The MEF is the driving force enabling Third Network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world, providing an on-demand, orchestrated, assured, and secured experience with user-directed control over network resources and cloud connectivity. Optimized for real-time traffic and integration of value-added network functions-as-a-service, Third Network services are delivered over more automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by CE 2.0, LSO, SDN, and NFV. The MEF has established a technical framework that includes architecture, information models, services, operational processes, LSO, open source implementations, and certification programs. MEF work is conducted internally and under the guidance of the MEF UNITE program in cooperation with global standards organizations and open source projects.
Through a series of presentations, this seminar will demonstrate that LSO is delivering on its promise to accelerate the implementation of agile and assured Carrier Ethernet services and to improve the operational efficiency of Service Providers. This presentation introduces MEF's new Open LSO and Open CS initiatives and discusses collaboration with ON.Lab and other Open Source projects.
Welcome - Rami Yaron, Telco Systems
This presentation will explain how LSO is the critical enabler of automated and virtualized networks built with SDN and NFV. Currently, Service Providers need LSO capabilities and supporting APIs to overcome the OSS and BSS obstacles that prevent them from realizing the full benefits of emerging SDN and NFV technologies. LSO encompasses all network domains that require coordinated inter-operator end-to-end management and control to deliver on-demand cloud connectivity services and to assure their overall quality and security as expressed in the Service Provider SLA.The LSO Reference Architecture and Framework - Rami Yaron, Telco Systems
