Backdrop to the Edinburgh Meeting

We are excited to host our Q2/20 Members Meeting in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, UK!

Members are progressing dozens of projects and other key initiatives to drive industry transformation to dynamic and assured services orchestrated across a global federation of automated networks.

MEF is sharply focused on enabling service providers to (1) innovate with highly synergized overlay and underlay network services, (2) accelerate the rollout of MEF 3.0 certified services powered by certified technologies and professionals, and (3) federate with increased implementation of inter-provider LSO Sonata APIs worldwide.

The Edinburgh meeting presents a timely opportunity for our EMEA-based and other MEF members to join this exciting journey and take advantage of a variety of engagement opportunities in MEF.
