Order From Chaos: The Steve Saunders BCE Keynote

Kicking off BCE 2017, Light Reading founder Steve Saunders lays blame for NFV's slow ramp-up and urges telecom to return to old-fashioned standards building and interoperability testing.
Think of this as the video sequel to the recent columns he's written about NFV and the prospect of a telecom app store. (See Time for a Telecom Reboot and Together, We Can Build the Telecom 'App Store'.)

chaos Extremely entertaining and insightful commentary.  I love the fact that Steve calls out specific companies - and he's not just picking on the little guys. Looking back on all the big standards moves, the push for interoperability in telecom has typically needed at least one major service provider champion and sometimes a small group - maybe those mentioned in the keynote will be the catalyst to move things in the right direction.  That said, I can't recall the last time it seemed that telecom was not in the grip of chaos...
