MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Mirantis, the world’s leading OpenStack company, today announced that strong growth in the first half of 2014 saw the company become the largest provider of OpenStack products and services for the telecommunications industry. Mirantis customers are leaders in their fields:

  • AT&T is the largest provider of both mobile and landline telephones in the United States.
  • Orange is one of the most recognizable telecommunications companies in Europe with millions of customers across the Continent.
  • Pacnet possesses the most extensive privately-owned submarine cable system, with connectivity to interconnected data centers across 14 cities in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • Huawei serves 45 of the world’s 50 largest telecoms operators.
  • Ericsson is the world leader in the 2G/3G/4G mobile network infrastructure market with 35% market share in 2012.

    Mirantis has been supporting customers in the telecommunications space since the inception of OpenStack more than 4 years ago. Such collaboration has enabled these companies to attain the production qualities that people have come to OpenStack cloud for today. Mirantis customers in the telecommunications space alone generate hundreds of billions of dollars in annual revenues and employ hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. In a CRN 2013 ranking of the world’s ten most valuable telecommunications companies, two were Mirantis customers: Orange, at #6, and AT&T, at #1. AT&T has more than 116 million mobile subscribers in the United States alone.

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
