George sees SDN's roll as turning a lot of network functionality into a compute problem. This gives you scale and agility and at the same time takes cost out. If you are willing to accept change, he says of telcos,.and if that change comes as innovation, you'll be able to run things in a much more seamless way; you have fewer piece parts to manage, so the management problem will become simpler too.
