Efforts from different sectors in the telecom industry are being made to create new sets of recommendations and standards, so that network operators will have options and toolkits to help build the networks of the future. FlexE is one these toolkits. Starting from OIF, FlexE made its way into ITU-T and is slowly making its way into IETF, ensuring continuous development of the technology.
FlexE’s deployment has initially appeared in the more aggressive and innovative sectors in the market and industry, where the transport networks are built in advance, anticipating new services.
However, as these brand new services become more of a norm, we will see FlexE making its way to the rest of the world, thanks to its versatility and flexibility.
