Re: ECOMP
It does seem that the conditional comment that it's "promising to share it in open source -- if the industry responds positively to that idea," leaves some doubt as to what's really going to be shared. It will be interesting to see what happens in coming months with the ECOMP vision process.

ECOMP
It's great that somebody's come up with one generic overall framework to define all the different things that need to be controlled.  Would be great to see what it defines and how it intends to hook everything up.  The UI is going to be just as important as the API that taps into the NFV's.

Re: Exciting
I suspect it's somewhere in the middle - a lot of it is in place, but they can use the industry's help on some missing parts. 

They certainly wouldn't open source this without a good reason and seeing hte industry move forward faster on some of this is just one possibility.

Exciting
Really hope that ECOMP is ready for prime time and that T are simply looking to drive adoption in the industry.  A defacto standard (in the same way that Linux is) would really help.  

On the other hand, it could just as well be that ECOMP is in pieces and T are testing the waters to see if they could get the FOSS community to help them out.  After all, 2020 is hurtling towards them.

Re: Got to hand it to AT&T - subverting the telco norm
According to Donovan, it took 300 agile developers,  8 million lines of code and 18 months to develop. So this is something significant - and he seems  to be saying that if the feedback is clearly helpful to moving forward, they are willing to go open source.

My favorite quote from  the Q&A session: Donovan says the "secret sauce" companies add to open source - includinng AT&T - shouldn't be in buckets but in small bottles, like Tobasco sauce. Small but potent.

Got to hand it to AT&T - subverting the telco norm
Obviously this is not something that just happened, overnight... but what is impressive with AT&T's approach for the past 3 years or so is its consistency... it knows where it wanst to get to and it knows how it wanst to get there and it isn't taking its foot off the pedal.

IT may not work out but it might - either way, Bravo!
