The role of Open APIs in achieving automation both within and between operator domains

Daniel Bar-Lev | Director, Office of the CTO | MEF

 

 

MEF recently launched the first release of its LSO Sonata set of APIs and underlying standards for pre-order and ordering of wholesale connectivity services by one operator from another. LSO Sonata is one of seven reference points in MEF's Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) architecture defined in the standard MEF 55. This session will explain how service providers are collaborating to standardize these inter-domain interfaces in order to enable them to scale their increasingly agile WAN-based services to be supported by hundreds of wholesale partners, and how the same approach is being used for intra-domain automation in the era of SDN and NFV.
