MEF publishes the industry’s first SD-WAN standard

The industry’s first global standard for SD-WAN that defines SD-WAN service and its service attributes has been published. MEF members approved the new standard, SD-WAN Service Attributes and Services (MEF 70). Subsequently the MEF board of directors ratified the standard at its recent annual meeting. This standardisation process was carried out within the MEF 3.0 Global Services Framework, which forms part of initiative to define, deliver and certify a suite of carrier Ethernet, optical transport, IP, SD-WAN and security services orchestrated across automated networks using Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) APIs.
