Abstract:

The MEF SD-WAN Certification Test Requirements document specifies the testable requirements for the service attributes, functions and capabilities defined in the MEF SD-WAN Attributes and Service Standard (MEF 70). 

The Certification Test Requirements are the basis for development and maintenance of the MEF Authorized Certification Test Partner (ACTP) SD-WAN Certification Test Plans. 

As such, the document is an important aid to service providers and technology solution providers to prepare for successful completion of the conformance certification of their products with the MEF 70 standard. 

The Test Requirements are also intended to enable standardization of the service level agreement between the SD-WAN service provider and SD-WAN subscriber, which is crucially important for accelerating the market adoption of SD-WAN services. 

MEF 70 is the first industry standard definition of an SD-WAN service. It provides an important basis for service providers and technology solution providers to differentiate their service offerings from those of their competitors who may be loosely using the description “SD-WAN” to their customers in a new but rapidly emerging market. 

The MEF 3.0 SD-WAN Test Requirements are defined according to the MEF 70 specification and the document determines the conformance of externally visible behavior of SD-WAN services.
