While network functions virtualization (NFV) proof-of-concept deployments and education continue to rise, there is still much to be done to realize all the benefits offered by NFV. To help communication service providers (CSPs) find the right path to deployment, Timo Jokiaho, head of Red Hat’s EMEA telco technology office, recently joined Bryan Madden, director of marketing for Intel’s network platforms group, for an interview at the SDN NFV World Congress to share how the two companies are collaborating to support NFV infrastructure (NFVi) deployments.

Deploying network functions virtualization (NFV) offers a host of benefits for telecommunication service providers, such as lowering costs, increasing flexibility, and speeding time-to market. And some of the largest service providers in the world are already reaping those benefits, by transforming from big-iron networks to cloud-based, software centric virtualized networks. Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, December 12 at 11 a.m. ET to get your business on the path to NFV.

To gain maximum benefit from cloud transformation, communication service providers must evolve from virtualization of network functions to truly cloud-native design. This evolution delivers improved scalability, faster innovation and a more rapid response to customer demands. Join us for a webinar with Nokia on Tuesday, December 5 as we discuss requirements, benefits and use case examples of going cloud native with open source.

The beauty of open source software is that anyone can download the code and then install, configure and use it. The challenge is doing so in a production environment at scale. That’s what communications service providers (CSPs) face as they build out platforms at scale to operate cloud environments that serve millions of users. These cloud platforms include compute, networking and storage hardware as well as software to automate, manage, monitor and secure the platform.

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.

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).

In just two weeks, people from around the world will gather in Sydney, Australia for the OpenStack Summit Nov. 6-8. At the three-day conference for IT business leaders, cloud operators and developers covering the open infrastructure landscape, expect to hear and learn about all about modern clouds, and the open technologies being used to build them, including OpenStack, Kubernetes, Docker, Ansible, Ceph, OVS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, and more. Red Hat’s telco team is participating in 10 presentations at the summit. For a closer look at the presentations on network functions virtualization (NFV), read on!

Next week, tens of thousands of people, from dozens of countries, will gather at Futurecom 2017 in São Paulo, Brazil, for what’s been billed as the largest and most qualified information and communications technology (ICT) event in Latin America. Red Hat will be there – as a sponsor, with a booth, and as speakers. The show will run Oct. 2-5 at the Transamerica Expo Center and will cover everything from digital transformation and IoT to artificial intelligence and customer experience.
