Summary:

This document focuses on the business case for service providers to certify MEF 3.0 CE services


Abstract

This document focuses on the business case for service providers to certify MEF 3.0 CE services. We explore how certification can strengthen customer relations, increase revenue opportunities, and improve operational efficiencies for retail and wholesale service providers. MEF 3.0 CE certification validates performance excellence, provides competitive differentiation, and enables service providers to establish a standards-compliant presence within a federation of automated networks, among other business benefits. Participation in such a federation is particularly valuable because it creates an opportunity to provide higher margin, highly differentiated inter-provider services that leave behind commoditized, low-margin fixed-bandwidth services.

This document is designed to assist service provider decision makers to successfully drive the pro-cess of certifying MEF 3.0 CE retail and wholesale services and, as a result, to maximize the sales and marketing potential of these services
