The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) needs to crystallize LSO and the third network, Ken tells Guy Daniels. The MEF’s Lifecycle Service Orchestration inserts a layer on top of traditional carrier Ethernet to make it manageable, agile, more on-demand and more consumable through common APIs. The LSO puts a layer between the OSS/BSS and NFV orchestration, making it a ‘lighter lift” for the traditional OSS/BSS systems.
