Dynamic Services for the Digital Economy and Hyper-connected World

The communications industry is transitioning to agile, assured, and orchestrated services that are optimized for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world. These emerging services provide an on-demand experience with user-directed control over service capabilities and are delivered over automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, NFV, CE 2.0 (Carrier Ethernet 2.0), and MEF 3.0.

Our seminars will focus on exciting MEF-led industry initiatives to build a global ecosystem of connected networks supporting orchestration of dynamic services across multiple providers and multiple technology domains within provider networks. MEF is working closely with many of the world’s leading service and technology providers, open source projects, and industry organizations to accelerate the creation of this global ecosystem, which will be enabled by standardized open LSO APIs that orchestrate standardized services.

Topics and Materials


Using a one-day format, MEF Seminars are regional micro-events that will bring leading subject matter experts to locations around the globe to educate participants on industry trends and developments. 

Seminar Topics include:

  • MEF 3.0 Transformational Global Services Framework:
    • Standardized, Orchestrated Services. The MEF 3.0 service family includes dynamic Carrier Ethernet, wavelength, IP, SD-WAN, Security-as-a-Service, and other virtualized services that will be orchestrated over programmable networks using LSO APIs.
    • Open LSO APIs. MEF’s LSO Reference Architecture guides agile development of standardized LSO APIs that enable 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.).
    • Service and Technology Certifications. MEF 3.0 certification is delivered by MEF’s testing partner, Iometrix, using an advanced cloud-based virtualized test platform that empowers subscribing companies to certify that their services and technologies comply with the latest MEF 3.0 standards.
    • Expanded Community Collaboration. MEF is working with many of the world’s leading service and technology providers, open source projects, standards associations, and enterprises to realize a shared vision of dynamic services orchestrated across automated networks.
