Abstract

The MEF introduced the MEF 48 (Service Activation Testing [SAT]) along with MEF 46 (Latching Loopback), and MEF 49 (SAT Control Protocol and PDU Formats) as a framework to help service providers with a new standardized approach to testing and troubleshooting Carrier Ethernet-based services. Collectively these standards are known as the MEF SAT Power Play. This white paper describes the portfolio of the SAT Power Play, how each element can be used either individually or collectively, and can be an indispensable resource to a service provider.
