At what is deemed the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, Mobile World Congress 2017, Red Hat will join as many as 100,000 people in Barcelona, Spain Feb. 27 – March 2 to talk about current and future mobile technologies, next-gen services and innovation. A Red Hat team of more than 80 people will be on hand – at our booth 2G30 in Hall 2 for demos, networking and meetings as well as for presentations and panels during the conference – to highlight our commitment to advance innovation in open source and the information and communications technologies (ICT) industry.
Specifically, we’ll be talking about how our open source solutions, and those of our partner ecosystem, can deliver cost efficiencies and flexibility to meet unique and changing business needs, foster innovation and enable quicker time to market. Red Hat solutions are designed to meet the security, availability, performance, scalability, and deployability requirements of carrier-grade operations and include network functions virtualization (NFV), big data, mobile application development, cloud, content delivery networks, video on-demand, storage and machine-to-machine (M2M) services/internet of things (IOT).
Be sure to catch Red Hat’s Tim Yeaton, senior VP, infrastructure business, who will be speaking on an NFV panel on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 3:30 – 4:40 p.m. in Hall 4, Auditorium 3. NFV: A Re-Examination will look at new opportunities being created through the use of network virtualization to lower telco network costs and boost flexibility, the development of differing yet potentially complementary NVF technical directions and their implications, and whether NFV is advancing in ways that best meet the telco industry’s requirements.
Moderated by Grant Lenahan, partner and principal analyst with Appledore Research Group, the session also includes Diego Lopez, chair of NFV ISG, ETSI; Daniel Joseph Barry, VP positioning and chief evangelist, Napatech; Alan Carlton, MD and VP, InterDigital Europe; Kishen Mangat, senior director, mobility group, Cisco; and Neil Holmquist, VP of marketing and product strategy cloud and IP BU, Spirent.
We’ll see you there!
