This two-day course will provide you with an overview of MEF’s Software-Driven Network Vision and the important technologies that contribute towards this vision. It also assists in preparing for the MEF Network Foundations Professional Certification Exam that validates concept-level understanding of key Network terms, processes, and elements.

A transformation in data communications networks accelerates network operators’ abilities to deliver self-service, on-demand services over interconnected, multi-operator networks. The MEF’s Software-Driven Network Vision embodies this transformation by combining the on-demand agility and ubiquity of the Internet with the performance and security assurances of Carrier Ethernet Services.

Based on Network as a Service (NaaS) principles, the goal is to enable agile networks that deliver assured connectivity services orchestrated across network domains between physical or virtual service endpoints.
