Pitt’s mandate is to evangelize the MEF Third Network vision and technical program, harness SDNFV in the LSO (Lifecycle Services Orchestration) framework and open APIs, and expand the MEF community and ecosystem.
“Dan is a pioneer of the software-defined networking industry and has played a pivotal role in the evolution of SDN from concept to adoption,” said Nan Chen, president of MEF. “We are honored to welcome Dan to the MEF leadership team as we lead the transformation to agile, assured, and orchestrated network services on a global scale.”
“MEF has a critical mass of more than 200 members, including 130+ service providers, and an astonishing track record of spearheading the creation of an $80+ billion market of new services and technologies,” added Pitt. “Significantly, MEF members’ core competency of services, operations, and orchestration makes the organization the ideal vehicle to deliver real-world, global deployment of SDNFV and LSO. I am thrilled to be part of the innovative team MEF continues to build.”
