My other blog (BroadDev – Broadband Developments) is focused on Infrastructure 2.0. If you’re interested stop by. Here is a post that I wrote on Infrastructure 2.0. It was started by Lori MacVitte at F5 – F5 is doing some great work in quality social media.
The bottom line is the the network infrastructure is capable of being smarter. The opportunity (for companies) is to create or enable the “Dynamic Enterprise.”. Like Web 2.0 did for web sites and web apps, Infrastructure 2.0 will do for networks – addressable, discovery, intelligence, and policy will be at the center of the Infrastructure 2.0 equation. The network needs to be smarter and automated to new functionality and benefits.
