In November of 2017, MEF announced MEF 3.0, a transformation global services framework for defining, delivering, and certifying agile, assured, and orchestrated communication services across a global ecosystem of automated networks. MEF 3.0 blends sophisticated, standardized services with an emerging suite of LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration) APIs to provide an on-demand, cloud-centric experience with unprecedented user- and application-directed control over network resources and service capabilities.

Of particular interest to OCP attendees of the telco stream will be the extensive collaboration, led by MEF, ONAP, major operators and OSS vendors for the development of MEF 3.0 LSO Open APIs. These APIs were featured in the PoC showcase at the recent MEF17 event by major operators,  whereby connectivity services were instantiated across multiple ONAP domains using MEF Open APIs supported by both the operators and OSS vendors.

This session will explore the many areas and forms of collaboration occurring between MEF and open source projects, including reference implementation, proof-of-concept demonstrations and information model development. Such activities are essential for the industry to achieve the goal delivering on-demand, automated, application aware networks services across a global footprint.
