The AI Ocean: How AI applications will travel and thrive in mobile networks

It’s been the stuff of science fiction and our imagination for years, but artificial intelligence (AI) is finally getting its due. Already used to express and understand human speech, drive autonomous cars, and interpret highly complex data, AI has the potential to revolutionize all aspects of our lives. But that’s only half the story. While there has been considerable attention paid to the algorithms and analytics that will comprise these applications, the question remains – what ecosphere will support this new form of life?

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.

Watch this: Telco panel on the network edge

For communications service providers (CSPs), the network edge is high stakes. There’s opportunity to create new services, better customer experiences, and more revenue, but there’s also plenty of challenges. Recently, in a repurposed industrial space directly adjacent to the on-off ramp for the 101 Freeway over the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, five execs – from Red Hat, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Intel, Orange and Deutsche Telekom – joined on a panel hosted by TelecomTV to discuss those opportunities and challenges, and give some insights on the future of mobile edge computing (MEC).

Join Us: Agile IT with IaC

Plenty of enterprises are digitally transforming their operations, and infrastructure as code (IaC) can play a pivotal role in the journey. With IaC, operations teams can automatically manage and provision through code, rather than using a manual process. Much in the same way software developers use application platforms, they can implement DevOps principles such as continuous integration, automated testing, code review, and upgrades for infrastructure deployment. As part of our webinar series on defining and implementing a simplified, fully automated private cloud, we next explore delivering agile IT through automation and IaC. In this October 10 webinar, you’ll learn how to effectively develop and deliver a cloud-native platform and cloud-ready infrastructure using IaC concepts.

Red Hat telco goes big down under at OpenStack Summit Sydney.

OpenStack Summit in Sydney is a month away and Red Hat’s telco team is gearing up for a big presence this year. Red Hat is participating in 10 telco-specific presentations at the summit, on topics ranging from distributed monitoring and analysis, to SD-WAN architecture for OpenStack, to ETSI spec requirements. And of course, we’ll have a variety of sessions on NFV topics. There’s even a user implementation session to share best practices and lessons learned from a real-world OpenStack implementation at a large telco.

We hope to see you in Australia next month, Nov. 6-8, at the Sydney International Convention Centre. Join thousands of people from more than 60 countries, all there to talk about the mix of open technologies and architecting and operating of OpenStack clouds. We’ll be sharing more in coming weeks, but in the meantime visit the OpenStack Summit event site for registration details and a preview of the summit agenda.
