Could this extend to White Space control?

The first thing that popped into my mind when reading this was control of the dynamic networking in white space networks. This looks like an excellent control plane for that, given the appropriate abstraction of the radio networks. Do they have any plans for this?

This does seem like an ideal control plane....and it's interesting that so many carriers are looking to jump on this particular train...this is definitely an area to watch.

@Larry: Nice idea. Doesn't seem to be on their radar screens today. They are targetting deeper pockets, methinks

You are right, when telecom carriers are taking interest in this it will be surely a major opening of earning revenues, but I do not think there is that much vacuum in enterprise networks for carriers, as they already have very nice and developed enterprise networks.
