Since this is a winner take all, do-or-die caption contest, there will only be one winner. That one winner will be the recipient of a $200 Amazon gift card. The losers will need to take a hard look at themselves in a mirror, know that they beat themselves, that the winner wanted it more and that they failed at gut-check time.
The winner will be determined by mano a mano via voting in the comment section of this blog. The caption with the most votes, and you can only vote once, will take home the trophy, er, gift card. Feel free to enter as many times as you would like, but really, let's take it one caption at a time here, stay focused and play within ourselves.
The contest ends at midnight on Nov. 30. Voting closes at midnight ET on Dec. 17. At the end of the day, it is what it is.
In this Telco Transformation radio show, James Crawshaw, Senior Analyst – OSS/BSS Transformation, Heavy Reading, will discuss the challenges and opportunities around re-creating OSS in a virtualized world.
The promise of 5G connectivity is a truly Networked Society. 5G is not just about making the throughput larger, it is also about offering use case optimized user experiences and inclusion of new vertical sectors. Use cases predicted for 2020 will need new types of connectivity services that are highly scalable and programmable in terms of speed, capacity, security, reliability, availability, latency and impact on battery type. 5G will need to be an agile, dynamically programmable network that can meet diverse needs with new, as-a-service models on a single infrastructure. In this Webinar, you will learn how the Open Networking Foundation is combining open source and software defined standards through its Open innovation Pipeline to advance innovative architectures such as mobile CORD (M-CORD). M-CORD is being developed by the CORD Project community under ONF's leadership and hosted by The Linux Foundation. Built on the pillars of SDN, NFV and cloud technologies, the end-to-end M-CORD open reference solution is arming operators with the capabilities needed to start planning for the upcoming 5G transition.
