The Digital Service Provider, Episode 1.30

Have CSPs spent too long on virtualisation and is it now time to look beyond NFV and get serious about Cloud Native? But how should these technologies, which include containers, micro services and Kubernetes orchestrators, best be incorporated into a telecoms network? What about the ongoing substantial investment – in terms of both time and money – that the industry has made in NFV? There is increasing support for the idea that CSPs have spent too long on virtualisation and that it is now time to look beyond NFV. Has this time been wasted, or is NFV a necessary step on the path to Cloud Native? Does the industry need a sudden course correction, or is the more pragmatic approach to deploy cloud native alongside NFV?
