Open source: A framework for digital services modernization

Technical and cultural benefits for telecommunications companies who participate in open source communities

Open source provides a host of benefits to help digital service providers evolve technologically and culturally. Engaging directly with open source communities not only allows you quicker access to innovation but also gives you insights into how your own organizations can work more collaboratively.

Additional benefits to digital service providers using open source include:

  • Open source participation can help foster a culture of collaboration.
  • Supported open source distributions provide a solid, more secure foundation for network infrastructure, and data and application management.
  • Working with unsupported open source software can create unnecessary risk.
