The seventh annual MEF 3.0 PoC Showcase at MEF20 will bring together the world's leading service and technology providers in 20 teams to present groundbreaking demonstrations of SD-WAN, inter-provider and intra-provider service automation with LSO APIs, AI/ML, security, intent-based networking, Blockchain, Carrier Ethernet, satellite services, 5G, network slicing, IoT, private cloud, service assurance, and more.

This year's submission process has been streamlined and centered around the MEF 3.0 Proof of Concept Maps, to increase exposure for your PoC.

MEF 3.0 Proof of Concept Showcase Details

Each MEF 3.0 PoC participating in the MEF20 showcase will need at least 3 participating companies. Participation is open to both members and non-Members, and all MEF 3.0 PoCs are eligible for the MEF 3.0 PoC Awards. The cost to participate is $7,500 per company per MEF 3.0 PoC ($3,500 if the company is sponsoring MEF20 at Bronze or above).

Marketing and Promotion

MEF recommends submitting your showcase proposal as soon as possible so that you can take advantage of our promotional marketing throughout the year, both via social media and email and also our press releases. Early marketing will include all approved PoCs that have finalized their PoC map (see dates to the right). All submissions should be received by 19 August with 10 September being the last day for any changes (additional participants, etc).

Submitting a MEF 3.0 Proof of Concept Proposal

To submit a proposal, please fill out the MEF 3.0 Proof of Concept Map here. MEF will format and prepare the PoC map from the information provided, and once reviewed by the participating companies, it will be made available for marketing and promotion of your PoC. 

Each participating company will need to complete the MEF 3.0 PoC Agreement and provide an high-resolution logo in EPS or Adobe Illustrator format.

If you have any questions or for help with your proposal, please contact Tom
