Coriant, MEF advance LSO service orchestration standards

Coriant, a global supplier of open, disruptive, and hyperscale networking solutions for service providers and web-scale Internet operators, has announced it has collaborated with the MEF in the development of two newly published specifications that advance the orchestration of MEF 3.0 connectivity services over multiple technology domains, the company said.

The new standards — the Network Resource Management: Information Model (MEF 59) and Network Resource Provisioning: Interface Profile Specification (MEF 60) –were developed within MEF´s LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration) Reference Architecture that has been embraced by service and technology suppliers worldwide. Coriant is among the contributors to both standards.

The MEF LSO Reference Architecture (RA) guides agile development of the models, processes, tools, and APIs that enable orchestration of MEF 3.0 services (e.g., Layer 1, Carrier Ethernet, IP, and SD-WAN) across multiple providers and over multiple network technology. The LSO RA extends the traditional MEF scope concerning service modeling to cover a range of operational, orchestration, and network management behaviors, including SDN and NFV paradigms.
