IEEE’s NGSON: SDN For Service Providers

SDN for service providers: It should be no surprise that industry analysts enjoy thinking about scenarios for the future, so I’ve been pondering a vision and roadmap for what could and should follow network architecture puzzle-pieces like federated controllers, generic switch-routers, Network Function Virtualization, virtualized appliances, and open orchestration (i.e., management). And how history has proven standards support (or lack thereof) can make or break a technology market (and of course that revenue thing, too). So when I saw a call for participation from our kindred spirits at the venerable IEEE, I had to shout-out my support for NGSON efforts. I’ll plan to update you on their progress in a future posting. Broader, related, and further along are standards for cloud portability and interoperability – P2301 and P2302 – http://standards.ieee.org/develop/project/2302.html
