米国調査会社ヘビーリーディング社(Heavy Reading)の調査レポート「ソートリーダーシップカウンシル:オープンソースや自動化は仮想化を促進しない」は、自動化に関連する仮想化、セキュリティ、マルチアクセスエッジコンピューティング (MEC)について10の質問を行っている。その回答から通信サービスプロバイダは、自動化、特にオープンソースに関する側面において不満に感じているものの、仮想化計画の開発は継続していることが明確になった。

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY(PDF)

The message from service providers participating in the survey for this month's Thought Leadership Council (TLC) is clear: They're on the road to virtualization, but it's neither a certain path nor one that is necessarily being made easier to traverse through automation.

The overwhelming majority of communications service providers (CSPs) admit they're uncertain how they'll automate the orchestration of services with both physical and virtual resources. Nevertheless, of all available options to do so, none of the CSPs on this month's panel have plans to incorporate Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) or Open Source MANO (OSM).

Panelists were almost equally divided in their attitudes toward open source and security automation. About 40 percent of CSPs say their companies consider open source and the deployment of security automation critical for ensuring the interoperability of automated solutions from best-of-breed vendors. The same number of CSPs say it's important, but not critical, to integrate open-source solutions for first-wave commercial deployments. However, the remaining panelists say deploying security automation isn't important at all because mass adoption of open source won't occur for several years.

The focus group covered in Thought Leadership Council: Open Source, Automation Not Easing Path to Virtualization was asked 10 questions about virtualization, security and multi-access edge computing (MEC) in relation to automation. The results clearly indicate that CSPs are frustrated with certain aspects of automation, especially as it relates to open source, but are continuing to develop plans for virtualization.

TLC members were asked about their company's attitudes toward network and service automation. Results are shown in the following excerpt. Almost half of panelists, 46 percent, said they can't keep up with the overwhelming number of competing open-source and standards initiatives. Just more than 30 percent of TLC members believe that no single organization can develop something upon which the entire industry can agree.

CSPs See ROI From Virtualization Despite Continued Frustrations

Heavy Lifting Analyst Notes

Virtualization is paying off for the service providers that are early adopters, according to the latest results from a Thought Leadership Council (TLC) survey. About 30% of this month's panelists say they've already virtualized their networks and are seeing demonstrable return on investment (ROI).

Equally encouraging is the fact that just under a quarter of this month's panel say they will have monetized their virtualized networks by the end of this year. Nevertheless, the bulk of these communication services providers (CSPs) continue to be stymied by the plethora of open source initiatives on the road to automation, as found in Thought Leadership Council: Open Source, Automation Not Easing Path to Virtualization.

For this report, council members were asked ten questions about virtualization, security and multi-access edge computing (MEC) in relation to automation. Many of the results from this report will be shared by Heavy Reading analysts at the upcoming NFV & Carrier SDN: Automation & Monetization event in Denver, September 24-26.

According to the report, CSPs do not yet agree on a single attitude toward automation security. In fact, TLC panelists were almost evenly split between those who feel it's critical to ensure they can interoperate automated solutions from best-of-breed vendors, those that say it's important but not critical for first-wave commercial deployments, and those who say it's not important at all because mass adoption of open source won't happen for years.

Almost half of panelists say their companies will implement MEC by 2020, according to the report.

One CSP, who said MEC is "important but not critical" to his company, commented, "We are working to establish the platform first and focusing on simple and less security-impacting services. It will become more critical as we attempt to move closer to end-user management."

TLC members also sounded off about the biggest operational challenges their companies face for managing distributed resources as a result of virtualization and resources moving to the edge. One CSP commented, "Additional manpower will be required for operation and maintenance of those physical servers to support virtualized functions at distributed locations. Currently, all critical functions reside at centralized locations."

Another summarized, "It's not clear to me that there is a business case for which network elements or functions can move to the edge."

The Thought Leadership Council is a unique Heavy Reading research initiative founded in August 2017, in which a panel of highly targeted CSPs participate in strategic research surveys on topics like service assurance, automation, 5G and IoT. TLC members receive private invitations to take part in completely anonymous surveys, which enables them to provide insights that might otherwise go undisclosed.
