Watch this: Red Hat and Intel team up on NFVi deployments

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.

Telcos + OpenStack = Innovation

Why do telcos and OpenStack go so well together? What opportunities can telcos realize through an OpenStack implementation? And how does NFV, cloud and 5G fit into the telco business model? Red Hat’s vice president of telecommunications, Darrell Jordan-Smith, joined Stu Miniman, senior analyst at Wikibon and John Troyer, ‎chief reckoner at TechReckoning, in “The Cube” at OpenStack Summit this past May to talk telco and OpenStack.

Necessity drives innovation in NFV architecture.

Imagine if we could easily order secure network services we want online in the same amount of time it takes to brew a cortado – just minutes. Imagine no more. Lots of excitement and energy continue to surround production deployments of innovative cloud-based network functions virtualization (NFV) services and it is getting even better as enterprise and consumers customers can order, customize, and manage their network services with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Our long-time partners, Swisscom, Verizon, Telefonica, and NTT are expanding their cloud services in an effort to offer enormous savings and agility to their business customers, and to become among first movers that capture their share of the IT as a Service (ITaaS) opportunity that research firms forecast to be worth more than $150 billion in 2020.

Red Hat and Ericsson partner to advance modern, open source solutions for a changing ICT market.

The information and communications technology (ICT) market is transforming. Driven in large part by billions of mobile devices and connections around the world, the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile video and other modern communications, service providers are revamping their infrastructures to be more agile, open and scalable – and ready to support this brave new world. To that end, Red Hat and Ericsson have announced a broad alliance to deliver fully open source and production-ready cloud infrastructure, spanning OpenStack, software-defined networking (SDN) and software-defined infrastructure (SDI).

A path to Mobile Edge Computing with Red Hat OpenStack.

Mobile-edge computing (MEC) is a highly distributed computing architecture based on the deployment of small computing units in both outdoor and indoor radio access network (RAN) facilities at the edge of their mobile networks. Red Hat has joined a recently created European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) working group to help define MEC use-cases and architecture details as a complementary effort to the existing NFV and 5G initiatives.
