Re: Singing the same song
I think that is the concern of the carrieres in the EYTSI NFV group - before they actually press ahead with the introduction of NFV they want to be sure they're not giving  themselves another headache that comes with unfulfilled promises. NOthing is guaranteed, of course, but they seem to be more wary of the pitfalls and have taken control of the process more than with other tech developments.

FYI - my hairstyle hasn't changed in 30 years...

Re: Singing the same song
And are we certain carriers won't be saying that about NFV in 3 years? I remember when IMS was absolutely a must-have for 4G. Times change, I suppose, accronyms change, hairstyles change...

Re: Singing the same song
The stipulation of 4G without IMS and the chatty nature of IMS compared to SOA are my only hesitation with IMS.  With NFV, we have similar drivers to IMS; the ability to utilize BSS data in addition to OSS and Feature parameters from vendor products (video, voice, data) in convergence.  So I agree with all three of you because of the condition Telstra puts on 4G vs LTE.  If the carriers continue to define service objects based on vendor feature parameters, we can do without IMS.

Re: Singing the same song
I agree with you Carol. Additionally, one could probably argue that there will be some confluence of IMS and NFV in reality.  Given that NFV allows for virtualization, it could easily take part within the IMS scheme.

Re: Singing the same song
That's not the way I remember it -- many of the same drivers were there but there wasn't the same sense of urgency around IMS.

Re: Singing the same song
What were people saying in the early days of IMS? Surely, many of them said at the time that it was invevitable, unlike, maybe ISDN? Or some other technology migration from the 1990s that didn't play out as hoped?

Singing the same song
Every network operator with whom I've discussed NFV says the same thing - is anyone singing a different song, or maybe this same one but a little offkey?
