Automating the Global Ecosystem

2023 is shaping up as a year of accelerated adoption of MEF standards enabling secure, dynamic services across a global ecosystem of automated networks. More than 115 service providers worldwide are now in some stage of the adoption lifecycle for LSO Sonata business APIs  - up 130% year/year.

MEF continues to progress valuable work on LSO operational APIs with the expectation of first implementations this year. And the recent release of our first SASE services and Zero Trust framework standards sets the stage for an exciting new chapter for MEF as we evolve to meet the demanding needs of enterprise digital transformation.
