It wasn't all botnets and Heartbleed at Light Reading's Mobile Network Security Show in London on Wednesday. There were some human stories, too.

One of the speakers, Mike Bursell, currently senior architect of networking at Citrix Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS), revealed from the stage that he will leave that job for a new gig in a couple of weeks.

After the chat, Bursell revealed to Light Reading that he is taking up a similar role at Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC). He said that he was still ironing out final details about his role at the company, but that he will be working as an "NFV architect" there.

He will work with Sean Varley, director of planning and strategic marketing for Intel's SDN division. Varley has written before on Intel's work on the bare metal switch with the Open Compute Project.

Bursell has long worked on the XenServer project at Citrix. He wrote a blog post about taking XenServer open source last year. (See New Product Recap: September 2011.)

How far along?
Anyone know how far Intel has progessed with the raw switch concept so far?

The world of virtualization is struggling to wrench itself away from the claws of vendor lock-in, which runs counter to everything that NFV stands for.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
