MEF LIFECYCLE SERVICE ORCHESTRATION (LSO) SEMINAR
ENABLING SDN AND NFV FOR MULTI-OPERATOR CONNECTIVITY SERVICES

 
 

 

 
 

 

MEF's Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) vision was introduced in early 2015 with the promise to accelerate the implementation of agile and assured connectivity services and dramatically improve operational efficiency of the world's most popular business services – Carrier Ethernet.

LSO benefits service providers by enabling the rapid deployment of new services at significant cost savings, particularly across multiple-operator networks. Also, LSO enables faster time to revenue for service providers with new service roll-outs that take minutes rather than months. LSO supports traditional WAN technologies working in conjunction with Software-defined networks and virtualized functions.

Service providers are moving to an on-demand, cloud-centric model for delivering enterprise connectivity services while leveraging a virtualized infrastructure and LSO promised to be a key enabler of this goal. This seminar provides a progress report on the numerous industry developments, involving many SDOs, fora and Open Source projects, under the leadership of MEF, to make the LSO vision a reality.

Introduction to MEF and presentation of seminar agenda

11:30

Lifecycle Service Orchestration – Year 1

Rami Yaron | Co-Chair, Global Marketing Committee | MEF

VP, Strategy & Business Development | Telco Systems

 
 

 

An overview of the MEF's Third Network Vision and why network operators are embracing LSO to enable the delivery of dynamic services over more automated, interconnected networks.

Drawing upon survey feedback from service providers and 3rd party industry research, we will benchmark the state of service providers in terms of their strategies and plans for evolving data service portfolios toward more dynamic solutions and explore the key challenges they face in realizing their goals. We will explain how LSO can be applied to overcome operational support system (OSS) challenges and open up new revenue opportunities as they transition to SDN/NFV-enabled networks.

 

11:50

The LSO Reference Architecture and Framework

Yoav Cohen | Standards Specialist | RAD Data Communications

 
 

 

The LSO Reference Architecture and Framework defines the management and control layered reference architecture and the framework that characterizes the domains and management entities required to enable cooperative LSO capabilities for connectivity services.

The framework also provides high level use cases describing orchestrated connectivity service behavior as well as interactions among management and control entities. The management and control reference points that characterize interactions between LSO management ecosystem components are identified in the framework.

 

12:10

PANEL – LSO within Open Source Projects

Johannes Weingart | D-A-CH Marketing Co-Chair | MEF

Principal Solution Architect | Brocade

 
 

 

Open Source projects, industry standards organizations and associations, service providers, hardware and software solution developers – these stakeholders and more, need to collaborate ever more closely in order to realize the vision of agile, assured and orchestrated networks.

This discussion panel looks specifically at LSO initiatives within Open Source organizations that are in progress or planned.

PANEL – APIs for LSO and Network Automation

Abel Tong | Sr. Director of Solutions Marketing | Ciena

Co-Chair, SDN WG | MEF

 
 

 

Open Source APIs are at the heart of LSO.  The first part of the session will describe the different MEF projects with regards to software development and APIs. Such projects include YANG SOAM model, LSO Reference Architecture, Service Configuration and Activation APIs (REST/JSON).

It will be followed by a discussion review of the state of API definition and availability and provide an update on inter-organizational collaboration with regards to LSO APIs.

PANEL – Multi-Operator LSO: Delivering End-to-End Connectivity Via Orchestration

Johan Witters | Co-Chair, EMEA Marketing | MEF

IP business management & consulting | Alcatel-Lucent

 
 

 

Single operator implementation of dynamic services will soon be the norm.  What about the multi-domain/multi-operator environment challenge?

This discussion panel will provide insights on the state of end-to-end connectivity among operators for dynamic connectivity services, the challenges of delivering multi-operator services and what needs to happen to make this a reality.
