Backdrop to the Hong Kong Meeting

Over the past year, since the launch of MEF 3.0, MEF member companies have progressed from evaluating MEF 3.0 to developing standards and now preparing for initial implementations and accelerated adoption. This tremendous progress was evident at the recent MEF18 event, in the numerous PoCs utilizing LSO APIs and new services. Executive speakers communicated their transformation plans, aligned with and supportive of the work that MEF is leading.

MEF President Nan Chen predicts that 2019 will be characterized by the accelerated transformation of provider networks and services, increased emphasis on federation between providers, and the progression of the next generation of certified, orchestrated services as a key enabler.

The Hong Kong members meeting presents a timely opportunity for our APAC membership to join this exciting journey, with a variety of engagement opportunities.
