This year, 5G took center stage and, for the first time that I can remember, car manufacturers showed up at MWC to demonstrate their connected and autonomous cars that 5G should “easily” enable.
Companies migrating to an Agile development methodology have seen the benefits of accelerating deployments with smaller, more focused feature sets per release, but they have also experienced the pain of grouping those feature sets into workable code capable of being released to the public—without sacrificing quality.
If the transition to virtualized environments in the enterprise is any indicator, it appears that the transition to NFV in CSPs is only a question of when, not if. Why is this so? Well, for the same reason the enterprises did it: to be more agile.

There are a number of reasons for this failure including that the initiative was just an afterthought to an ongoing project or worse, part of an ill-defined long term strategy. Organizations with contact centers and IP telephony environments need to ensure their customers have […]
