The Standard of Excellence and Recognition in Software-Driven Networking

MEF Network Master

MEF recognizes the IT professionals who not only earn the coveted MEF Network Expert designation in the MEF Professional Certification Framework, but who have also earned a vendor specific set of certifications in vendor networking as well. For those who persevere and earn MEF Network Expert and an approved vendor-specific set of credentials, we award the designation of MEF NETWORK MASTER. We look forwarding to honoring these individuals in significant ways in the near future.


What are the Requirements of MEF Network Master?
The requirements are simple: pass all three of the MEF Professional Certification exams (MEF Network Foundations (MEF-NF), MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP), and the brand-new MEF SDN/NFV Certified Professional (MEF-SDN/NFV), and who maintain their active exam status. There will be more ways to attain MEF Network Expert with the release of future exams (check out our exam Framework, below, to see our ambitious plans), and they happen, we’ll pass that information along.

Additionally, IT Professionals have to have earned a certification designation (one that is current and active, not a relic, but one that reflects current knowledge, skills and abilities) in vendor-specific networking technology as well. A complete list of such vendor certifications is being developed at this time, but the aim is to include such “sets” of certifications from Cisco, Juniper, HP, NEC, and any other vendors of networking gear. MEF is putting together an approval process if you are a vendor and what to get your particular “stack” of credentials approved for consideration. Our goal is to be inclusive, to recognize current achievement, and to reflect the way that networking professionals rely upon both vendor-specific and vendor-neutral certification for validating their networking knowledge, skills, and abilities.

What is the Cost of the MEF Network Expert?
Like our MEF Network Expert designation, MEF recognizes the effort that has already been expended (hard study, on-the-job training and experience, taking and passing exams, keeping your skills sharp and up-to-date, starting at the beginning and working your way up in technology achievement), and so there will never be an additional charge to be a MEF Network Master—period. All we expect is that you keep your certifications up to date, as interpreted by the particular vendor certification in which you also participate.

What are the entitlements and rewards associated with the MEF Network Master designation?
Here’s what the MEF Network Expert receives (and we are just getting started!):

  • A beautiful certificate, suitable for framing proudly in your office or posting online, honoring your achievement.
  • A special numeric designation for your certificate, lowest to highest, so everyone will know what a pathfinding champion you have been. When that number hits the thousands, all will know that you led the vanguard in software-driven network certifications.
  • Special registration in MEF’s Certification Honors Registry, where all of these designations will be listed online (what a job endorsement).
  • A signed letter from MEF management to your manager in honor of your accomplishment, and a notice given to the vendor organization letting them know of your achievement
  • A custom-designed golf shirt letting the world know of your unique accomplishment
  • Premier access in MEF’s ProCERT community website (coming soon) , and an opportunity to serve in leadership roles in community activities.
  • And more to come - keep checking back to see other entitlements, discounts, and benefits will accrue to all of those who proudly wear the designation "MEF Network Master".

The MEF Professional Certification Framework (see image below) indicates there are separate levels of the MEF Network Expert and MEF Network Master designations. Tell me more!

We know that some networking experts love to learn and want to excel in their career. As MEF makes new certifications, or recognizes certifications in the Framework from other organizations, there will be ways to indicate progress. When a MEF Network Experts has additional certifications to the level of “Expert 3” and has a vendor-specific collection of certifications, we move up to the highest level—the MEF Network Master. Imagine the honor—and the opportunities—associated with that designation.
