    RADCOM made waves when it won the AT&T deal for its MaveriQ NFV network probing solutions to support AT&T Integrated Cloud in August 2016. Now the company appears to be making further inroads to global CSPs where incumbents Netscout and others have been installed for decades. The big driver for AT&T was cost reduction and […]

    ETSI held the second NFV Plugtests in Sophia Antipolis January 2018. This is a good first step to help CSPs get more comfortable in deploying virtualization in their existing networks. The market adoption for NFV and SDN has been muted at best but we are beginning to see positive signs of something more than a […]

    At this year’s MWC, for the first time, I began seeing tangible examples of properly designed NFV orchestration. They were tangible in the sense that real NFV suppliers were solving real customer (CSP) needs. They were further tangible in that the hand-waiving component was significantly reduced.  They were “properly designed” in the sense that they […]

    One of the interesting contrasts at the recent Layer123 Zero Touch Automation conference in Madrid was the juxtaposition of the work being undertaken by the ETSI Open Source MANO (OSM) project and the MEF Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) project; presented on the preliminary day of the conference. With its Madrid location OSM, and its key sponsor […]

    The highlight of the DTW 2018 event in Nice was the Bladerunner catalyst. This was notable in being a non Telco centric, dynamic and transient service. Most NFV products or proof of concepts still major on what are effectively variants of existing WAN or CPE products. The catalyst was about enabling a heavy machinary provider […]

    Since our first coverage of the “Telco Cloud”, Appledore Research has emphasized that this is a business model and economics shift, more than a technology shift. Technology is merely the enabler. This is why one of our earliest major research documents investigated “The Economics of Virtualized Networks” and noted that without product innovation and significant […]

  • 09/14/18--03:55: Ciena crosses the Don River

    I have been running regularly for over 20 years; ever since I realised that the plane, hotel, taxi lifestyle of a telco consultant was not conducive to a healthy body. Increasingly though, I have been experiencing problems with ankles, achilles heal and knees for which the only remedy seems to be less running. As the...

    Fail fast and fail often The announcement by Ericsson of the complete write down of its next generation BSS “Revenue Manager” and a refocus on its legacy BSS did not surprise us.
