Abstract

MEF’s LSO Reference Architecture guides agile development of standardized LSO APIs that enable end-to-end automation of MEF 3.0 services across multiple providers and over multiple network technology domains (e.g., Optical Transport, CE, IP, 5G, etc.). With LSO, service providers are able to evolve from a silo-structured BSS/OSS approach towards flexible orchestration that helps maximize return on SDN and NFV investments. In addition, the combination of standardized MEF 3.0 services and LSO APIs enables service providers to transition from operating as independent islands to being integral players in a worldwide federation of cloud-like networks supporting dynamic services across multiple providers. MEF is progressing initiatives for multiple LSO interface reference points that facilitate not only service provider transformation and federation, but will also extend service orchestration to 5G mobile networks, cloud players, and enterprise customers for a seamless on-demand, application-aware networking experience.
