Software-driven network services — lots of talk

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

Network operators at a UK software event talked about more aggressive plans to focus on software-driven network services and features, and included goals of delivering software modules as elements or units of basic service functionality. This vision mirrors what we have heard in private dialogs and public presentations alike, beginning almost 18 months ago, but there are more public articulations of the view today than there have been in the past. Some operators are reportedly avid supporters of Web 2.0 (BT included) and others (like Telstra) are more skeptical. We believe that despite all of the talk here, there is actually relatively little real progress in transforming operator business models to a more software-driven, partner-developer-focused, form.
