Summit 16: Keynote: HPE Presentation- Transforming Communication Service Provider Networks via Open Source and Open Ecosystems


Published on

If Communications Service Providers are to achieve the Nirvana of networks composed of interoperable, “best-of-breed” components, and if they want the journey to get there to be a relatively short one, then engaging vendors who can use open source effectively is crucial. HPE is using open source and leveraging its partner ecosystem of 80+ companies, to build its NFV and SDN platforms and solutions. This talk will describe what HPE is doing with open source, open ecosystems and CSPs to accelerate the successful transformation of service provider networks.
