Re: soft?
@Ariella,

That's only a good thing if I thought right too. But I'll agree that we're both correct!

Re: soft?
@kq4ym I did think of the association with "software," but I didn't see how that made it a distinguishing quality like agile.

Re: soft?
@Ariella,

I think that means low on CapEx. Which leads to the lack of flexibility, your point.

Re: soft?
Good question, just what did he mean by "soft?" The telcoms will certainly have to be very flexible and innovative to keep up with all the new systems. Hardware will take a back seat to lots of new software? Maybe that's the "soft?"

soft?
"The ecosystem will evolve. The TEM [telecom equipment manufacturer] will still exist, but it has to walk the path to make sure it is soft and agile enough," according to Chih-Lin I,"

In this context, is "soft" a synonym for flexible, or does it mean something else?
