Yeah, it'd be good to have him back. LOTS of ground to cover in a very broad and deep topic.

Pascal covered a lot of ground there at the end. A lot of important items in the works.

the show's over already? I think the audio restarted from the beginning for me... maybe

Platinum

Thanks, Mike and Pascal! Good radio show today!

I don't think I heard that clearly.

MAP Net or MATH NET?

Platinum

Thanks for getting to my question!

FOLLOWUP: So does the problem fundamentally boil down to commoditizing IT versus the demand for "commissioned" IT (particularly with compliance demands, etc.)? How do you solve this?

dizzying! (I hear CSP and think CRISPY - yum)

Platinum

@Michelle: And it can get even more complicated with the similarities if you have some mild dyslexia going on. (e.g., IEEE vs. IETF... vs. TM Forum... vs. MEF... and so on).

{somewhat unrelated} a lot of alphabet soup in these processes ;)

Platinum

Is fragmentation an ongoing issue right now?

Platinum

Good question. I'm not surprised to hear providers are building out their own instead of waiting

Platinum

We'll keep rolling on the audio side; send in questions for me to ask Pascal.

@Carol: Overlap is inevitable and perhaps desired. A *few* competing standards aren't problematic if you can clearly identify which one is right for you for your purposes/geography/etc.

To work towards no overlap is essentially working toward one standard...and that's unsustainable because eventually a competing standard will come along as people become dissatisfied with the single choice.

I think it's less about reducing the number of groups - although that's important - than doing what Pascal is describing and having groups work together efficiently. 

Not everyone is an expert in everything and open source groups need the real experts in developing code. The key thing to me is avoiding overlap among the groups and working together efficiently.

 

ETSI has some good stuff and a lot of participation, but Tom Nolle's recent criticisms are rather compelling, IMHO. (link)

F.     It's really about partnerships, so some combination of the above 

A.    ETSI

B.     TM Forum

C.     The Linux Foundation (ODL, ONAP, OPNFV, etc.)

D.     MEF

Steel

Anyway, my reticent answer is F, I guess... Not any one standard can work for anyone... but we really do need to unite and narrow things down.

Poll answer: F (I have no idea which would be best)

Platinum

You're exactly right, Joe! So many directions to go

Platinum

@Mike: You missed a few too! That's the problem.

Yeah, it's hard to unify around a standard when there are more and more standards all the time.

Good question!!! I've wondered about the number of open source communities.

Platinum

Poll: There are various open source communities and standards bodies that are attempting to define how SDN, NFV, virtualization and orchestration will evolve going forward. Which body should take the reins?

 

A.    ETSI

B.     TM Forum

C.     The Linux Foundation (ODL, ONAP, OPNFV, etc.)

D.     MEF

E.     IEEE

F.     It's really about partnerships, so some combination of the above (which ones?)

Automatic API generation will be huge

QUESTION: Re: "dabbling in virtualization" vs. "jump in"...

Do you see virtualization like cloud in that it's okay -- and good, even -- to start to dip your toes in by gradually moving things to virtualized environments? Or do carriers/telecoms/network operators (or, for that matter, environments) actually do themselves more harm than good by only "dabbling" in virtualization because of the complexities involved and the problems of resolving complexities?

No slides. but feel free to ask questions!

Author

Sorry.
Pklease, re there any slides available:

Thanks

I haven't seen the report itself, but I saw Dennis Mendyk's piece introducing the report on Light Reading the other day. Some really good insights there and on the discussion board.

Pascal, I know a lot of network operators are looking to MEF to develop these interfaces and enable end-to-end services on an automated basis. But I am also hearing that some folks feel the presssure to move so quickly, they are developing their own APIs to expose their services to UCaaS, CPaaS and app developers faster than they think standards can. 

What can MEF do to make this happen faster - or is that something the SPs have to do themselves?

Are there ant slides?
thanks

Steel

Listening from Boston today. Dull and drizzly.

Good Morning from San Diego, CA

Steel

Hi, guys! (Sorry to be slightly late! Glad to have archives!)

Always seem to be issues with Chrome. Hello Texas!

 

Author

Good afternoon! Audio is working well. I had to switch from chrome to firefox...

I'm listening from the great state of Texas

Platinum

Welcome to the Radio Show and Chat everyone! Everyone say hello to Pascal and tell us where you listening in from?

Author

Good morning! It's good to see a busy room today.

Platinum

Good morning/afternoon everyone!  Remember to turn up your volume on the computers.  At the top of the hour an audio player will pop up on your screen.  If you don't see it, try to press F5 to refresh your screen. Remember, there's no slides for this it's just a discussion, so be sure to post your questions, comments and thoughts on the message boards and we will join you on the chat after the audio stream. 

Author

Looking forward to a great discussion today. Have your questions ready!

Steel

It's good to see such a busy room! Looking forward to the show on Thursday. I hope to see you all there!

Platinum

They should send a new reminder.

Steel

The wrong date was on the promos. This radio show is Thursday, Oct. 26. 

Author

No sound for me either...

Steel

Looking forward to this.
