Seven,

I think that is the intent - through automation of some operations and simplication of others (and yes, that is down the road) jobs are eliminated.

Carol.

So if you talk to an HR person, they will tell you that Opex is directly related to headcount.  So, I tend to ask this question - "Because you implented X, how many people are you laying off?"  So before we lower Opex, what job functions are no longer required.

Re: Willpower and know-how...
I think we need to measure vendor claims of "NFV" support by two things; first, have they submitted a PoC to validate their approach in the NFV process.  Second, have they met the goals of the two NFV white papers, which stress the need to improve operations, agaility, and (most of all) openness.

Re: Willpower and know-how...
The thing that most intrigued me was the focus on openess and what that is going to mean in the virutal world. It's widely discussed but defined differently, depending on the company providing the definition. This seems to be a definition tuned to the needs of the service providers for faster time to market for their services and the promise of lower opex down the road.

Re: Willpower and know-how...
Thanks, Ray!  I think that PoCs are important to the body to accelerate their timeline and also to link their work as carefully as possible to the software frameworks for deployment and virtual function authoring.  The industry needs answers on schedule, and also the right answers!  My hope is that our approval will open the way for other groups to offer PoCs and advance the work of the ISG on multiple fronts.

Willpower and know-how...
I have to say these are impresive timelines and makes me blieve that something tangible will actually happen within the timeline of the ETSI NFV ISG, which is almost half way through its pre-determined life (of two years' duration).
