Marc Halbfinger, CEO, PCCW Global
PCCW Global has been among the first to embrace SDN, NFV, and LSO and has played a leading role in MEF to help drive LSO development and adoption. The carrier is especially interested in creating LSO-related commercial interfaces to handle the new generation of dynamic Third Network services that are orchestrated across multiple providers.
As Marc says: “Now we are headed to a bandwidth-on-demand, dynamic environment where the commercial parameters are no longer two-dimension. They are three-dimensional and perhaps even more. We have to be able to create wholesale infrastructures for commercial settlement between carriers for bandwidth, for bandwidth variations by destinations, by applications, by services."
