About this talk
Service Activation Testing (SAT) plays an important role in MEF’s Third Network vision of delivering agile, assured, and orchestrated connectivity services. MEF 48 (SAT), MEF 46 (Latching Loopback) and MEF 49 (SAT Control Protocol and PDU Formats) specifications make up a framework for standardized testing and troubleshooting of Carrier Ethernet-based services for service providers. Collectively these specifications are known as the MEF SAT Power Play. These specifications can be used all together or individually to comprehensively test Carrier Ethernet-based services. The webinar will discuss the important relationship between MEF’s SAT specifications and the work of other standards developing organizations (SDOs), such as IETF RFC 2544 and ITU-T Y.1564. Discover the many benefits of MEF’s SAT Power Play including improved testing efficiency for retail and wholesale Ethernet service deployments, boosting customer satisfaction by reducing the number of faulty turn ups, and accelerating the interconnection process between peer operators.
An industry association of 200+ member companies, MEF is the driving force enabling agile, assured, and orchestrated communication services that empower users with the dynamic performance and security required to thrive in the digital economy.…
