Join our Q1 Meeting!

2021 is a special year for MEF as we will celebrate our 20th anniversary!

Following our initial focus solely on Metro Ethernet, we have embarked and are executing upon the ambitious MEF mission to develop a global federation of network, cloud and technology providers in establishing dynamic, assured, and certified services that empower enterprise digital transformation. The 2021 Q1 Members Meeting will review and progress all of the committee works being executed in support of our mission and to launch new initiatives.

Committee proceedings will run Monday through Thursday, 25-28 January, wrapping up with the closing plenary on Friday the 29th.  Highlights of the week include

  • Pre-meeting New Participant Orientation 
  • 1st plenary of 2021, with presentations by MEF Chairman, President and CTO and others
  • 3 days of committee proceedings
  • Birds of a Feather session

See the column on the right for committee agenda links and a sampling of topic areas. Also read the Member Bulletin - MEF's Strategy, Initiatives & More - August 2020 for further details on ongoing work.
