Like most other things cloud, the value is going to be much harder to find than the hype.

Subject: What do you think about the "cloudification" of mobile?
There was an article in the Economist (sorry if it's paywalled) about
Dish entering the mobile market using an AWS backend. I don't think that
AWS brings much more than compute for the most part so I don't really
get why this would be a huge win. A win maybe, but a huge win? I can
certainly see that not having tons of legacy and accreted inertia is big
win, but that's true of any disruptor. In the end they still need base
stations, spectrum, backhaul and all of that to run their network, right?
Am I missing something, or is this mainly hype?
