I really learned a lot about ECOMP through this discussion with AT&T's Mr. Rice. It makes me want to find out more.

Platinum

Thanks a lot Mark & Chris. each time I learn something new :) 

Platinum

Thanks a lot Mark & Chris. Great session :). - Fawad.

Steel

Many thanks, Mike and Chris!

Author

Looks like it was a great show! Sorry I missed the live presentation. Time to listen to the on-demand version...

Platinum

Thanks again Chris. Have a great day all. 

Author

ok folks, only 1 minute left.  Thanks for your time today.  I enjoyed the conversation with Mike.  I hope you enjoyed it as well.

Steel

it does make sense 

Platinum

Satisfying customers, keeping up with demand are top priorities, but NVF/SDN are tools to deliver the first two

Steel

Down to our last 5 minutes. So final question time. 

Author

From below:

 

Where does virtualization rank within most Tier 1 operators today? Is it their #1 priority, top 3, top 5 or lower? 

Author

I think that all steps along the way add value.  There may be really good reasosn to build and deploy a gray box.

Steel

Chris, do "gray" boxes add any value, or do we just need to move to white boxes? 

Author

Mike - CPE use cases --> yes.  We do this today with our Network on Demand product.  There will definitely be more there.

 

Steel

the only "reluctance" is a "do it right, do it once" requirement; hence, the need for harmonization.

 

Steel

In regards to SDN, do you see more CPE related uses cases going forward? We are moving beyond core with SDN?

Author

Carol -- Tthe reducing friction does resonate with vendors and SPs.  You are right, it benefits the whole ecosystem.

 

Steel

creatinga true Network CLoud is a top technical priority...that covers many areas

 

Steel

Satisfying customers, keeping up with demand are top priorities, but NVF/SDN are tools to deliver the first two

 

Steel

Across the broad spectrum of technology initiatives they are working on, I mean.

Author

Chris, do you find the message of "reducing friction" is resonating with vendors, as well as network operators? It seems like something they would embrace. So is there any reluctance?

Where does virtualization rank within most Tier 1 operators today? Is it their #1 priority, top 3, top 5 or lower? 

Author

depends....some areas are not ameniable to NFV, but SDN works fine (core routers in the backbone, for instance)....generally, deploy together

 

Steel

Chris, AT&T is past this point, but how would you have answered a few years ago?

Poll time:

How will telcos deploy SDN and NFV in their networks?

A.     SDN first

B.     NFV first

C.     SDN and NFV at the same time

D.    No plans in the near term for either

Author

THere is a section on serice deign and creation in our ECOMP whitepaper at www.att.com/ecomp

 

Steel

Thanks - great session!

Author

service desgn and creation -- a data-driven way to do design, based on models (HEAT, YANG, TOSCA), create a catalog of services

 

Steel

Good question Fawad. We'll give Chris time to reply. 

Author

thank you for a great info/ideas :) 

Platinum

Chris, Can you talk more about 'Service Design & Creation' function in ECOMP? Whats the vision around that? - Fawad.

Steel

Yes, will be on demand later today

Author
Will Chris' chat be recorded and available to listen again?
Steel

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
NFV would be our first priority
Steel

Chris, please, what about OPNFV ?  Linux Project too .. there will be collaboration or .. the better will survive?

 

Steel

So when you launch in OS, will you have community members already and will some of those be other communications service providers?

We would start off with NFV, then move to SDN

Steel

Telcos will deploy SDN and NFV with NFV first.

Steel

No preso, just audio and chat

Author

Chris, I'd love to know where you are in the open source process. 

 

Google Chrome version 52.0 has great audio.

Steel

The audio using Internet Explorer v11.0.3.4 works for me

Steel

Nice to be here; I'm ready to learn new things today!

Good day Robuck and Chris!

Platinum

Can't wait to hear from Chris Rice.

Steel

ryukyo02, 

By definition "disparate environments" are designed to operate as a fundamentally distinct.  Hard to loose what you didn't have :)   If anything, we are moving to environments that are allowing us to get out of these silos and allow for future integration and flexibility.  Companies are now providing solutions to fit these models as well as providing ways to integrate legacy systems. (If not, they are missing a great opportunity)

Also, Look up MEF 55 ... from a standards perspective this is a model for industry to be MORE compatible and allows the ability to integrate, not only inside a company, but also across various companies/vendors Look at the work being done on the East & West bound interfaces in the standards body LSO Archtecture....  Lots of good stuff being done in these areas.

Steel
With all these orchestration models will we lose the ability to integrate disparate environments in the future?
Steel

Looking forward to hearing from Chris Rice!

Author

Looking forward to learning about ECOMP.

Platinum

looking foward to this show!
