MEF PERSPECTIVES

Digital Transformation at the Edge

Digital transformation is much more than moving IT workloads to the cloud.  As enterprises move through their digital transformation journey, the building and network edge become critical infrastructure that enables all kinds of new workloads of a distributed cloud. In this session, MEF’s CTO will cover what MEF is working on to enable network transformation to support the enterprises’ ever-evolving needs of new digital transformation workloads from the edge.

 


DEEP DIVE 1

Edge Innovation

Edge Cloud has become a big topic for network service providers over the past year or so. What is the reason for the growing interest? Will service providers play a big role in delivering these new edge services and who else is involved? This deep dive will deal with the key challenges that network service providers face operationalizing edge cloud-based services.

DEEP DIVE 2

Automated and Dynamic Services all the Way to the Edge

The ever-increasing demand for digitized network services is changing the consumption models to a cloud-native, on-demand world in terms of how customers want to engage and procure infrastructure and network services, and how they interact with their ecosystems. Enterprises are demanding automated and dynamic services from their networks at every step of a transaction and all the way to the customer edge. As larger swaths of GDP are being digitally enabled, demand for distributed, hybrid, multi-cloud infrastructure is only increasing.

The combination of MEF standards and collaboration with partner SDOs and open source communities on APIs powers the automation required to realize the promise of dynamic network services delivered across participating network and cloud service providers.
