Los Angeles, Sept. 22, 2021 – MEF is a global industry association of network, cloud, and technology providers working together to empower enterprise digital transformation, has announced a comprehensive set of new APIs, services, and programs in response to significant market demand to accelerate the implementation of MEF Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) APIs.
More than 23 companies, including AT&T and Verizon, are either in production with LSO Sonata APIs or intend to be within the next nine months. Companies cite the following top benefits for implementing MEF-standardized APIs for the automation of business-to-business interactions between service providers:
“AT&T is leading the global implementation of MEF LSO Sonata APIs through our ecosystem. We’re seeing an acceleration in the number of global providers working towards a 2021 implementation and an increase in the number of providers who were actively discussing and evaluating the benefits of MEF Sonata API adoption,” said John Nolan, Vice President, Global Connections & Alliance Management at AT&T. “Standardized APIs for interoperability of business applications will vastly improve the customer experience through faster cycle times and resolving service delivery issues earlier, offering automated near real-time availability and pricing information.”
“Verizon values MEF LSO APIs because they drive end-to-end automation, resulting in improved customer experience and lower total cost of ownership,” said Aamir Hussain, Verizon Business Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer, and Chairman, MEF. “They are a great example of how Verizon Business and MEF work together to improve digital transformation for our customers and deliver on our Network as a Service strategy.”
