MEF19 runs from 18-22 November at the JW Marriott LA LIVE in Los Angeles, where 46 of the world’s leading service and technology providers meet to present ground breaking demonstrations of SD-WAN, inter-provider and intra-provider service automation with LSO APIs, AI/ML, security, intent-based networking, Blockchain, Carrier Ethernet, satellite services, 5G, network slicing, IoT, private cloud, service assurance, and more.
In the first of its two PoC collaborations, Versa is partnering with NTT Communications, Netcracker, Spirent, Adva, and Silver Peak to showcase how multi-vendor SD-WAN services can be orchestrated, activated, assured and managed using zero touch provisioning and end-to-end service automation.
Powered by a unified marketplace, self-service portal and NFV-based uCPE platform, the PoC will show how MEF 70 compliant SD-WAN services from different vendors can be selected independently of the CPE hardware and seamlessly deployed with little-to-no intervention from the service provider or end-user. Through this new “digital user experience”, SD-WAN services are orchestrated, activated, assured and managed using zero touch provisioning and end-to-end service automation in alignment with MEF’s LSO framework.
In its second PoC, Versa will be demonstrating how SD-WAN services can be supported by API automation certification. Partnering with CenturyLink and Spirent, Versa will help show automated activation of MEF SD-WAN services with integrated service testing based on the SD-WAN test certification suite to provide customers with an SD-WAN service “birth certificate”.
