Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
@mhhf1ve I agree, but some people send their children to private schools just so that they can be accepted into Ivy League schools. They do value that camaraderie with those of the same level of intelligence and, yes, the networking with those people.

Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
Are Ivy League educations worth as much as they used to be? MIT offers free courses, and there are so many more ways to learn... It really comes down to the person learning, not the school where it happened, no? I suppose there is some benefit to meeting other smart people in college and being able to network with them later.

Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
@batye My nieces and nephews all have Ivy League educations, and I saw none of them go into the field they were studying for. In fact, my nephew changed his major really late in the game, and now is in the technology field in Silicon Valley!

No Auto
"A quarter of the world's service providers do not plan to have all or most of their networks automated by 2025"

I wonder what the effect will be at the consumer level?

Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
Education for the new technology is going to be big business, athough maybe not as easily said as done. Trying to predict and gear up for what appears to be the next big "need" is not always a sure thing when the technology and demands for workers change so rapidly.

Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
@michelle Maybe someday there will be a way to 1. not make a college education so prohibitively expensive. 2. combine a trade and university education together somehow. Perhaps major technology companies such as Apple and Google can help.

It's the distinction of having a university education that people fall for. It's what has been ingrained in us from the time we are in kindergarten, and what parents save up for in "college funds." Right, the kids are confused when they get there, and confused and burdened down with debt when they get out! How does that help anyone?

Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
Indeed. The problem is compounded for the students who have no direction when they enter and continue directionless until graduation. Completing an education can be good for some industries, but not all need college educated folks.

Re: SPs Spending Big on Network Automation
@michelle  It's not true that a college education brings success. I've attended two universities, one to get a bachelor's degree and the other a master's degree. While it does broaden your mind, it doesn't necessarily broaden your horizons. Many people come out of college confused and burdened down by loans. People are going to realize that training for trade industries may be the direction for them to go.
