The Red Hat telco ecosystem delivers on NFV and OpenStack.

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.

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.

Red Hat at NAB Show, where open source meets video, media, and entertainment.

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.

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: Best practices for successfully deploying network functions virtualization

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.

Tune In: How open source enables telco companies to innovate while managing security and cost

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).
