LSO Sonata APIs address the business-to-business layer of inter-provider buying and selling at the commercial level. Much of the work to date has focused on this critical Interface Reference Point in the LSO Reference Architecture.
LSO Sonata APIs combine product-agnostic products and services schema to support all phases of business-to-business transactions using automation APIs for the retail-wholesale ecosystem.
LSO Sonata’s latest release, “Billie,” includes support for automated business functionalities, including address validation, site query, product offering qualification, quote, product order, product inventory, and trouble ticketing for Carrier Ethernet (CE) connectivity services. Additional functions, such as billing and settlement, and support for additional payloads (e.g., Internet Access) will be available in future releases. The full release is now available to MEF members, with a subset available publicly.
MEF has introduced a portfolio of commercial and technical resources designed to support service providers throughout all stages of their LSO Sonata adoption journey.
