MEF-SDN/NFV is the first industry-wide certification that validates professionals’ knowledge, skills, and abilities in the domains of software defined networking and network functions virtualization.
MEF now offers three certifications as part of a comprehensive Professional Certification Framework. These include the MEF-SDN/NFV, MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP), and MEF Network Foundations (MEF-NF) certifications. Individuals who obtain all three of these certifications qualify for the coveted MEF Network Expert certification.
The MEF Professional Certification Framework is designed to create a global ecosystem of certified professionals with leading-edge skills required to support agile, assured, and orchestrated MEF 3.0 services for the digital economy.
Currently available and planned professional certifications will cover the concepts and skills needed to build automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, NFV, and CE. Development of these advanced networks will accelerate the worldwide transition to dynamic services that provide user- and application-directed control over network resources and service capabilities, said MEF.
