Red Hat solutions for telecommunications

Secure, open IT infrastructure

Whether shifting business models to capture new revenue, meeting explosive growth and unpredictable peaks in bandwidth demands, or fighting intense competition, communications companies like yours are facing significant change and growth.

Red Hat offers telecoms secure, open IT infrastructure. It can help providers:

  • Gain cost and operational efficiency.
  • Reduce complexity.
  • Accelerate time to market.
  • Maintain flexibility and growth, even within private, hybrid, and public cloud environments.

Network functions virtualization (NFV)

Open source to the core, the Red Hat NFV platform delivers the only complete software suite available to successfully bring the benefits of NFV deployment to your telecom enterprise. We'll help you seamlessly build, deliver, update, and support your NFV software.

The platform empowers service providers with improved agility, simplicity, and elasticity in how new revenue-generating services are brought to market—all while reducing costs.

Under budget and under control

If you're like most telecom decision makers, you're being asked to significantly cut costs in today's tough economic conditions. How do you balance capital investment spending and operating expenses to choose the right platforms and technologies?

Happy customers, happy provider

As a telecom provider in a competitive industry, you're being forced to focus on a higher level of customer service while fighting to gain new users and maintain your current customer base. You need a reliable IT infrastructure for less downtime and better performance.

Bridging old to new

The evolution of telecom IT requires bundling legacy and emerging next-generation products and services while introducing new network technology. Wouldn't it be nice to standardize on a single network technology that supports all legacy and next-generation products and services?
