Why NETCONF beats OpenStack when managing uCPE

I know this question reads like comparing apples with oranges. In fact, I want to compare a uCPE managed with NETCONF versus a uCPE managed as an OpenStack compute node. First, it’s worth looking at why people think using OpenStack is a good idea. OpenStack is THE open-source Virtualization Infrastructure Manager (VIM). As operators virtualize their data centers, OpenStack is pretty much the only solution if they want to move away from VMware. As operators move to OpenStack, they can extend it to manage Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) in branches. The benefit looks obvious: one team in charge of both data center and branch virtualization and a streamlined software layer to deploy and manage. In many ways, NETCONF vs OpenStack is a political decision. One that determines whether a combination of DevOps culture and IT teams will take power. OpenStack: Free as in freedom, not as in pri
It’s striking the number of service providers that have recently started promoting SD-WAN offers, especially given that there is little evidence amongst them of its commercial success. Popularity and perceived demand are high in the telecoms world, b

When looking at the virtualization landscape in its broader sense I can’t help seeing that the real problem is agility or rather lack of it. Take a look at SDN, whose main premise is to separate control from the data plane and thereby achieve high ag
