Thanks Alison and Carl, signing off now.

@Alison regarding evaluating suppliers.  I think it important to matiain regular contact with the equipment and software supplier industry to see what is developing in the market.  By keeping that regular contact you can evaulate solutions on paper. We also bring solutions into our lab envrionment and do technology prototypes to get first hand experience with the solutions out there.   It is also imprtnat to build aninfrastructure that allows you to plug in new components into your workflow so you can use differnt tools to solve different problems.

Steel

@Alison and @cmoberg  On the listeners post of the IHS paper:  I agree that each service provder's implementation of SDN will be different today but there are some tools that can be commonly used across multiple implementations to help speed a service provder's development.   We also think standardized interfaces to equipment will help over time (e.g. Netconf).    But the the early stages of maturity don't have to keep service providers from getting the benefits internally or with their customers.

Steel

Thanks for all the good info!

Steel

Well, I guess everyone was in listening mode, not chatting mode today! Thanks so much, Andrew and Carl. A great show. It's available on archive now. 

Steel

I wish we'd had time to go into the example of your daughter as the test subject! I love that story, @adugan. Definitely something I can relate to.

Steel

@AlisonDiana re listeners question. Agree that SD-WAN took off way faster than system-level standardization could keep up with. I.e. the lego block-level standards are pretty much there, but system-level is missing. Don't think it's a huge issue though, let market figure out first wave, then stds on what works.

Steel

@gbeth - If you're listening to the replay, I had a problem with my phone; it's fixed. Please forward or wait a second and all is okay.

Steel

@adugan Makes a lot of sense, we've found that starting with acting on a small set of (very) well known events in the loop and leaving the rest to human-assisted seems the way to go. No flag-day :-)

Steel

Audio is a bit broken up

 

Steel

How do you review new products, given the number of startups entering this space? (Thinking of the 'Virtualization's Got Talent' idea being promoted by three European SPs)

Steel

@cmoberg  We do have the ability to do human assisted.   There will be situations where there are certain network configurations that are not standard and dont fit the automation models that are built.  As you build a SDN control infrastructure it is important to that the possibility into account in your workflow and data management.  We can kick out orders to a manual process and them re-insert them into the flow.

Steel

Thanks @adugan and @cmoberg and @Alison! Great show today!

How would you address this listener's thoughts: 

Not a believer in large scale SDN WAN deployment due to lack of accepted standards for multi-vendor interoperability.  IHS thinks differently as per this post:

Steel

 Thanks so much, @adugan and @cmoberg! Awesome show.

Steel

Let the floodgates open! :-)

Steel

@adugan: great example! Have you been able to close the automation loop yet? Or human-assisted?

Steel

Thanks @adugan, that's very helpful!

@Kelsey: We have used it to automate the provisioining of packet filters at the edge of our network to manage and protect against DDOS attacks.  With that automatin you can push filters broadly and quickly to mitigate more quickly - that automation also reduces the human error component of putting those filters out

 

Steel

Q - How is improved automation affecting your approach to and ability to handle security threats?

Supporting multi-vendors

 

Steel

@sawad agreed, looking up and down the provisioning stack to see where commoditification has hit, and you are able to remove large SI-cost.

Steel

Ease and economics of Provisiong

Steel

@Vkhanna01   Agree faster service activation = more revenue.  Lots of benefits to automation.

 

Steel

Automated service delivery and faster revenue stream development

 

Steel

A good indicator (apart from the node count) is the number of changes per day and the complexity of each change.

Sorry about the earlier tech glitch. Old phones are best!

Steel

Audio is OK now.  Any slides today?

 

Steel

@Jeff I refreshed my browser, I can hear

Anyone else experiencing some packet loss with the audio? yone else experiencing some packet loss with the audio? 

Steel

Any slides accompanying this show?

 

Steel

Looking forward to today's radio show!

Steel
Nice to be here with all of my fellow panelists!
Steel

@Kelsey, aha, makes sense. Then let's shoot for platinum. Guessing voice contributions does not count :-)

Steel

@cmoberg it depends on how often you post to the chat board. I think the next level up is platinum.

Also very intersted to learn what "STEEL" by my name in the chat means :-)

Steel

This should be fun. Lots to talk about!

Steel

Excited to hear from Andrew and Carl today - should be a great conversation!

Looks as though some folk are tailgating. Welcome!

Steel

looking forward to the show today!

Platinum

Looking forward to hearing from Alison, Andrew and Carl this afternoon! How's everyone doing today?

Looking forward to the show!

Steel

Looking forward to the conversation - Andrew

Steel

Looking forward to the call

Steel

Planing for it.  Thanks.

Me either, @skarlas. This will be a great show, with lots of useful information.

Steel

I can;t wait for this show!
