Who are Cyan's main competitor in orchestration?
Huawei announced their NetMatrix platform, anyone else claims to have?

Re: Colt and Cyan - is this a Dream Team?
Funny that there is this much hype over "multi-vendor orchestration from a single SDN (sic) controller" when others in the industry are much further ahead with this in terms of multiplicity of vendors supported...

Re: Colt and Cyan - is this a Dream Team?
It is always interesting to see what some of the break-out-of-the-pack carriers do and I'd count Colt in that bunch. 

And I think this move also addresses something raised at our recent Ethernet and SDN Conference - the need of service providers to address their near-term challenges to get provisioning done faster and their networks to operate more efficiently before they get to full-blown SDN.

Colt and Cyan - is this a Dream Team?
All eyes recently have been on AT&T's Supplier Domain 2.0 initiative and Telefonica's virtual CPE trial in Brazil as examples of how quickly operators will move to SDN and NFV. But over a year ago, Heavy Reading wrote about Colt virtualizing CPE and now Colt is trumping the market again with the eye-catching selection of Cyan  - another endorsement for that company's interesting Blue Planet platform. Colt is not the only network operator whose rapid transformation is worth watching on this side of the pond - Interoute and exponential-e are also players in the hyper-competitive UK Ethernet services market with momentum-gaining enterprise cloud strategies which they are underpinning with SDN and NFV. It will be interesting to see how larger players will respond if Colt succeeds in establishing a new benchmark for the rapid delivery of network services.
