NFV Buzz Around the Web

Ever since our successful NFV demo with Vodafone at Mobile World Congress this past February, there’s been a lot of buzz around our NFV offering. The live use case helped many in the industry understand that virtualization isn’t some futuristic offering, but a real offering that can contribute value today.

To me, walking the halls and looking into the booths at Mobile World Congress offers the opposite experience of walking through a museum. While both give a glimpse of another time, museums show me the world that used to be, and Mobile World shows the world of the future.

We have a long history of overestimating the impact of technology.  In the twentieth century the plethora of technology and innovations from dish-washers, washing machines and vacuum cleaners were predicted to slash the amount of time spent on housework.  However, between 1900 and 1965 the time spent on “home-making” only fell a paltry 6 hours a week.  And in the late 1990s, despite Wireless Application Protocol or “WAP” being marketed as “Internet in your pocket”, […]  More >>

vCPE: a lucrative journey for fixed operators – too costly to miss!

What is the return on investment for vCPE-enabled services? BILLIONS! for a Tier-1 developed market communications service providers (CSPs). Virtualisation of the customer premises equipment (CPE) is a very prominent NFV use case to-date. Several major Tier 1 CSPs have already launched vCPE-enabled services, for example AT&T’s ‘Network on Demand’, Deutsche Telekom’s ‘Cloud VPN’ and Telefónica’s vCPE for residential services in Brazil, and many others in developed markets are evaluating the technology.
