MEF18 Best MEF 3.0 Implementation Project

Proof of Concept Awards recognize the MEF18 Proof of Concept (PoC) demonstrations that best showcase the ability to orchestrate dynamic and assured services across automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks in accordance with the MEF 3.0 framework. More than 50 companies have participated in 19 PoCs this year.

Assured, Automated Service Orchestration Across Multiple Providers

The aim of our award-winning collaboration was to leverage MEF LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration) architecture and LSO APIs to accelerate the global adoption of assured, automated network services orchestrated across multiple provider networks. The project marks a new chapter in communications where carriers will be able to deliver agile, assured services together, as a part of the global connectivity. The PoC also included management of complex services, leveraging software defined networking (SDN) and network virtualized functions (NFV) across physical and virtual entities.

The PoC Awards winners have been selected by a judging panel of top global senior analysts from the world’s top consulting firms and research organizations.
