Within the LSO Framework, LSO Sonata APIs address the business layer of business interactions between service providers for delivered MEF standard services, like quoting, ordering, and product inventory. They support end-to-end automation and orchestration of digital services at the LSO Sonata Interface Reference Point in the LSO Reference Architecture.
LSO Sonata APIs combine product-agnostic business API functionalities with product payloads (data schema). For example, MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet services can be orchestrated using LSO Sonata and LSO Cantata APIs for full end-to-end service automation at the business layer of Carrier Ethernet services across multiple providers within a supply chain. This combination drastically accelerates an enterprise’s ability to access off-net business locations with robust, dynamic digital services, including connectivity and cybersecurity.
The related LSO Sonata SDK and standards themselves apply to a wide range of products and services.
