MEF Third Network vision and strategy

25 Nov 2014

This white paper describes the MEF vision for the evolution and transformation of network connectivity services and the networks used to deliver them.

The MEF refers to this as the "Third Network" which combines the on-demand agility and ubiquity of the internet with the performance and security assurances of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0).

The Third Network will also enable services between not only physical service endpoints used today, such as Ethernet ports (UNIs), but also virtual service endpoints running on a blade server in the cloud to connect to Virtual Machines (VMs) or Virtual Network Function (VNFs).
