Senior Vice President, Marketing
J.B.S Haldane, the British geneticist, biologist and physiologist, has been quoted as saying that theories have four stages of acceptance: From “worthless nonsense” to “I always said so.” For network operators that have long ordered and deployed their control and application logic bundled tightly with proprietary hardware, the path to becoming softwarecentric can be viewed as more challenging than exciting. Conversely, over the top and “postcarrier” operators have known no other way than to build their core communications services in the public cloud – costeffectively generating new sources of revenue while obliterating legacy markets. Can traditional operators really adapt, and compete? Can a private or public cloud really host the brains of a realtime, programmable communications services? What will the softwarecentric architecture actually look like? And how soon will it be before traditional operators embrace this new network paradigm and utter the words, “The software telco. I always said so”?
