Red Hat highlights NFV, open telco, and cloud for telcos at next week’s OpenStack Summit

Join Red Hat this week at OpenStack Summit, May 21-24, 2018, in Vancouver, BC. We will be presenting on a variety of telecommunications topics including network functions virtualization (NFV), creating an open telco model, cloud-native applications, and more. Red Hat’s Margaret Dawson, vice president of portfolio product marketing, will also be presenting at the Women of OpenStack Networking Lunch, sponsored by Red Hat, on Wednesday, May 23 at 12:30 p.m.

There are also a number of sessions that are relevant to Telco and related digital transformation projects.
