One of the goals of ExperiaSphere from the start (as those who have followed the project and documentation know) is to blend IT and network behavior seamlessly into an experience. It seems to me that we’re seeing validation of the need for this sort of thing in the market today. The announcement that Verizon was going to add space for an additional 5500 racks of servers shows that IT components are big in the revenue plans for operators. The standards processes of today seem to me to be way behind on this issue.
Do people think that we need service-layer standards for creating IT/network behaviors that synch with each other, or should we let the market decide? ExperiaSphere doesn’t care; we can implement a standard model or a proprietary model, but which would be better?
