Why isn’t the NFV juggernaught rolling quite as anticipated? Brian thinks part of the problem is the underlap and overlap of the myriad standards bodies - somebody needs to have a blueprint for how all the bodies should fit together, he says. It’s a similar story with IoT: lots of hype in the cycle for several years now but very little real end-user action - what gives? At present it’s all about components and connectivity but Brian thinks IoT will fly when it’s about services and the essential connectivity between them.
