Plenty of telcos have either already committed to, or are actively investigating, network functions virtualization (NFV) running on OpenStack platform to help them increase network agility and mitigate costs. We at Red Hat firmly believe NFV + OpenStack is the infrastructure of modern telecommunications.

Telco is getting a lot of attention at Red Hat Summit, taking place May 2-4 in Boston! Join us on Thursday for an informal gathering to discuss the latest trends facing our industry, and stick around for our afternoon session entitled “Are you being served? Containers, microservices and the cloud-native telco,” where we’ll dive into benefits and implementation strategies around these topics.

There will be so much to do at this year’s Red Hat Summit in Boston. So, we wanted to draw your attention to three telco demonstrations—all of which showcase solutions designed to give communications service providers the automation, management and performance they need as they transform their IT infrastructures with software-defined, open-source data centers and networks.

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.

As telcos continue to scale their cloud deployments, they are also seeking ways to streamline operational control by managing these systems with a higher degree of predictability. At Red Hat Summit 2017, May 2-4 in Boston, join us for a presentation on ways to do just that.

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.

It’s often said that one of the strengths of open source technology is the community, or ecosystem, that shapes and advances it. We contend that’s Red Hat’s strength as well, and to illustrate, our ecosystem of partners is working with us to make the promise of network functions virtualization (NFV) real. To wit: our NFV ecosystem is loaded with network equipment providers, independent software vendors (ISVs), software-defined networking (SDN) providers and telcos, and momentum continues to grow.

Four days. As many as 100,000 attendees from 200 countries. And more than 2,200 exhibitors, including Red Hat. This is Mobile World Congress 2017. At the conference, which got its start in 1987 as GSM World Congress before the European telcos had even agreed on what 1G would look like, 5G was one of the hot topics. MWC 2017 attendees were also talking about plenty of other next-gen technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and more. A walk around the show floor and there was plenty to see and do: robots, a massive sculpture created by IBM’s Watson using AI, connected cars, VR experiences and much more.

Red Hat made several announcements at this week’s Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona that underscore its strong commitment—and the global telco industry’s growing support—to open source, cloud and network functions virtualization (NFV). The announcements include MyRepublic’s use of Red Hat open source solutions to turn its legacy, proprietary IT environment into an open hybrid cloud and Altice’s use of NFV to build out a virtualized platform. Red Hat also announced new and extended partnerships with World Wide Technology (WWT) and Ericsson.
