MEF Releases Two Call for Comment Ballots for Sonata and Cantata LSO APIs

Bringing together software architects and developers, network engineers, and R&D groups from the IT departments of service providers, network vendors, and network management solutions’ suppliers, MEF’s Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) Committee aims to enhance and automate the delivery of end-to-end connectivity services to customers. 

On May 14th, the committee, comprised of industry professionals and co-chaired by Michael Kearns, Amartus’ Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, released two Call for Comment Ballots for API and Developer Guide documents. They assist developers in the implementation of  the Site Retrieval and Address Management functions of:

  • LSO Cantata, which enables the interaction between the customer domain application and service provider’s business applications.
  • LSO Sonata that manages interactions between two service providers and addresses all phases of the service lifecycle, from pre-ordering and ordering, through product inventory, to trouble-ticketing and billing.

Amartus contributes to MEF APIs

Amartus is a proud contributor to these and other LSO APIs, with Amartus’ Solution Architect Michał Łączyński managing the LSO Developer Community activities and editing Developer Guides for all abovementioned functions, and Amartus’ Principal Architect Bartosz Michalik cooperating with peers from other companies on developing the standards.

The LSO Developer Community is open to all MEF member organizations, and it is free of charge. All interested professionals are encouraged to contribute by voting and providing feedback, even if they did not participate in the project.

This is a unique opportunity to get the inside scoop on the industry standardization and directly influence the agreed standards, network with other experts, and build expertise. Actively engaging in the LSO standards definition and ballots benefits member organizations by strengthening their ability to compete in the modern network and connectivity market.
