Re: Virtualization: Network Design & Infrastructure
NFV's control plane might be centralized _for a particular provider_. A carrier like AT&T, for example, might want to centrally manage the deployment of different middlebox functions (billing, firewalling, WAN optimization, etc.).

I don't think we'll see centralization _across_ carriers anytime soon, but certainly within any single carrier, that's already happening.
