The telecom industry's transformation from traditional networking infrastructure to virtualized data centers is driving increasing demand for open hardware solutions. The Open Compute Project (OCP) has provided basis for rack-scale integration of open compute, storage and networking resources in enterprise data centers. However, adapting the OCP model to the telecommunications industry must take into account new carrier requirements.

In this webinar, Heavy Reading analyst Simon Stanley and Radisys' Suzanne Kelliher will address the following:

  • Trends in the adoption of SDN and NFV in telecom networks, and how these trends are driving demand of open hardware solutions.
  • How OCP forms the foundation for rack-scale open compute, storage and networking resources required for virtualized networking solutions.
  • How OCP is adapting to address telecommunication industry needs to accommodate carrier-grade central office environments including Physical, Content/Workload, Management and Networking/Interconnect.
  • Industry initiatives, including the Central Office Re-Architected as a Datacenter (CORD), which provides a reference architecture for virtualized networking based on open source SDN and NFV software on open hardware.
  • Real-world examples of mobile operators deploying carrier-grade OCP equipment, pre-integrated with open source SDN and NFV software, to facilitate 5G service innovations and rapid service delivery using DevOps principles.

Live Digital Audio

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.
