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. And more and more, they are pursuing open source solutions to support these efforts.
Red Hat’s Deborah Bryant, senior director of open source and standards, will explore this shift and the dramatic role open source has played as a disruptor in telecommunications, in her keynote presentation at AstriCon 2018, October 9-11, at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. The Asterisk PBX Project for which the event is named is one of the oldest and well-established open source community projects in telecommunications.
Join Deborah Thursday, October 11, in Osceola Ballroom E at 9:00 a.m., for "Open Source in Telecom: What a Difference a Decade Makes." She will discuss the growing participation of traditional service providers in open source projects, the introduction of modern practices such as DevOps at scale, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), and new approaches to security in open source environments. Looking forward, Deborah also will discuss some of the industry implications of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence.
