Re: How does this relate to Google's models?
Tom et al...  As much as I agree on the value proposition of both SDN and NFV I cannot imagine rapid deployment in the service provider market.  A few reasons.

1. Massive installed base (10's of millions of fixed end points and 100's of millions of mobile end points.)

2. Fully embedded legacy BSS/OSS systems that are complex and are "not broken"

2b.  They cannot be "ripped and replaced"

3. The have the FCC looking over their shoulder at every move.

4. The have shareholders who demand quarterly results.

 

This said I don't make it a habit of betting against you Tom.  Good luck with this initiative. I'd be happy to assist.

Sam, it's not clear they aren't. As I noted in a couple of stories last week and in today's blog, they are pushing for an open soure approach to NFV's MANO layer, with the Linux Foundation.

Re: How does this relate to Google's models?
While Tom's initiative is to be lauded, I'm suprised that carriers aren't taking the lead here, liike they have with NFV...

Re: How does this relate to Google's models?
The goal of ExperiaSphere is to integrate SDN models into cloud and NFV services more generally than current approaches do.  We can make SDN do Ethernet and IP services and use both of these in the cloud and with NFV, but SDN could support completely new forwarding models, which I think Google's approach could produce.  In ExperiaSphere, the "output" in a service sense of an SDN is a "Service Model".  As you said, though, Carol, ExperiaSphere focuses on integrating these Service Models into a deployment and management framework and Google focuses on how they are created at the network level.

Re: How does this relate to Google's models?
Interesting question, Mari. I think this is more focused on the network managements side, while Google was more addressing the actual network architecture. But the two things don't exist separately in a vacuum.

Carol- How does this related to the SDN models Google just released?

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
