DALLAS – June 3, 2016 – PRLog — Greg Whelan, principal of Greywale Insights, will be participating in a panel discussion on The Economics of NFV/SDN on Monday June 6th at the TIA Network of the Future Conference. “The access network represents the biggest economic impacting opportunity of virtualization” , said Greg Whelan, principal of Greywale Insights, “Industry initiatives, such as CORD and ONOS, represent a game changing innovative approach to the largest and most challenging part of the service providers network.”
The access network, or “last mile” is a challenging business. It has thousands of miles of facilities (wires) that radiate from headends and hubs and terminate in nearly every home and building in the serving area. It has specialized OSP (Outside Plant) electronics deployed in cabinets, underground vaults and mounted to utility poles. Adding to the challenges are onerous federal, state and local regulations that hinder flexibility. Then you have real operational challenges including lightning, floods, backhoe fades and squirrel chews.
“The virtual access network can’t solve squirrel chews,” Whelan continues, “but it will positively change the economics of access and benefit the entire broadband ecosystem.”
