The Disaggregated Agile Telco – Faster, Better, Cheaper?

February 21, 2019 / Roy Chua

Last week’s blog post on containers and telco elicited a much larger than usual number of responses from readers – particularly those at telcos. Many privately reflected that they wished their companies were more nimble and did a better job of mimicking successful cloud companies like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. To be fair to telcos, there are many who innovate, plus building out large wireless and wireline networks is not an easy task. I’m sure we’ll see some breakout examples of telco innovation next week at MWC Barcelona. I realize many of you are busy preparing for your trek to Barcelona, Spain, and so I thought I would write a follow-on to last week’s post that, hopefully, makes us all think a little differently as we head out.
