Industry Use Cases


Whether shifting business models to capture new revenue, meeting explosive growth and unpredictable peaks in bandwidth demands, or fighting intense competition, communications companies are facing significant change and growth.

Red Hat offers telecommunications companies secure, open IT infrastructure and the only complete software suite available to successfully bring the benefits of NFV deployment to the telecom enterprise.

The Red Hat Embedded Program can help partners:

  • Gain cost and operational efficiency.
  • Reduce complexity.
  • Accelerate time to market.
  • Maintain flexibility and growth, even within private, hybrid, and public cloud environments.


Healthcare device solutions have varied architectures and capabilities, but all have a common objective—to measure physical characteristics and collect information. Red Hat solutions can help suppliers of health information technology solutions, services, devices and hardware improve data collection from local medical devices to hospital servers and then on to central hosted data centers. Business rules based on patient care scenarios can be added to create alerts and actions. This results in:

  • Real-time reaction to data from diverse machine types in hospitals.
  • Value-added solutions which optimize workflow, transform the patient experience and improve the quality of care delivery.
  • Comprehensive enterprise-wide approach for device connectivity, alarm management, and care team communication.

The Red Hat Embedded Program brings::

  • Performance: The speed to support real-time measurements and rapid processing required in medical device scenarios.
  • Reliability: Confidence to handle the demands of a medical environment, where failure could have dire consequences.
  • Security and compliance: Protection of HIPAA data, and a basis for meeting regulatory requirements.
  • Support: Maintain a high level of responsiveness for healthcare devices deployed in life-and-death situations.
