Backdrop to the Los Angeles Meeting

We have had a great start to 2019 as we strive to accelerate development and worldwide adoption of MEF 3.0. Members are progressing dozens of projects and other key initiatives to drive industry transformation to dynamic services orchestrated across a global ecosystem of automated networks.

This year, MEF is sharply focused on enabling service providers to (1) transform their businesses, services, and networks, (2) federate on a global basis, and (3) certify that their service offerings comply with MEF 3.0 standards.

The Los Angeles meeting presents a timely opportunity for MEF members to join this exciting journey and take advantage of a variety of engagement opportunities.
