Watch This: Sprint, Red Hat talk OpenStack success for telcos

OpenStack has become a popular platform for telecommunications providers as they implement network functions virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud. Remember that survey last year, in which 86 percent of global telcos consider OpenStack essential or important to their success? Sprint has made the move to OpenStack; in fact, the telco is using it as the foundation for NFV across its data centers to better support network demand, improve network throughput and set the stage for advanced network functions. At this week’s Openstack Summit in Sydney, Sprint took the stage with Red Hat to talk about its use of OpenStack for NFV.
