Failing the 18 wheeler test? Hardly a shocker, Iain.  You can't become a software company just by saying that you are one. I imagine that today we're seeing a lot of [legacy] monolithic software simply ported to run on virtual machines.  In most if not all cases that will still have underlying hardware dependencies and the software is nothing like "cloud-native" or capable of delivering the benefits that microservices promise.  It's good to see the larger operators starting to publicly question these limitations.  Now they need to follow through.  The industry won't realize the true benefits of NFV if the large carriers continue to think  that their traditional suppliers will get them there in a timely fashion - especially as those vendors continue to ship them "software" on 18 wheelers.
