Open source meets telecom at NFV World Congress

Art Fewell | May 19, 2015
Open is the solution both to stemming the bleeding from the limitations of legacy business models and to unlock the gateway to new opportunity.

The simple reality is that every piece of the value chain from vendor to carrier to end-user have all become enamored by the possibilities of new technologies. Historical adoption curves for new technologies are well documented and it is has always been the case that the market grows very slowly until it reaches a point of relative maturity, and once that is reached the market explodes in size and becomes a much more attractive target for commercial investment and produces stable consumption targets for consumers, balanced by competition.

Perhaps more than anything else, the budding NFV movement benefits from timing; it has been a long road for the community to rationalize how to adapt and thrive with open source, and this timing has met elegantly with the birth of NFV, bringing together a perfect storm of willing vendors, eager consumers and elegant new governance models providing optimal checks, balances and a transparent collaborative framework to drive the industry forward.
