Network predictions
The part about networks are getting smarter and better is interesting to me as it relates to 5 gigabyte data for mobile phones etc.

Re: Network predictions
@clrmoney, as I understand it, 5G will entirely redefine telecom as well - which will expand uses and value for networking.  It is becoming a "virtual" redesign.  Exciting times!

I thought it was interesting that he wrote that SDN and NFV's days are numbered as standalone concepts. Especially since NFV has seemed to have stalled a bit.

Re: Network predictions
@Mike, that truly is an interesting prediction.  I believe it is true in that, as AT&T has done, what works is a platform that scales and deploys the technology that is needed and delivers better networking capabilities precisely.  That may be part of the magic of the platform, Indigo, and others in how they are better able to provide solutions that fit a growing demand with the new technology designs and new disruptions, like 5G.

Re: Network predictions
Very excited about a more consumerized future, that's for sure. 

There are still many organizations out there that don't cater to consumers properly. It's a huge opportunity to use technology to make customer experiences better - and those who don't are going to lose out!

Re: Network predictions
@dcawrey, I am with you on that!  I think there is great opportunity to use technology to enhance networking and service delivery.  Those who do will capture a large part of a growing market.

Re: Network predictions
@DHagar Don't grow  your share of the pie. Just make the pie bigger. 

I think with these changes in networking that is what we are going to start seeing. There will be tremendous growth in this space.

Re: Network predictions
@DHagar It seems many in technology are a bit short sighted when it comes to vision. Innovation is an ever-growing industry. It's not going anywhere. 

I think I lifted that saying from some really smart guy like Steve Jobs or something.

I can see not wanting to take a risk like that in the case that it wouldn't work out. However sometimes you got to take risks in order to learn and move forward..

Re: Network predictions
@dcawrey, true - few are following his model of success!  The leaders will, however, and Apple will contribute to thrive through innovation.  Today companies either innovate or become a commodity - at far less return on investment.  It's their choice.

Re: Network predictions
@dcawrey, thank you for your comment. It's no secret customer care has been an ongoing challenge for network operators, both from consumer and enterprise perspectives. Today, the customer must come first, with a focus on delivering true local presence and agility for enterprises that are global yet need local attention.

Re: Network predictions
@Carl, that is the "secret sauce".  Being able to focus on the customer and solve their problems is KEY.  The providers that do not do that will just become another commodity, trying to distinguish themselves on limited functionalities.

Re: Network predictions
@DHagar, thank you for your comment. You are absolutely right. Moving into new territories like 5G requires a scalable and intelligent network that is optimized for SDN and NFV. Having this kind of liquid infrastructure in place, that can flex bandwidth in real-time, is the first step to effectively deliver everything we look for in connectivity, like speed, security and reliability.

Re: Network predictions
@Carl, that is where you folks are on the right track.  Your network enables users to have all those elements, which greatly contributes to the better services and functionality.  Trying to get there in other incremental modes will not be as successful, in my opinion.

Do  you see us as continually moving into network evolutions as opposed to "staged" new network designs?

Another vote for bandwidth
For me the takeaway from the article is that all the other attractive changes -- better more responsive consumer service, reduction of internetwork barriers, greater use of the cloud -- rest on more bandwidth. I think Mr. Grivner's focus is dead on: the need for and the deployment of bandwidth is about to become a revolution in how we think about business enterprises. 

I'd only add that the processing-side equivalent -- throughput -- will probably become another important area, just as soon as there's enough bandwidth to allow us to see that problem as well.
