About Me

Hi, I am Faisal Khan. A Telco cloud enthusiast, who is passionate to write about anything Telco cloud: Technology, current issues, perspectives!

My quest through this blog would be to write something about some of those issues and topics that confront the readers; to share something from my “experience” that can help someone out there, seeking answers.

For my day job I work in Planning & Architecture for a Mobile Telco in the field  of SDN, NFV and Transport.

Why you should read this blog ?

  • This comes from my first hand experience with the technology in Telco environment.
  • Not only do I speak from experience but I also have qualifications and certifications to support: from ONF, Openstack and MEF. Have a look here   https://www.linkedin.com/in/faisalk1
  • This is neither marketing fluff, nor a mouthpiece of a certain vendor !

So go ahead and  join my journey by subscribing to my mail list  by downloading the NFV mindmap at the home page and I will see you write there !

  11. Hi Faisal – Thanks for your great reference material. I’m new to the telco cloud space. One question I am trying to answer for my own understanding “in trying to organize the overlay landscape, what is a practical way of thinking about the different segments of overlay network types?”


  12. Dear Faisal,
    I just read your 8 year old “Are you asking these Questions from potential MPLS-TP Vendors?” Its the most useful thing I have read in years regarding MPLS-TP. I work for a utility and I would love to have a little conversation regarding MPLS-TP vendors please.
