I mentioned a number of documents in my interview.The original joint-carrier white paper introducing NFV can be obtained here: http://portal.etsi.org/NFV/NFV_White_Paper.pdf

I mentioned the ETSI NFV Security Problem Statement. The first document released by the Security Working Group (formerly known as the Security Expert Group). Here is the link:

http://www.etsi.org/deliver/etsi_gs/NFV-SEC/001_099/001/01.01.01_60/gs_NFV-SEC001v010101p.pdf

You can find other ETSI NFV information (no login required) here:

If anyone has any other queries, you can reach me at d.clarke@cablelabs.com.

Thanks for listening - Don Clarke.

Steel

thank you, good day to all :) 

Platinum

Thanks again for the opportunity guys!

Steel

Presentations are even more fun when they're given by people with accents, though, I know that to them we have American accents.

Author

I'll be at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in The Hague and Broadband World Forum in London the following week if anyone wants to catch-up with me there.

Steel

Absolutely!  Thanks, Mike, good day to all as well!

Platinum

Which means we need to invite Don back for another show! Have a great day, everyone. 

Author

Thanks for people's interest, I am happy to have follow-ups on any topic.

Steel

I think US operators will be very competitive, I see a lot of innovation going on.

Steel

Thanks Don. Up to you if you have time for one more question or not. Thanks everyone for joining today. I'll post additional resources here as I get them. 

Author

What role do you see devices, along with the technology advancements and services,  playing in the way we consume content?

Platinum

I think we will see an evolution. Some operators are more aggressive than others depending on their local circumstances and whether their leadership (i.e. CEO) wants to take a vision driven approach or a finance driven approach.

Steel

Don, you mentioned the coming out of 5G at the 2020 Olympics.  Where do you see US companies in the competitive landscape in development of 5G?

Platinum

interesting question 

Platinum

See Kyrio info on cablelabs.com

Steel

@clarede - that does appear to work!

Platinum

SO OpenStack is a focus for us at CableLabs. However other components are equally important, notably MANO.

Steel

I'd like to hear more about Kyrio.. and how it relates to Cablelabs. 

Platinum

Here's a good one:

Don, over the next 5 years, do you see the changes are truly transforming to new networks/systems, or evolving from where we are?

Author

OpenStack is an important focus within the cable industry. It is already used to support today's services so its not a stretch for it to evolve to support new services based on NFV-SDN.

Steel

@clarkede, that makes sense - which is why the networked systems work.

Platinum

Excellent, thanks, Mike.  Do you envision more mergers with the leaders?

Platinum

And network investments are huge as you need large footprint of connectivity for the content proposition to be viable.

Steel

And to somewhat answer the question I just posted, I know Comcast has been very active with OpenStack, and Cox also. 

Author

Don, how do you see the business models changing with these advancements?

Platinum

Thanks for the feedback. On networks drivers versus content drivers. In my experience you always have a chicken and egg. The content depends on the network and the network investment depends on the content drivers.

Steel

Very insightful.  Thanks for your time!

Platinum

Great crystal ball and vision mhhf1ve~

Platinum

Thanks for attempting to address my curiosity about where your crystal ball see IoT going, tho... 

Platinum

I'll give Don a chance to glance through the qustions, but here's one to start:

What are the leading companies that are transforming the cable industry?

Author

Don, over the next 5 years, do you see the changes are truly transforming to new networks/systems, or evolving from where we are?

Platinum

Great presentation!

Platinum

well, there are so many moving parts still for IoT, it's hard to say what will really happen in even the near future for IoT (despite all the buzz).

Platinum

Thanks good presentation!

Steel

Thank you, Don - great info!

Platinum

Thanks, Don! It's a pleasure listening.

Author

LIke so many other answers, it really is a "that depends."

Author

@mhhf1ve there's your question now being addressed.

Author

Don, who will be the drivers in the future, the networks, the content, etc.?

Platinum

Who are the emerging companies or start-ups in the cable industry that are the ones to watch?

Platinum

Don, that link would be great - thank you.

Platinum

What are the emerging technologies in the cable industry?

Platinum

how does Don see IoT evolving with virtualization..?

Platinum

@Mike, or will the focus on what we secure change?

Platinum

Who are the leading platforms for the new systems?

Platinum

@mhhf1ve a paradox there!

Author

@ariella -- a non-conformist who just picked the poll option to follow the herd.... 

Platinum

@Ariella, good point - a needed change in thinking!

Platinum

@Mike Robuck, thanks for the link to Don's blog.

Platinum

@mhhf1ve, Thanks for the link.

Platinum

@Dhagar @freehe It's something that we're more used to from the competitions people see in their school and even work experience.

Author

check out: http://www.kyrio.com

Platinum

@mhhf1ve hurray, we have a noncomformist!

Author

For us I would say A. Very hard to monitize in a small market.

Steel

There is too much competition and not enough collaboration.

Platinum

I'm so tempted to go with another letter just to not appear to be following the herd here.

Author

I would say "C" :) 

Platinum

Do you envision more cable companies providing software, tools and resources to help educate students in K-12 and college?

Platinum

Poll Time! What is the best way for CSPs to roll out NFV in their networks this year?

A. Don't deploy anything; standards bodies need to get on the same page

B. Use their own teams to mix NFV solutions from best-of-breed vendors

C. Use a system integrator to blend NFV solutions from multiple vendors

D. Go with a certified, integrated NFV product from 1 vendor

E. Buy the whole NFV ball of wax from 1 vendor

F. Wait for more large operators to deploy NFV to reduce pain points

Author

What are the leading companies that are transforming the cable industry?

Platinum

The message board is moving again. Audio quality can be impacted by your broadband connection -- little cut outs should only last a few seconds.

Platinum

Where do you see the industry in the next five years?

Platinum

It's working for me now.

 

Platinum

Does Don have a view on the New IP agency? http://www.newipagency.com/document.asp?doc_id=722035

Platinum

So, then, I'm hearing a "hybrid" approach....that's key.....

Platinum

@mhhf1ve and so you could choose the ones you like, right?

Author

@rleer4 I still have audio

Author

(The good thing about standards is.. there are so many to choose from.) :P

 

Platinum

How does the cable perspective differ from a telco or MSO perspective? or is it all the same now?

Platinum

I think "collaboration" is one of the current words thrown around a lot today, right up there with "agility."

Author

If you've got questions, now is the time to send them through. We'll take a few questions at the end of the interview before we go into the live chat.

Author

@Mike thanks for the link.

Author

Heh. NFV isn't too far off from NSFW.. :P

 

Platinum

Seems to be working for me. 

Author

I'm on Chrome but had no problems

Author
Great tip for Google Chrome users!
Steel

Thanks for the update @Liz. Chat is working/not working today.

Platinum

i know why now, thank you!

I'm always curious about the cable industry and its plans for the future. This should be a great session. I'm looking forward to learning more about the NFV interoperability lab.

Platinum
