Re: Back to specialized HW i thought this was a really interesting announcement, that go buried at MWC. I'd like to hear what some service providers think of it.

Re: Back to specialized HW Indeed, as virtualization takes off and cheap whiteboxing becomes more attractive, there seems to be less incentive to make commoditized hardware last.

Re: Back to specialized HW I think disruption in the hardware lifecycle market is a huge opportunity. Many vendors don't want to change the status quo, however, because there hasn't really be a good (and profitable) alternative. Now maybe there is. We'll see.

Back to specialized HW So as much as people seem to want to move away from customized hardware solutions, it appears we are going to end up migrating to specialized hardware and infrastructure to support NFV.  Generic Intel Xeon CPUs do not fit with every application, especially where packet processing is needed, and they are relatively inefficient.   There is a reason why we moved away from CPU software based switching (like the old Cisco 7200) onto dedicated hardware based platforms.
