While network functions virtualization (NFV) proof-of-concept deployments and education continue to rise, there is still much to be done to realize all the benefits offered by NFV. To help communication service providers (CSPs) find the right path to deployment, Timo Jokiaho, head of Red Hat’s EMEA telco technology office, recently joined Bryan Madden, director of marketing for Intel’s network platforms group, for an interview at the SDN NFV World Congress to share how the two companies are collaborating to support NFV infrastructure (NFVi) deployments.

When MyRepublic decided to overhaul its legacy IT architecture, it went all out for open source. The internet service provider (ISP), based in Singapore, chose Red Hat OpenStack Platform for its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), along with several other Red Hat solutions. Now, the ISP’s IT architecture is more flexible and scalable. Thanks to the simpler, automated deployment, it also can deliver new services more quickly and generate more business. And it reduced hardware costs by 30% and cut year-on-year TCO by double-digit percentages. You can read more about MyRepublic’s use of Red Hat solutions in its new cloud-based platform in this case study, and hear about the implementation in this video.

The obvious cannot be overstated: implementing OpenStack and software defined networking (SDN) at a large telco is a complex undertaking. That’s why it’s just plain good advice to listen in on the experiences of those who’ve already forged such an implementation, and here’s your chance. At the recent OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, Red Hat shared its lessons learned from a Red Hat OpenStack deployment with an SDN provider in the telecommunications market in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.
