MEF Introduces MEF 3.0 Global Services Framework

On 14 Nov, 2017, MEF announced the MEF 3.0 Transformational Global Services Framework for defining, delivering, and certifying agile, assured, and orchestrated communication services across a global ecosystem of automated networks. MEF 3.0 services empower users with the dynamic performance and security required to thrive in the digital economy. MEF 3.0 blends sophisticated, standardized services with an emerging suite of LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration) APIs to provide an on-demand, cloud-centric experience with unprecedented user- and application-directed control over network resources and service capabilities.

MEF 3.0 MEF 3.0 Open LSO APIs & Orchestrated Services

MEF is driving standardization of open LSO APIs that enable orchestration of dynamic MEF 3.0 services across a global ecosystem of automated networks. This video highlights important LSO work underway - including inter-provider API development, MEF & ONAP collaboration, etc. -- and includes perspectives from top service (AT&T, CenturyLink, PCCW Global), technology (CENX, Amdocs), and MEF experts (Technical Director). MEF’s LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration) Reference Architecture guides agile development of standardized open LSO APIs that enable end-to-end orchestration of MEF 3.0 services across multiple providers and over multiple network technology domains (e.g., Packet WAN, Optical Transport, SD-WAN, 5G, etc.). LSO enables service providers to transition from a silo-structured BSS/OSS approach towards flexible end-to-end orchestration that helps maximize return on SDN and NFV investments.

MEF and SD-WAN Managed Services

MEF is leading industry efforts to standardize SD-WAN managed services as part of its transformational MEF 3.0 initiative to define, deliver, and certify agile, assured, and orchestrated services across a global ecosystem of automated networks. This video highlights important work underway and includes perspectives from top service (Comcast Business, Verizon), technology (Riverbed), and analyst (Frost & Sullivan) experts as well as MEF executives (CTO and SVP). MEF is defining SD-WAN service terminology, components, and implementations in the context of MEF’s LSO Reference Architecture and Framework (MEF 55) . This work will ensure consistency of performance, policy, and security of SD-WAN services orchestrated across multiple provider networks, leveraging open LSO APIs.
