The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) is defining Lifecycle Service Orchestration with APIs for existing network, NFV and SDN implementations enabling Agile, Assured and Orchestrated Services, Worldwide, otherwise known as “The Third Network”.

It is a characterized as a union of CE 2.0 (discussed below) and the Internet as a whole, which represents Assured QoS and Security for the former, and On-demand and Ubiquitous Access for the latter. In other words, the concept seeks to provide the best of both words.

Our research indicates it will not just be the obvious infrastructure providers and service providers that will benefit. We also see ancillary areas such as Data Center Storage and Software Defined Security as direct beneficiaries. This is because the more robust 3rd Network will engender the need for more secure storage for content, commerce, and communications-enabled applications.

This report evaluates the role of Cloud Computing relative to the emerging 3rd Network, Carrier Ethernet, CE 2.0, and Lifecycle Orchestration. This report assesses the impact of these technologies and provides forecasts for ancillary areas not addressed anywhere else. The report also includes an overview of supporting signaling technologies including SS7 for TDM networks and SIP for IP networks.
