Red Hat at NAB Show, where open source meets video, media, and entertainment.

The NAB Show, a massive media and technology convention, is just around the corner and Red Hat will be there—we’ve got a booth and will demonstrate network functions virtualization (NFV), edge Internet of things (IoT), content storage, and content delivery network (CDN) management solutions all based on open source. We’ll also take the stage to talk video delivery technologies. Held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 22-27, the NAB Show is something you don’t want to miss and we hope you join us for Red Hat’s events there.

Red Hat partners talk telco transformations during keynotes at Red Hat Summit 2017.

Telecommunications companies have reached a crossroad: fundamentally change their IT infrastructures or stay the course with legacy systems struggling to keep up with next-gen applications like the Internet of things (IoT) and big data, customers’ insatiable demand for mobility and bandwidth, and competitive threats from the new breed of communications service providers (CSPs) moving in. Telcos know this, and most are already digitally transforming their data centers and end-to-end networks. Join us at Red Hat Summit 2017 May 2-4 in Boston for four can’t-miss keynotes that spotlight the technologies, strategies and best practices at the center of these digital transformations.

Join us: How to build an event monitoring data pipeline for storage microservices

As telcos continue to scale their cloud deployments, they are also seeking ways to streamline operational control by managing these systems with a higher degree of predictability. At Red Hat Summit 2017, May 2-4 in Boston, join us for a presentation on ways to do just that.

Tune In: How open source enables telco companies to innovate while managing security and cost

To stay competitive, today’s telecommunications companies need a flexible and agile IT environment—one that provides the interoperability, security and scalability needed to deliver seamless customer services. TelecomTV’s Martyn Warwick recently interviewed Darrell Jordan-Smith, vice president of global ICT sales at Red Hat, and Ian Hood, Red Hat’s chief architect for global service providers, at the 2017 Mobile World Congress to learn more about how open source can fulfill those needs and the benefits open source offers to communication service providers (CSPs).

Tune In: Mobile World Congress panel on the real value of cellular IoT

Red Hat’s Sanjay Aiyagari, solutions architect of telecommunications & NFV, joined Mobeen Khan, IoT strategy & product management executive at AT&T, and Lawrence Latham, COO of everynet for a panel discussion on the real value of cellular Internet of Things (IoT) at the recent Mobile World Congress. The group spoke with TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels about connectivity options, IoT deployment scenarios and the future promise of 5G.

Telcos can reduce TCO over the long haul with open source, new study finds

For telcos, deploying open source network functions virtualization (NFV) is proving more cost-effective, agile and efficient, that’s according to a new report by ACG Research, sponsored by Red Hat, Big Switch Networks, F5 Networks and Dell EMC. The report found the five-year cumulative total cost of ownership, or TCO, of an open architecture platform to be $22.7 million, which is roughly half (53 percent) of the $43 million TCO for a tightly bundled platform (defined by the report as a stricter coupling of elements in a design, often bound by a proprietary implementation).

Why upstream contributions matter when developing open source NFV solutions.

salmon

Why do salmon swim upstream? Scientists have deduced that if the riverbed was a good place for them to start, it will suffice for their offspring. Thus they spawn and their offspring return to the ocean to feed. But what if some of the fish, en route to the sea, took a tributary at a forriverforkk in the river? They might get lost, fail to reach the ocean and perhaps starve or exhaust themselves trying to find the original route. Developing software using open source principles follows a similar theory.

MWC 2017: Meet up with Red Hat at this year’s premier mobile industry event.

At what is deemed the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, Mobile World Congress 2017, Red Hat will join as many as 100,000 people in Barcelona, Spain Feb. 27 – March 2 to talk about current and future mobile technologies, next-gen services and innovation. A Red Hat team of more than 80 people will be on hand – at our booth 2G30 in Hall 2 for demos, networking and meetings as well as for presentations and panels during the conference – to highlight our commitment to advance innovation in open source and the information and communications technologies (ICT) industry.

Containers can help energy, oil and gas companies accelerate adoption of cloud-based HPC.

More companies are adopting cloud-based high performance computing (HPC), especially in industries that require significant computational power. The energy, oil and gas markets are no exception. After all, they rely on advanced computer-aided engineering (CAE), advanced data analytics, seismic processing, and other data- and computationally-demanding applications. But implementing cloud-based HPC will require new approaches that deliver greater flexibility and ease deployments. One such solution? Containers.

For Swisscom, an open source cloud means revenue, faster service delivery and innovation.

Swisscom, a leading telco and IT services provider in Switzerland, had a clear vision: simplify its internal IT infrastructure. So several years ago, the telco mapped a cloud strategy to consolidate IT functions onto one platform, then enlisted Red Hat to help it build a secure, flexible, and unified foundation using open source technology and open standards. The result? A cloud environment based on OpenStack that’s accelerating development and delivery of new services for customers, boosting revenue and advancing innovation.
