MEF 3.0 SD-WAN certified service providers

In March 2020, MEF announced that Comcast Business, PCCW Global, Spectrum Enterprise and Telia Company were the first service providers in the world to achieve MEF 3.0 SD-WAN certification, demonstrating compliance with the industry’s only standard for SD-WAN managed services.
