Red Hat talks open telco at PTC ‘18

Technology innovations and the intensifying march of digitization are disrupting and redefining enterprises across all industries. That includes communication service providers (CSPs), who are forging ahead with digital transformations to accelerate the development of new services, improve customers’ experience and optimize business value. As such, CSPs are exploring advanced technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of everything (IoT), and 5G, and they are shoring up their cybersecurity initiatives to support these new technologies. Join Red Hat’s telecommunications team at Pacific Telecommunications Council Conference 2018, PTC ’18, January 21-24 in Honolulu to learn about how open telco is the right foundation for digital business.

Red Hat’s Ian Hood, chief technologist of global telco; Azhar Sayeed, chief architect; and Narendra Narang, principal solutions specialist architect, will present a workshop session on “Open Telco In the Era of Digital Disruption,” Sunday, January 21 from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. Attendees will learn how CSPs are leveraging open source technologies in their digital transformation journey. The presenters will cover:

  • The Open Telco in the Era of Digital Disruption
  • The Open Telco Transformation Journey
  • The Open Telco – Uncover blockchain opportunities

On Wednesday, January 24 from 9:00 – 10:15 a.m., Red Hat’s Azhar Sayeed will be joined by Hanen Garcia, global telco solutions manager at Red Hat, for a session on “Open Telco Transformation.”

The presenters will share how CSPs are leveraging open source technologies and feature two different use cases: One on building an infrastructure for 5G deployments and another on implementing a virtual central office.

Attendees will learn how open source software can be used to build a platform that can deliver new services and serve as a baseline for building 5G mobile networks, and how 5G components are being designed to operate in a cloud native environment. Azhar and Hanen will also discuss how this platform can be built, what is needed, and identify the gaps in delivery.

We hope to see you at PTC ’18 for these sessions, networking and more!
