Re: NFV
@dcawrey, it is a distinctive contrast to the past wait-and-see attitudes, that often preserves the barriers.

As you and Mike point out, NFV examples of interoperability will provide the proof of what can be added to the equation.  These evens sound like a great testing ground to open the opportunities and remove the barriers.  Seeing it will help the unbelievers.

Re: NFV
I agree with you, NFV needs a shot in the arm. Plugfests may be the way to do that, a stark change from days past when everyone was seemingly racing to build their own proprietary stack. These are better days for sure.

Re: NFV
  • I think NFV needed a boost and this plugtest is a good shot in the arm. ETSI came up with the first NFV specs, so even though there's work to be down this shows the industry that it's moving forward.
