Re: Welcoming the BBF Effort on NFV clarkede, that is an encouraging endorsement.  It appears that the BBF can provide the organization, platform, and structure to align, engage, and integrate the players, products, and services.  If so, they will be a truly valuable asset.  Big challenge, but it appears they are successfully filling that role.

Wow. I didn't realize there were that many industry groups on SDN/NFV... One ring to rule them all?

Welcoming the BBF Effort on NFV The Broadband Forum has made a hugely valuable contribution to the creation and evolution of interoperable broadband access technology over the years. The ETSI NFV ISG leadership engaged the BBF leadership very early on to energize collaboration and application of their expertise to the access-related NFV use cases. Their effort to adapt their organisation and skills to this new world is welcomed. They are well placed to help the industry develop the abstractions needed to successfuly apply virtualization in the fixed-access space.

Tackling the perception challenge The industry is a better place with the Broadband Forum in it, I think.

IT faces a big challenge, though. I know it has already been working to adapt itself to the changing needs of its operator members -- but can it persuade the whole industry and cloud community that it has what it takes to adapt quickly and keep up with the rapid pace of developments that happen in open source?

I hope it can. We will all soon find out.
