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

Multi-Operator Service Delivery: From Months to Minutes... - Pascal Menezes, MEF
The MEF is focused on enabling dynamic network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world, providing businesses an on-demand, cloud-connected, secure, and assured experience.

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
The LSO Reference Architecture and Framework defines the management and control layered reference architecture and the framework that characterizes the domains and management entities required to enable cooperative LSO capabilities for connectivity services. The framework also provides high level use cases describing orchestrated connectivity service behavior as well as interactions among management and control entities. The management and control reference points that characterize interactions between LSO management ecosystem components are identified in the framework. 


The Real Story Behind Multi-Operator Automation - Shahar Steiff, PCCW
As Service Providers accelerate the deployment of services, automation that spans multiple Operator domains becomes mandatory to achieve scalability that includes off-net locations.  This automation depends on standardization of Information Models, Operational Threads and Interface Profiles based on real-world use cases and service provider implementation strategies. This presentation by a leading MEF service provider member explains how MEF builds these use cases - including serviceability, ordering, performance reporting, resource provisioning and many others -  based on service provider expertise and integrates them using the latest modeling approaches to define the processes and APIs that Service Providers and Operators can use to interconnect in a fully automated fashion.
