That's a really good point and something that neither Dell nor Intel really tackled in their talks. I'm curious if they expect a third party to operate security or if  they'll build it in at the ground level somehow.

Perhaps some of the discussion in this article is still largely wishful thinking on the parts of Dell and Intel to get a bigger footprint in an area where they don't really have that big a play yet.  At the same time, if the carriers can use them to squeeze their traditional supplier base then its all good competition (or at least perceived competition).

I've listened to lots of SDN talks in the last couple years and had not heard anyone bring this up--but it makes sense to me. Consider my antenna up!
