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.

The NAB Show, a massive media and technology convention, is just around the corner and Red Hat will be there—we’ve got a booth and will demonstrate network functions virtualization (NFV), edge Internet of things (IoT), content storage, and content delivery network (CDN) management solutions all based on open source. We’ll also take the stage to talk video delivery technologies. Held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 22-27, the NAB Show is something you don’t want to miss and we hope you join us for Red Hat’s events there.

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.

No doubt, the network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) market is fast-growing and much of its early growth is being driven by communications service providers who are making the technologies part of their strategic priorities. In fact, Technology Business Report estimates the NFV and SDN market will reach as much as $158 billion by 2021. To get the most out of NFV, join us at this year’s Red Hat Summit, May 2-4 in Boston, for a presentation on best practices for successfully deploying NFV.

To stay competitive, today’s telecommunications companies need a flexible and agile IT environment—one that provides the interoperability, security and scalability needed to deliver seamless customer services. TelecomTV’s Martyn Warwick recently interviewed Darrell Jordan-Smith, vice president of global ICT sales at Red Hat, and Ian Hood, Red Hat’s chief architect for global service providers, at the 2017 Mobile World Congress to learn more about how open source can fulfill those needs and the benefits open source offers to communication service providers (CSPs).

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.

We’re gearing up for Red Hat Summit’s 13th year, bringing together customers, partners and community enthusiasts. The summit opens May 1 for full-day training classes and the conference runs May 2-4, featuring presentations, networking sessions, training and certification opportunities, hands-on labs led by subject matter experts, and a partner pavilion.

TelecomTV’s Tony Poulos caught up with Tim Yeaton, senior vice president & group executive of Red Hat’s infrastructure business group, at Mobile World Congress to delve into the hot topic of network functions virtualization (NFV). You can watch the full interview to learn why NFV has become such an important technology consideration for today’s communications service providers (CSPs).

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.
