Good day to all 

Platinum
Thank you so much, Mike & Guru - this was super-informative! I'm looking forward to seeing what evolves.
Platinum

Lots to cover in this area. I do hope we can get him back for another show later in the year. 

Author

Thanks for your input!

 

Platinum

Thank you for sharing your insights!  Great information!

Platinum

Thanks much... Look forwar to working with you all in transforming the network infrastructure and the industry... 

 

Steel

Yes companies have reservations about open source -- perforamnce, availability, and security. They will start to use it in less mission critical first and then slowly use in mission critical. A talk by PayPal Jigar at ONS was very good in this sense. 

Steel

OK, we're down to the final minutes. I think Guru may have time for one more answer, but I want to thank him again for being our guest, and thank all of you for joining today.

Carrier grade open source? Yes of course with a caveat -- service providers are not looking for five nines for each component of their infrastrucure. They like cloud providers are focusing on high availabiity of their services but willing to take a chance with individual components.. And as pioneers demonstate use of open source and ability to create new servcies, the industry will change quickly. 

Steel

@guruparulkar, some companies still believe Open Source is too risky to use in their environment. What are a few good ways to use Open Source and ensure your enterprise remains secure and stable?

Platinum

Good question DHagar. 

Question from farther below: Do service providers need to be convinced that open source can be carrier grade?

Author

"What do you see as the greatest barriers to this moving" -- what is "this" -- open source or CORD or something else? 

 

Steel

What do you see as the greatest barriers to this moving beyond a trend and becoming a key architecture for the future?

Platinum

Future trends in open source? More open source projects and then we will have a typical market for open source projects -- competition; some will succeed. Others will fail. Some will merge wiht others and so on. 

 

Steel

no an easy task 

Platinum

@guruparulkar, Guru, What do you feel are the future trends in Open Source?

Platinum

I am biased because I work with some but I will say AT&T, Verizon, NTT, SK Telecom, China Unicom, China Mobile are some of them...

 

Steel

Guru, how about this one:

 

Can Guru cite any service providers he sees as pioneers in this network transformation area? 

Author

And recongnition of a problem is the first step. They all want to transform their companies to software and services companies and it will take time but they are getting on that path and need community's help.

It is also an opportunity to help them...

 

Steel

Actually yes the cultural transformation is very important and difficult to do for service providers. Good news is that they recognize it...

 

Steel

@Mike Robuck, sure, no problem.

Platinum

Can Guru cite any service providers he sees as pioneers in this network transformation area? 

Gold

Excellent session - thanks!

Platinum

Thanks for the links freehe

Author

OK, we're all set to go here. Guru, can you discuss the cultural transformations that need to take place at service providers to enable open source?

 

Author

Nice job Mike & Guru!  Good information in there. 

Steel

Great interview!

Platinum

Thanks, Guru and Mike. Very interesting show on a key topic.

Gold

For those interested in contributing to the CORD project http://opencord.org/community/

For those interested in contributing to ONOS http://onosproject.org/community/

Platinum

yes, thanks for posting!

 

Author
Thanks for the link, freehe!
Platinum
Will these programs help expand residential access to the Internet in low-income/under-serviced communities?
Platinum
It seems like the benefits of CORD may be faster-to-market opportunities for new services, since it's not hindered by some of the development cycle delays that in-house programs may have. (Thinking about the conversation related to google's R&D timeline on an article earlier this week)
Platinum

How can one contribute to the Open Source project?

Platinum

Sorry if already asked - are vendors coming around to the idea that embracing initiatives such as CORD can help GROW their business? Rather than threaten?

Author

Poll Answer:  All of the above

Steel

Wow, they asked my question during the interview. :)

Platinum

@MikeRobuck, poll answer - all of the above.

Platinum

I saw an E-CORD demo this week - using combo of switches, disaggregated optical modules, ONOS and VNFs... it was really quite impressive

Author

Is the potential for saving money with CORD higher around capex or opex?

Gold

@Michelle, I agree - about standards.

Platinum

Poll question _ I actually think the big roadblock will be convincing network operators that open source can be carrier grade and that external support will be available

 

Author

Mmm, possibly vendors pushing proprietary stuff. How many are really committed to openness?

Gold

@faryl, the article hasn't been published yet but I will share when it is. Thanks!

Platinum

I've gotta run - I'll catch the archive version to hear the rest of the show. Thanks for the great show so far!

Platinum

Standards are good as are standards bodies - but too many not so good

Platinum

Poll answer: All of the above

Platinum

Poll: All of the above - or at least the perceptions that the first two options are issue, paired with the second.

Platinum

What are the capabilities providers need to be successful in open source?  And how are they different from today?

Platinum

I agree. AT&T and other providers need to collaborate and develop standards to implement competition versus having a monopology on open source.

Platinum

I think it should be the smaller or second tier telcos embracing such open source initiatives like ONOS to gain agility and reduce capex/opex. But currently only the giant ones are in ONS. Hopefully, this speads to many more telcos.

Steel

poll time: 

What do you see as the biggest roadblock to enabling open source?

Too many open source groups

Too many standards bodies

Large vendors promoting closed proprietary systems?

All of the above?

Author
@freehe Can you share the link to your article?
 
Platinum

Michelle, I am with you on silos

Platinum

So the benefits of multiplicity of platforms in open source mirror those in the proprietary platforms - variety and options are good; too many becomes problematic.

Platinum

freehe - sounds fascinating, it would be great to share your article - great topic.

Platinum

Jumping in late here, but can Guru talk at all about how the cable industry is looking at trends similar to CORD?

Gold

Removing silos is sooo good

Platinum

Can you share your vision of what you see and what the market will be like in the next 5-10 yea

Platinum

Loving this discussion. I wrote an article about using Open Source wtih streaming analytics.

Platinum

Who are the current leaders?

Platinum

Yes, I so agree, you cannot just use Open Source, that is only one part of the entire enterprise.

Platinum

I am so glad he said we need standards for Open Source. Good point.

Platinum

63 degrees in Washington DC.

Platinum

What is the status of standards that support open source platforms?

Platinum

How do you convince CEOs that CORD is beneficial to their business?

Platinum

What are the biggest challenges in transitioning to CORD?

Gold

Can Guru quantify in any way the impact CORD could have on service provider economics?

Gold

No snow here in San Diego either :-)

Platinum

How serious is the risk to open source from proprietary technologies? Would Guru say it is becoming a bigger threat and if so why?

Gold

Good thing you weren't flying out of DIA, Gary

Author

I'm listening from Texas. No snow here today. Sunny and bright.

Platinum

Southern California

Platinum

Denver - clear today, 17 inches ofsnow yesterday

 

Listening in from damp old London.

Gold

How do you see pricing models changing as a result of Open Source?

Platinum

Ok. Folks. Time for the live questions in a few minutes. Start sending in your questions. I will try to get through as many as I can and those we don't get to on the show, we will try to answer on the post-show chat.

Author

Looking forward to today's show.

Gold

We're just under 15 minutes away

Platinum

Waiting for the  presentation

 

Steel

Very excited to hear Mike and Guru discuss SDN, NFV and open source!!

Steel

Platinum

Great topic, waiting for the show.

Platinum

Look foward to the show tomorrow....

 

Steel

We're counting down to tomorrow's show. Have those questions ready for Guru.

Author

Looking forward to this. It will be interesting to see how On.Lab's projects help open up opportunities for developers as an alternative to AWS and similar services.

Platinum

dhagar - sounds highly informative - looking forward to it.

Platinum

yes, should be interesting 

Platinum

I will be watching.

Platinum

Looking forward to it.
