The centerpiece of the GEN14 Exhibition area is the Proof of Concept Showcase. Following a formal submission process, six participant groups have been selected to showcase interactive Proof of Concept demonstrations of new service & technology innovations that will shape the future of global networking and fuel productivity gains for service providers and end-users. The live PoC Showcase will be the focal point of MEF GEN14, featuring leading-edge implementations of dynamic cloud-centric Carrier Ethernet services with SDN, NFV, automated provisioning, service orchestration, and other innovations. The Proof of Concept Showcase gets to the heart of true innovation. MEF GEN14 attendees can witness, first hand, collaborating implementations of what is possible in the world of service delivery to business users. We anticipate the Showcase demonstrations will be of great interest to enterprise, service provider, and other GEN14 attendees.

Showcase Participants & Themes

Allstream, Tata Communications: Demonstrate orchestration across carriers using APIs built on open MEF standards, for on-demand bandwidth. SDN extends CE 2.0 Interconnect to elastic services, accelerating availability of secure and assured cloud services everywhere.

Cyan: Demonstrate how Carrier Ethernet is enhanced by SDN and NFV, including dynamic, on-demand services with end-to-end multi-vendor control, service chaining, and multi-domain orchestration.

Amartus, Transition Networks: Rapid, agile environment to orchestrate and automate the roll-out, provisioning and operations of on-demand network and Cloud services. This environment uses an open-system and open-standards approach, CE 2.0 Ethernet demarcation devices, and virtualized NFV, SDN and Cloud technologies.

Oracle, InfoVista: Self-serve ordering and performance assurance of commercial-ready Network-as-a-Service, dynamically orchestrated and assured across the service provider and wholesale partners, integrated fully into critical business management processes, and designed for network technology abstraction.

CenturyLink, Ciena: Showcase benefits of automated orchestration of MEF services with collaboratively developed APIs related to the upcoming MEF 7.3 Information Model, interface profiles for simplified service activation and configuration, and automated API testing.

WebNMS, Omnitron Systems, VeEX: MEF CE 2.0 services orchestration over a multi-vendor network with elastic service provisioning, fault isolation, and dynamic bandwidth on demand with service activation & assurance via a cloud-based self-service Customer SLA portal.
