Michael Kearns reappointed as MEF LSO Committee co-chair
The MEF Committees are working groups of members focused on a particular area of MEF expertise. Currently, there are 4 Committees within the MEF structure:
- Digital Services Committee – leading the MEF services standards work, including underlay connectivity services and overlay services.
- LSO Committee – leading the MEF LSO API standards work, including East-West and North-South APIs and modeling.
- Test & Certification Committee – leading the MEF certification standards work, including both company-based certifications for services and technology as well as the professional certifications program
- Commercial and Business Committee – leading the work of MEF to enable new revenue streams, improve operational efficiencies, and better customer experience through automation and streamlining of inter-provider activities.
Each of those Committees is overseen by 3 chairs, appointed by MEF Board of Directors for a one-year term.
“Please join me in congratulating both the new and returning chairs, as we look forward to the exciting year ahead. I would also like to thank those chairs who served previously for their significant contributions!” said Nan Chen, President at MEF, in a MEF announcement on co-chair appointments for 2021-2022.
“The MEF LSO Committee made great progress last year. However, there is plenty of work to do, including scaling the adoption of MEF standards to build a rich, automated, global federation of Providers. I look forward to working with fellow LSO committee co-chair and wider MEF community to help make this happen,” commented Michael Kearns, Co-founder & Chief Strategy Officer at Amartus.
