My latest article for Service Provider Views came out yesterday, and focuses on Microsoft's Telco 2.0 strategy. My recent focus in this column has been on the platform play approach for service providers, and I'd have to say that Microsoft could be the biggest platform play of them all.
There are lots of ways to define and execute a platform play, and clearly, Microsoft has a lot to offer. This article provides an overview of what's driving their Telco 2.0 roadmap, and I'll touch on some of the specific offerings and bundles in the next writeup. You can read the article here, and as always, your comments are welcome.
