In modern times, financial markets are sensitive to any number of factors – geopolitics, economic data, shifting prices on commodities, regional unrest, even market sentiment. And that sensitivity puts pressure on financial firms also contending with globalization, market competition and changes in regulation and international capital movements. To thrive amid all that – and work smarter, better and faster – consider IT automation. Want to know more? Check out this Red Hat solution brief.
Red Hat will be hosting or present at several events in North America over the next few months. As always, stop by to chat with our subject matter experts and hear about how Red Hat is helping communication service providers with their digital transformation projects. We look forward to you joining us there!

Telcos are starting to look more closely at using containers, especially as their network functions virtualization (NFV) tests and trials mature and start moving into production. TelecomTV talked with Chris Wright, Red Hat’s VP and CTO, who shares this view, and why telcos should start preparing for containerization, in an interview.
At this spring’s NAB Show, April 7-12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Red Hat will be there to share some cool telco demos in our booth and participate in a Sunday afternoon session on live TV and virtualization.
Earlier this year, the Linux Foundation announced that certain open source projects – notably OPNFV, ODL, ONAP and FD.IO – merged with the Linux Foundation Networking Fund (aka LFN). Because of this, events associated with these projects have been rolled up into the Open Networking Summit (ONS) which is run twice a year. The NA summit was held in Los Angeles the last week of March, 2018, and the EU summit will be held in Amsterdam the last week of September, 2018.
The Open Networking Summit (ONS) North America is here, and we hope you’ll join us next week, March 26-29 at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown as we discuss software defined networking (SDN), secure devops, container networking, 5G infrastructure, and more. ONS brings together enterprises, service providers and cloud providers to discuss the future of open source networking, covering topics like SDN, network functions virtualization (NFV), orchestration and cloud automation, and the internet of things (IoT).
The communications service provider (CSP) industry continues to show signs of disruption and transformation. Many CSPs are abandoning the closed, proprietary infrastructures of the past for more agile and open ones in order to offer services more quickly and support tech-savvy customers with a host of new and evolving expectations. These CSPs are making plans for 5G, continuing deployment of network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN), and are moving forward with new services to use edge computing.
Automation has become an essential component of strategic modernization and digital transformation, particularly for today’s forward-looking communications service providers (CSPs). Join us Tuesday, March 20 as we explore router compliance and security governance in the first part of our telecom network automation webinar series.
It was quite the hectic but extremely successful week here at Mobile World Congress 2018 – the world’s largest mobile industry gathering with more than 100,000 attendees, which added to the hubbub of cultural, sporting, entertainment, industry and gastronomical diversity that is Barcelona.
The financial services industry’s need for flexible and extensible hybrid cloud continues to be a priority to help them better manage their expanding footprint of next-gen enterprise applications as part of their digital transformations. Meanwhile, customer expectations and new regulations around customer convenience and privacy are testing the limits of legacy banking technology platforms. Join us March 7 for a webinar exploring how microservices, containerization, and APIs bring opportunity for increased agility in the financial services environment.
