network automation with ONAP
how network automation can work together with ONAP architecture, this is a issue.

ONAP and automation
I think, as a couple of folks have pointed out, that this does come down to a maturity level for ONAP and within the SPs involved. ONAP is not to a level yet that you download, install and start using it in a short amount of time. Likewise, many of the SPs are maturing themselves with regard to point of view of how to best automate with the plethora of tools available now and coming down the pike from vendors old and new.

I would bet ONAP is on every SPs list of potentials down the road, but it is not as exciting to talk about due to the maturity level. AI is hot, but it isn't like there is a ton out there right now that is usable either. Add to that the fact that people will lump into AI things that are not truly AI...I have a friend that is working in this area and he is quick to correct people that include machine leanring and the like in the AI bucket. Maybe he is an "AI snob"? That is another conversation altogether.

I do like hearing the comments about small steps, not jumping too far ahead, etc. Traditionally companies will jump into an automation project that should really be step 3 or 4 of an overall automation program, instead of planning out and executing on steps 1, 2, 3 and 4, thereby realizing much more success and return.

Taking baby steps, that tranistion into a brisk walk, that tranistion into running over time is the smarter way to automate, in my humble opionion. The misconcpetion is that it is faster to jump ahead in the automation lifecycle and "just figure it out". There is absolutely no reason to think that starting with small steps and going through that ramp up is mutually exclusive with velocity in getting automation implemented.

Re: Automation and Edge Computing
Most of the major operators I've spoken with in recent weeks - AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink, Orange, Colt, BCE, Vodafone -- all talk about ONAP being important to their future, so that is surprising. 

I'm not sure I'd agree it's PR versus reality, but there may be a timing thing. The conversations I've had have been with the technical guys who are aren't terribly concerned with PR. Javier Benitez from Colt, for instance, says ONAP is absolutely important to them, but he thinks it needs years to mature. And Adam Dunstan from CenturyLink says ONAP is definitely interesting to them, but since they aren't using the tooling, they aren't likely to join any time soon. Instead, they'll use pieces of the software and contribute the changes the make to it.  

Those are real-world statements, not PR.

Re: Faith in the unknown

Agree - I was struck by the AI finding as well. When I hear "AI" from providers/vendors, I translate that into more concrete terms like "closed loop automation" and "machine learning." I had not viewed AI as something different from these.

Faith in the unknown
Steve -- The AI buzz falls into the usual pattern of placing early trust in a vague concept, doesn't it. Kind of like IoT -- a concept that is so general that it means everything and nothing.

Re: Automation and Edge Computing
Re: ONAP. We were surprised too. Itís the difference between PR and reality, probably. If you look at how much support ONAP has at a press release and logo level you would think itís success is absolutely assured. Then you get into the trenches and talk to real people struggling with virtualization and itís just MIA in the conversation. There is a gap or logic bomb in there - and weíve seen it before at other industry get togethers.

Automation and Edge Computing
Good piece. 

I'm a bit surprised about the ONAP mentions because it is definetly part of the discussion on service provider edge computing. Edge needs automation to be economically viable. Being in the discussion doesn't mean something gets used, obviously -- but it's in the mix.
