Re: David's Excellent Contribution to NFV
Interesting development. Perhaps he thinks there is even more he can do to progress the NFV front on the vendor side of the house. Of course, Israel is where lots of the Telecom 2.0 innovation is happening from a software perspective. Looking forward to the comments about current state of Project Ocean. Are they or are they not going to use ONAP or OSM??!

Re: David's Excellent Contribution to NFV
I hope so for similar reasons, we need more people on the operator side with rare experience of both the vendor and operator environments for virtualisation speaking candidly on what the priorities are. I have no doubt David will have a lot of options and I wish him well.

Re: David's Excellent Contribution to NFV
I can't imagine he won't have a line of companies at the door with offers. I personally hope he stays on the network operator side of the business, but that's just selfishness on my part. I want to continue to invite him to speak at our events.

David's Excellent Contribution to NFV
David has made a huge contribution to the industry effort on NFV, from his time at Alcatel-Lucent when his passion and drive to engage the operators who brought NFV to industry attention in 2012 was pivotal in helping them understand the vendor impacts, through to the present with practical implementation of project Ocean. The Vodafone team has made an outstanding contribution to industry progress on NFV and David's willingness to speak out on challenges that need to be addressed has been refreshing and highly influential. I very much hope we will see David continue helping the industry move forward in a new role.
