As NFV is developed further there will inevitably be strands that extend the management of the functions (and therefore management of the network) from within the NFV framework itself - for instance. many experts think that containerised applications will move the locus of network orchestration towards NFV. And there are other moves, still germinating within the NFV ISG, which might take this process further. Is the SDN role set to be absorbed or even shouldered aside by other approaches? Will it exist most usefully in a hybrid NFV/black box environment?
