Definition of insanity?
I don't remember SDN ever being characterized as "crazy" -- even when Heavy Reading started tracking it in 2012, before the predicted Mayan apocalypse.

Re: Definition of insanity?
Crazy  might be the wrong word, but I do think SDN has picked up its pace significantly, as Mitch notes. People were certainly considering it mostly hype back in 2012, even if the big brains at Heavy Reading had already caught on. 

I think the major leadership in telecom always thought this was something that would happen but what Mitch is noticing is a muuch more rapid pace than many expected. And I'd attribute that, as he does, to some very strong-minded individuals forging ahead, leading key players forward in the process. 


That and the threat of extinction.

Re: Definition of insanity?
Right -- a headline like "SDN Moves From Theory to Reality" would result in fewer clicks, most likely.

Re: Definition of insanity?
Heavy Reading is to be credited for its realization that SDN was the coming big thing. And others shared that vision too.

But most of the people I encountered in misty past of February-March 2014 considered SDN to be a good idea, sure, but not really practical.

Re: Definition of insanity?
here is a query about standardization or Inter-operability beteen different SDN vendors. Do service providers will define their own solution or follow the industry suit. would it not be a chaos with many different options for the same problem? what FCC role will be to open up the market? what is level of skill-set avilable and what our schools are teaching graduates to cope with skill shortage.?
