MEF is pleased to introduce IMTC SuperOp! as part of the MEF18 global networking event, following the recent integration of IMTC into MEF. SuperOp! will be held 28 October - 2 November 2018.

IMTC SuperOp! Overview

MEF Applications Committee

MEF recently formed a new Applications Committee focused on enabling applications to dynamically interact with networks using a set of machine-to-machine APIs, thereby ensuring that application-level quality of experience, security, and performance requirements can be met by the underlying network infrastructure without human intervention.

The Applications Committee includes projects on SD-WAN and Intent-based Orchestration and incorporates the former work of IMTC, including Internet of Things, Real-Time Media SDN, SIP Interconnect, SSV, and WebRTC Interoperability).

SuperOp! is a well-established multimedia products and services interoperability testing event that draws multimedia communications equipment producers, protocol stack vendors, network infrastructure vendors, voice endpoint vendors, and other participants from around the world.

The introduction of this hands-on event into MEF18 is designed to complement the work of the MEF Applications Committee with its emphasis on application-oriented standardization, especially in the performance-critical field of real-time media services. By bringing together work on many-to-many interoperability for multimedia systems with the application-aware world of dynamic connectivity services being defined in the MEF 3.0 framework, MEF is enabling service providers and enterprises to develop real-time media applications that can rely on appropriate network performance in a fully automated and transparent fashion.

SuperOp! will be collocated with the popular MEF LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration) Hackathon, which is focused on developing LSO-, SDN-, and NFV-based solutions for MEF 3.0 services.


The goal of SuperOp! is to allow companies that manufacture multimedia communications equipment to make their products work seamlessly with equipment from other companies. Because of the diversity of equipment, protocols, and vendors, it is not practical or economical for a single organization to duplicate such large-scale connectivity in its own test lab. SuperOp! provides a unique opportunity for software developers, network engineers, and system test engineers to come together and work side to side to iteratively test and enhance the interoperability of current and future equipment and services across various networks.


Participating companies will be able to create and test performance of multimedia applications – ranging from mobile video telephony to telepresence systems - opposite other vendors’ products, over both direct LAN connections as well as over MEF 3.0 WAN connectivity services set up for the event. Technologies included in the event are SIP based video conferencing, including interworking with H.323 and WebRTC, RTM SDN, H.26x, SVC, SIP over IPv6, Telepresence/TIP, and more.
