New standard will help facilitate global market adoption of SD-WAN services

Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. has announced that its SD-WAN-as-a-Service (SD-WANaaS) offering complies with the recently published MEF SD-WAN Service Attributes and Services standard (MEF 70), the company said.

The full-featured, managed SD-WAN service from Fujitsu provides all the capabilities described in the MEF 70 standard, delivering a turnkey SD-WAN solution with no upfront costs and simplified service delivery using a pay-as-you-go subscription-based model.

MEF 70 is the industry´s first SD-WAN service standard that defines the fundamental capabilities, terminology, architectural constructs, and application classification criteria for application-aware, policy-driven, over-the-top (OTT) virtual network services. As an incubator of MEF´s SD-WAN work and an SD-WAN service provider, Fujitsu made significant contributions to the new MEF 70 SD-WAN service standard to ensure that it addresses practical, real-world customer requirements and use cases.

As applications increasingly migrate to multiple clouds and virtual private clouds, enterprises and government agencies are turning to SD-WAN as a critical digital service that enables and accelerates their multi-cloud deployments. Communication service providers (CSPs), managed service providers (MSPs), digital service provider (DSPs) and broadband providers are realizing the transformative nature of SD-WAN to facilitate their customers´ digital transformation while creating new revenue streams.
