MEF '19

MEF19 focuses on accelerating the industry transition to dynamic, assured, and certified services across a global federation of automated networks.


  • Emerging cloud-centric “MEF 3.0” services provide an on-demand experience with user- and application-directed control over network resources and service capabilities.
  • These services are orchestrated across automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by LSO, SDN, and NFV.

MEF19's action-oriented program will help service providers on their journey to transform their businesses, services, and networks; federate on a global basis; and certify that their services perform at the highest levels.


  • The program builds upon – but is not limited to – the MEF 3.0 transformational global services framework, which is widely supported by leading service providers, technology vendors, open source projects, and standards organizations who are collaborating to accelerate industry transformation.
