Do you see a need to back up your data centers across regions, or is reliability acceptable in a closer back-up architecture (say within 100 km) to minimize latency?

Light Beer

Do you see value in deploying a distributed SDN controller, as envisioned by ONOS, versus separate peer controllers in different domains?

Light Beer

Thanks, Jeff and Kelsey for a great session.

Light Beer

Network Operators need to rethink their strategies

Light Beer

Yes the industry is definately trialling NFV in their environments!

Light Beer

Thanks Jeff on the overview. Well done.

 

Light Beer

At AT&T, Network Transformation and All IP project has been underway for several years.  Agressively moving into SDN and NFV world.  

 

Light Beer

I was a marketin strategy manager with Alcatel-Lucent from 2006-10.  Back then Alca-Lu started educating service providers tabout migrating their networks to open architecture, and precursors to SDN/NFV.  Also introduced the potential of mobile apps and IOT to provide new channels of monetization.  Nice to see that the conversation has become more urgent and more real.  

 

Light Beer

weather is overcast and waiting for monsoon afternoon rain.  

 

Light Beer

Service Providers need to step up and rethink their entire business, competitors, customer mix, and future threats.

Light Beer

Great presentation, thank you!

Light Beer

I wish to understand more about the migration concern from DC to CORD. I look forward to your next lecture. 

Light Beer

NFV for sure but with the careful planning for SLA.

Light Beer

YES, all companies are moving toward NFV.

Light Beer

Sunny California!

nice presentation

 

Light Beer

Thank you very much for the invite!

Light Beer

Thanks for a great class today. Learned a lot!

Lightning

you are spot on with that comment. 

Light Beer

Thanks @Jeff/jab we appreciate you answering these questions! Thanks again for the excellent presentation!

Blogger

I apologize if I missed any chat questions, I've tried to scroll thru the comments and catch all the ?'s.  Thank you for attending.

Blogger

jayakd0 you are spot on with that comment. 

Blogger

Some solutions offered promise connectivity to the SP cloud via PC (x86/Intel microprocessor).  Pros and cons to that approach but certainly worth investigating further

Blogger

@xcbpm In my view there is an awareness issue regarding security. But hearing the major security incidents which have wiped off significant earnings of coprorations, hope everyone will realise the value of security through automated monitoring, analyics and healing at various points in the network!

Light Sabre

@Jeff/jab Excellent analogy!

Blogger

To wrap up my thought on use cases, a favorite analogy is that if Henry Ford focused only on what current needs were at the time (ie use cases), he would have spent his career building a better horse and buggy.    Initial use cases will spur new ideas and other applications

 

Blogger

@jeff This is regarding my original question about NID. I interface with a number of NID providers and how they are redesigning the NIDs for NFV/SDN. I don't see a physical device at demarcation disappearing. If there is no demarction at teh customer edge, then which device of customer's would the cloud connect to?

Light Beer

Vritualized CPE concept shifts some or most of the network functions/services from purpose built CPE to the cloud. Therefore avoiding upgrading of the CPE or truckrolls. CPEs today already offer DDOS, Firewalls, etc. Moving these to cloud is doesn't make it new service. More sophisticaed security service - yes maybe. Are customers willing to pay for more security? Other than security what else new can NFV/SDN offer?

Light Beer

@Jeff/jab3241 Thanks so much for presenting today, what a great session to start our Telco Data Center module!

Blogger

Thanks Jeff for your slides, will listen to your talk offline as some of us had audio streaming/synchronisation problem..have a great day!

Light Sabre

Thanks @Jeff (@jab3241)!

Blogger

Ah, refreshed again and I just got audio in chrome! Thanks everyone!

Light Beer

to the question of Edge DC, I think the IoT Big Data analytics would drive the need to house functionality closer to the edge

Blogger

There are a number of use cases being fleshed out including bandwidth on demand (BoD), bandwidth calendaring, virtual CPE, layered services on top of that (DDOS protection, firewall, etc).    And most likely a number of use cases that we have not thought about yet

 

Blogger

@xcbpm Security is one such new service, vitualised CPE another, hope Jeff will add more to our understanding of new services!

Light Sabre

thank you for the presentation!

Light Beer

Thanks Very much Jeff & Kelsey for the presentation; It was interesting hearing it...

Light Beer

Thanks. Great presentation.

Light Beer

Thank all of you, have a nice day

Light Sabre

Thanks looking forward to hearing the archive.

Light Beer

thank you ..great seminar

@Jeff Listener Q: I understand the opex/capex reduction case for SDN/NFV. But what about the revenue side? What new services can SDN/NFV enable that will generate more or new revenues for carrier/SP?

Blogger

What is the potential of "edge DCs" especially for UHD broadcasts and Big Data analytics for IoT?

Light Sabre

@jayakd0 - I understand the service velocity argument but I see that as a opex/capex argument. Granting that there is incremental revenue due to faster service deployment, I see that as only incremental revenue. Not revenue from new services. Is there a set of services that SDN/NFV can enable that are not depoyed today? Where is the new revenue coming from, if any.

Light Beer

Thanks Jeff appreciate you taking the time to help us out

 

Light Beer

Minutes does sound much better that waiting weeks.

Light Beer

our SDN will stay a while longer

Light Beer

@xcbom, I look at SDN/NFV as a new paradigm which enables services to be launched in minutes compared to many weeks traditionally for a Telco. So revenue loss can be avoided at the same time, it enables better experimentation of new and innovative services on production networks for quick roll outs!

Light Sabre

Not considering NFV

Light Beer

Hi Jeff, do you see NFV being fully deployed at a telco or a hybrid buid? I feel that network core would still be dedicated hardware for faster switching

Light Beer

@Redacre_Solutions-I agree with @BLeung070 - Verizon is in the press along with AT&T in moving to SDN - as I understand it Verizon has the leader position currently with SDN with trials and implementation with end user customers

Light Beer
Not considering Nov at this time
Light Beer

NFV is in plans

Light Beer

I understand the opex/capex reduction case for SDN/NFV. But what about the revenue side? What new services can SDN/NFV enable that will generate more or new revenues for carrier/SP?

 

Light Beer

@BLeung070 Why do you think Verizon will be the first?

 

Light Beer

Currenlty, using NFV

Currently considering
Light Beer

Yes.  Active in the implementation.

 

Light Beer

Trialing and testing NFV

Light Beer

Listener poll: Is your organization: Actively implementing NFV? Trialing or testing NFV? Considering NFV? Or not considering NFV?

 

Blogger

I think all major service providers will have SDN fully deployed-- will be Verizon is the 1st one .

 

Light Beer

Reviewing options, still.

Light Beer

Considering NFV

Light Sabre

I work for Ciena and we are a global leader in SDN/NFV software.

Light Beer

We are implementing NFV and also testing in some markets

Light Beer

Yes - Actively implementing NFV

 

Light Beer

On the southbound side, did you consider NetConf/Yang as well (in addition to OpenFlow)?

Light Beer

Maybe Jeff could also address the environmental impact of NFV???

Light Beer

I can't hear, but I still wanted to post a question. How will job functions change (or expand) in a virtualized data center?

Light Beer

When do you think all major service providers will have SDN fully deployed? - Who will be first? Verizon / ATT? By when?

 

Light Beer

@linkedin56268 

OpenFlow® is the first standard communications interface defined between the control and forwarding layers of an SDN architecture. OpenFlow® allows direct access to and manipulation of the forwarding plane of network devices such as switches and routers, both physical and virtual (hypervisor-based).

 

Light Beer

Great questions everyone! Coming up on time for our 2nd listener question shortly, get your questions in

Blogger

Good afternoon Jeff.  Were you working on SDN and NFV efforts at Sprint? - If someone could type Jeff's reponse via the chat because I don't have audio.

Light Beer

what is OpenFflow ?

 

Light Beer

What will replace NID? there needs to be a demarcation device to enable services?

 

Light Beer

Good afternoon Jeff.  Were you working on SDN and NFV efforts at Sprint?

 

Light Beer

Would SDN or NFV always be implemented togather to take full benefits ?

Blogger

I'll repeat my question from last night for convenience's sake: QUESTION: It seems to me that the more virtualized a network, the more complex the control plane has to be in real terms, to manage all that dispersed hardware, no?

Light Beer

apologies for the audio problems everyone -- the archive will be available immediately after the show.

Lightning

I'm glad I left my question to the speaker on the board last night!

Light Beer

no audio IE 11

Light Beer

Wouldnt it be better to use ONF definition of SDN and NFV instead of MEF

Blogger

no audio, bummer.

Light Beer

@JEFF

Do you see QoS a challenge with respect to the IoT environment ?

Light Beer

will listen to archive, have great day!

Light Beer

Missed the "first day of class." Not cool.

Light Beer

audio on internet explorer is working fine

Light Beer

This was my response to the Listener Poll.  I still do not have audio - I'm on chrome and don't have the ability to change right now.

 

Light Beer

No audio in IE or Chrome for me either.

Light Beer

I thnk it needs to rethink the Strategy

 

Light Beer

No audio on Firefox either...giving up now

Light Beer

Ist poll, they need to rethink their startegy for IoT

Blogger

looks like its the archive

Light Beer

Most of them are rethinking their strategies to meet IoT demands, but it will be slow till clariy is there on how IoT will span out.

Light Beer

(I've set up IE to be wide open -- that is, no script blocking -- and no results, unfortunately.)

Light Beer

Friends, doesn't seem to be a browser issue. When more than a certain number of partcipants join the audio streaming, the system doesn't synchronise the latest participants. Hope LR admin will fix this in coming sessions! 

Light Sabre

AT&T is the only one that I know of exploring SDN/NFV with their Domain 2.0.  Are there other carriers?

 

Light Beer

have attempted with edge, chrome and firefox no audio,

Light Beer

Glad you guys post the listener poll. Answer: re-think their strategies for ensuring future capacity

Light Beer

No audio. I'll listen to the replay.

Light Beer

It looks I will have to fallback on the archived presentation, too.

Light Beer

me too no audio

Light Beer

Seems we have to listten to audio later on as there is no audio at the moment

 

Blogger

(I'm on IE, and no audio either, I'm sorry to say.)

 

Light Beer

Reply to first listener poll: I don't think network operators are currently prepared to meet IoT demands, provided those demands are beyond simple and occasional telemetry.

Light Beer

yeah me too no audio

 

Light Beer

Switched to MS Edge and still no audio

 

Light Beer

Hi everyone, Audio is working on Internet Explorer so please try that browser. The show is recording and the archive will be available immediately after the live show ends.

Lightning

 

I believe that many will need to rethink the Strategy Re most customers, some are budgeting for the future, but I find that others just looking to pay the least amount on their IT solution

 

 

Light Beer

There is a need to re-think and evaluate

Light Beer

No Audio on Chrome or IE ?

 

Light Beer

i have logged in with edge, chrome and firefox no audio

Light Beer

still no audio here.  I'll listen to the replay and chat for now

Light Beer

We will meet by increasing capacity as projected.

Light Beer

Most are already rethinking. Looking at robust simplified Layer 2 networks.

Light Beer

Listener poll: Do you think network operators are prepared to meet increased capacity demands from IoT OR do many need to re-think their strategies for ensuring future capacity?

 

Blogger

have you tried using IE @ANON ??

Light Beer

Yes, need to increase the capacity. Not just because of IoT but also for increase demands from Video and other MMS

Light Beer

 

Need to re-think their strategies for ensuring future capacity

Light Sabre

same here on edge no audio

Light Beer

Somewhat ready. Will adapt as the traffic grows

Light Beer

still no audio here.  maybe i'll listen to the replay

Light Beer

I agree with National22674; we should re-think strategies to ensure future capacity.

Light Beer

Most are looking forward to meet the capacity demands

Light Beer

Need to rethink their strategy to meet the future demand

Light Beer

No audio on chrome or ie

Light Beer

need to re-think

Light Beer

I'm not hearing anything in IE.

Light Beer

need to rethink  it

 

Light Beer

They need to re-think their strategies for ensuring future capacity

Light Beer

Light Beer

Updating the Flash Player in FireFox.

Light Beer

Try IE as someone already mentioned. Very Clear

Light Beer

Which slide are we on? do the slides move by themselves? they don't seem to be on my end.

Light Beer

audio good on Edge

Light Beer

Switching to IE works for me

Light Beer

Hi everyone. If you are having audio issues please try using Internet Explorer! 

There seems to be issues on Chrome and Firefox

Light Beer

IE 11 works fine

Light Beer

Audio seems to be working on Safari (for those Mac users)

Light Beer

No Audio Still after relogin

Light Beer

No Audio on Chrome

 

Light Beer

okay I will try IE no audio on chrome

Light Beer

It looks like I need to reboot the machine. Drastic measures.

Light Beer

(Just found out my system was blocking btrstatic.com for some reason. I presume that is a Blog Talk Radio site. I allowed it but no audio yet.)

Light Beer

The show is recording and some folks are getting audio -- we apologize for the problems and are working on it now. For those who are getting audio, get those questions ready for Jeff! 

Lightning

Refreshing browser

Light Beer

Still, no audio.

Light Beer

I can hear audio. Using IE.

 

 

 

Light Beer

Many what have been Tier 1 Service Providers seem like they are exploring selling their physical data centers - i.e. Verizon/AT&T/Century Link --- why do you think that is happening?
