Nan Chen, President, MEF and CENX
Whereas the first network could be described as the Internet, a consumer-based best-effort approach, and the second network is business-focused and based on Carrier Ethernet 2.0 or MPLS, then the Third Network combines the best of both with Internet-like agility and ubiquity plus CE-like performance and security. That's the vision from the MEF, which was first articulated a year ago. Since then, the MEF has been encouraged by the response from industry, and is now working with other standards groups and the open source community to realise the full potential of the Third Network.
