MEF Professional Certification Framework outlines a new and comprehensive set of skills to lead and support network transformation. This set of certifications reflects a broader view of vendor-neutral skills that are required to manage complex network and telecom solutions.

MEF, working in conjunction with other UNITE member organizations (the leading standards and technology developers today) realizes that no one network technology domain is sufficient to be thoroughly prepared. Working together with leading subject matter experts, and creating a framework that is flexible and collaborative, they are building a certification architecture for standards-based, vendor-neutral networking skills.


Essential Level

Exams include MEF Network Foundations, the vendor-neutral, concept level introduction to the world of software-driven modern networking, including a detailed introduction to SD-WAN. A great place to start!

Professional Level

Deeper dive, rigorous, practitioner level exams in domains of Carrier Ethernet (available now), SDN/NFV (available in April 10, 2018), LSO/Network Automation (Q4 of 2018), and Network Security (Q2 2019). Each exam validates knowledge, skills and abilities in the key technology domains of today’s networks.
