MEF Trumpets Progress on SD-WAN, Eyes Edge on 5G

November 20, 2019 / Matt Kapko

MEF today announced progress on MEF 3.0, including a new MEF 3.0 SD-WAN certification program, an SD-WAN certified professional program, and research into the continued exploration of a standardized managed SD-WAN service definition. The industry association, which aims to define standards for network virtualization and life-cycle services orchestration (LSO), has expanded beyond its initial focus on carrier ethernet to include SD-WAN, optical transport, IP, and security services. MEF 3.0 covers each of those network services and is working to expand adoption of its standards among software developers, IT professionals, and network operator engineers.
