and Open Source partners, numerous new works are underway to achieve our Third Network goals. Many of these and other industry developments were recently debated and demonstrated at MEF's flagship GEN15 event, with 35 countries and 250+ organizations participating. The MEF Seminars 2016: Building Dynamic Third Network Services Powered By CE 2.0, LSO, SDN & NFV are regional micro-events that brings leading subject matter experts to locations around the globe to educate participants on industry trends and developments. Emphasis is on the preparation that service providers should consider to establish a solid CE 2.0 platform in support of new value-added innovations.

14:15 Orchestrated Network Services with LSO, SDN and NFV

As Service Providers accelerate the deployment of dynamic services, automation that spans multiple Operator domains becomes mandatory to achieve scalability that includes off-net locations. This automation depends on standardization of Information Models, Operational Threads and Interface Profiles based on real-world use cases and Service Provider implementation strategies. This presentation explains how MEF builds these use cases - including serviceability, ordering, performance reporting, resource provisioning and many others - based on Service Provider expertise and integrates them using the latest modeling approaches to define the processes and APIs that Service Providers and Operators can use to interconnect in a fully automated fashion.

This is an essential introduction for anyone that is involved in transitioning Service Providers to a position of service delivery within minutes, rather than months, using partner networks.
