At MEF GEN15, WebNMS is highlighting their multi-vendor Lifecycle Service Orchestration solution for MEF-defined Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services. The WebNMS Symphony Orchestration Platform consolidates and automates the complete lifecycle of service management, enabling the efficient delivery of on-demand, elastic services.

The Symphony platform supports a wide variety of use cases. At the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) conference, WebNMS will focus on LSO, showing MEF-defined services, use cases and best practice workflows across multi-vendor, Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 networks. These capabilities are prerequisites for provider orchestration of complex services across existing CE and SDN networks, enabling the effective integration of NFV solutions.

“MEF GEN15 is a terrific venue for WebNMS to showcase our powerful solutions that support dynamic network services and streamline operations,” said Darryl Stork, regional director of WebNMS. “Our service provider customers, like Metrofibre in South Africa, are automating their existing service operations following the MEF’s LSO principles for Carrier Ethernet. The proof of concept with Omnitron and Veryx will illustrate how to chain CE and OpenStack SDN services. This movement toward service automation will have tremendous upside for IT managers.”


At MEF GEN15, gold sponsor WebNMS is exhibiting its networking product portfolio, including CE, MPLS, SDN and NFV solutions. Key activities include:

  • At the MEF GEN15 Proof of Concept Showcase, WebNMS will orchestrate a live, multi-vendor WAN and SDN-enabled data center network, built through close collaboration with industry partners Omnitron Systems, a leading provider of connectivity products, and Veryx, a global leader in telecom test and monitoring solutions. On this network, WebNMS orchestrates the fulfillment of dynamic requests for assured services through a customer portal, with automated end-to-end service provisioning and remote automated service activation and testing. The PoC will also integrate the KulCloud PRISM SDN controller that extends the service chain into an OpenStack cloud.
  • At Booth 217, WebNMS is exhibiting its complete set of networking products, including the Symphony Orchestration Platform, the first open solution to combine unified multi-vendor network management, service management applications and a flexible software framework for lifecycle automation.
  • Darryl Stork will contribute to two industry panels to discuss important trends and describe a use case by Metrofibre Networx, the founding MEF member in Africa.
    • Tuesday, November 17, at 3:15 p.m. – How Service Providers Can Achieve Competitive Differentiation by Leveraging LSO to Deliver CE 2.0 and Third Network Services
    • Wednesday, November 18, at 3:00 p.m. – Perspectives — Managing and Scaling NFV and SDN Rollouts
