Network Virtualization, Alive and Gaining Steam
I attended Light Reading’s “ NFV & Carrier SDN” conference last week in Denver. There were more than a couple of heated exchanges among industry leaders on the importance and differences between industry, vendor, and operator led standards and implementations.

Rio 2016 Football Final and Closing Ceremonies: Facebook wins the Overall App Gold

I wrote about the Opening Ceremonies here, and showed how Facebook properties dominated mobile network traffic for that event. Unfortunately for other social networks, that trend continued for both the semifinal and final football (soccer for Americans) events and the Closing Ceremonies.

Facebook wins the social networking gold medal at Rio 2016 Opening Ceremonies

The Olympics kicked off in Brazil over the weekend (in case you live in a cave and missed the news), and rather than talk about the impact on Netflix (which dipped but not as severe as the 2012 London Olympics), I thought we could do something different.

Pokemon Go, the new Olympic hero!

Niantic timed their entry into the Olympics perfectly – as Pokemon Go is now available in Brazil. The game is so popular that the Mayor of Rio actually begged that the game be released in Brazil in time for the Olympics.
