I'm jumping on a plane Saturday morning to head to Austin, Texas (my first ever visit to the Lone Star State). For sure I'm looking forward to the renowned hospitality, the live music, the Texas barbecues... but the main reason I'll be there is the Big Communications Event (BCE) on May 24 and 25 and it's shaping up to be a doozy.

As Light Reading has already established, 2016 is set to be the year when NFV capabilities emerge from being at the heart of multiple proofs of concept (PoCs) and start to play a key role in next-generation communications service provider and large enterprise networks. (See NFV: Coming, Ready or Not!)

Developing virtual customer premises equipment (CPE) capabilities has been the goal of many traditional Ethernet equipment vendors during the past few NFV-heady years: The market could see very clearly that dedicated CPE boxes were set to be replaced with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) white box hardware that would house multiple virtual network ...

I've known Steve Vogelsang for more than 20 years, since his time at FORE Systems, the ATM pioneer (that's "asynchronous transfer mode," not "automatic teller machine," for you young'uns in our audience), and then as a founder at edge router startup Laurel Networks.

The New IP Agency (NIA) is picking up momentum with the addition of five new members, as it continues to blaze new trails toward SDN/NFV interoperability with Phase Three of its operating plan.
Iain Morris, News Editor, 3/9/2016
PARIS -- MPLS/SDN/NFV World Congress -- Colt has urged network vendors to work together through the New IP Agency (NIA) to speed up NFV deployments by the service provider community.
"The NIA will help us to get a cleaned-up picture of standards and implementations."

-- Axel Clauberg, Vice President of Transport, Aggregation and IP and Fixed Access, Deutsche Telekom --
"I attended the [NIA] announcement in Chicago. It was fascinating and truly informative. After that event, I concluded either we virtualize or vaporize."

-- Anand Singh, Director of Architecture, CenturyLink --
"NIA will shorten our cycles for the RFPs, the testing, and for seeing who does what, and what works with whom."

-- Nico Fischbach, Director of Strategy, Architecture and Innovation, Colt Technology Services Group --
"BT supports VNF-NFVI interoperability testing by the NIA. We are concerned with the growing diversity of NFVI and specializations that limit the portability of VNFs. This growing diversity leads to increasing operational complexity and costs."

-- Peter J. Willis, Chief Researcher, BT --
"The Cloudification of Network Functions and the change in our production models is probably the biggest transformation ever hitting the Telco industry. In a world build on Open Standards and Open Source, testing and integration remains a major effort - an independent entity like NIA driving this can deliver huge value to us as network operators and our vendors."

-- Axel Clauberg, VP of Transport, Aggregation and IP and Fixed Access, Deutsche Telekom --
