Diego Lopez, Head of Technology Exploration, Global CTO Unit, Telefonica, Spain, thinks we're facing a fundamental change in networking with SDN and NFV, but he's almost certain it won't be exactly as we expect. Java, he points out, was welcomed as a major inflection point for programming in the late 1990s, but was expected to be all about 'applets' . In the event its impact was huge applets have hardly been heard of since.
