"What," we asked Holmes (a.k.a. Martin Taylor, CTO of Metaswitch Networks), "should enterprises be expecting to get out of NFV and SDN?"
Well, said Martin, they could expect to be offered Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) that will let them in to the operator's or their own network to configure, order or even create new services.
But more specifically - how about a private, corporate IMS network? For minimal investment enterprises might soon be deploying sophisticated voice, video and messaging services across their networks.

Back in the 19th Century, Sherlock Holmes, the world's first consulting detective, lived at 221B Baker Street in London. And sometimes even the great sleuth himself was baffled by the intricacies of a particular problem. When that happened he sat in his upstairs flat, cross-legged on a pile of cushions, and smoked and smoked and smoked until he had analysed, rationalised and solved the case - and fumigated the apartment. These were his famous "Two-Pipe Problems".?This TelecomTV series is called "A Two Pint Problem" and is filmed in a pub hard by Baker St. Each episode examines, over a beer or two rather than a pound of ready-rubbed shag tobacco, one of the problems facing the global comms industry in an era of unprecedented change.?As Holmes said, "Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person." We hope to prove this to be true.
