Deborah Bryant keynotes on open source in telecom at AstriCon 2018

Growing demand for streaming video, ever-expanding smartphone capabilities, virtual reality, the internet of things (IoT), and other next-generation technologies are pushing telecommunications service providers to adopt new business models and deliver more advanced services.
