This document includes:

SD-WAN Key Concepts – description of important components and concepts, i.e., the building blocks that are used to define and describe a MEF SD-WAN Service. 

SD-WAN Service Attributes – the enumeration and description of the information that is agreed to between the SD-WAN Subscriber and the SD-WAN Service Provider. The values of these Service Attributes are determined by agreement between the Subscriber and Service Provider, subject to constraints imposed by this standard.
