Join us: Best practices for deploying NFV

Network functions virtualization (NFV) has revolutionized the way communications providers operate and deliver services. With a virtualized network infrastructure, service providers are able to move beyond traditional, proprietary hardware and achieve greater efficiency and agility, and reduce operational costs. However, the need to accommodate a wide range of potentially conflicting performance and reliability requirements on the same platform can be complex. Join us at the 2017 Red Hat Summit, May 2-4 in Boston, for a presentation on best practices for successfully deploying NFV.

Join us: Learn how Verizon containerized legacy applications on OpenShift

Legacy applications—which can stand in the path of revenue generation, particularly for telcos who need flexibility and agility to keep up with market demands—remain at the core of most enterprises today. While replacing these monoliths with modern architectures such as microservices and containers isn’t an easy “rip and replace” endeavor, there are paths to modernization that work. To explore best practices for modernizing your application portfolio, join us at this year’s Red Hat Summit, May 2-4 in Boston, for a presentation on how Verizon containerized the company’s legacy applications on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Join us: Security, audits, compliance and cryptography at Red Hat Summit 2017

Among the many challenges telco IT departments have is keeping up with the necessary security and compliance audits to safeguard their systems. And those challenges persist whether the IT environment is physical, virtual, in the cloud, uses containers, or some combination thereof. At this year’s Red Hat Summit in Boston, May 2-4, you’ll have the chance to learn how to mitigate those challenges and the security risks they pose. And you’ll get an inside look at how to establish and secure network communications with the cryptographic components of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat partners talk telco transformations during keynotes at Red Hat Summit 2017.

Telecommunications companies have reached a crossroad: fundamentally change their IT infrastructures or stay the course with legacy systems struggling to keep up with next-gen applications like the Internet of things (IoT) and big data, customers’ insatiable demand for mobility and bandwidth, and competitive threats from the new breed of communications service providers (CSPs) moving in. Telcos know this, and most are already digitally transforming their data centers and end-to-end networks. Join us at Red Hat Summit 2017 May 2-4 in Boston for four can’t-miss keynotes that spotlight the technologies, strategies and best practices at the center of these digital transformations.

Join us: Telcos, Digital Transformation, and Red Hat Summit 2017

There are few, if any, industries that haven’t been touched by digital technologies. Telecommunications is no exception. In fact, carriers are in the thick of a digital transformation, investing in new technologies like cloud, mobility, big data, video and more to improve operational efficiencies, better serve customers and reach new ones, and create new opportunities that build competitive strengths and profits. But in an intense market that’s rife with consolidation and new, non-traditional entrants, there’s a lot riding on these investments—and the carriers’ legacy IT infrastructures may not be nimble enough to support them. This is the topic at hand at a breakout session at this year’s Red Hat Summit, featuring experts from the telco industry.
