Just how seriously are telcos – and the longstanding established telecoms vendors – taking open source, and are we yet at a stage where open networking has become the “new norm” within telcos, or are they still debating the merits of open source-based strategies, Red Hat's Darrell Jordan-Smith advises that they should look at a common NFVi platform and recognise that software-defined components will be critical in terms of new services. They should work with their traditional network equipment suppliers to make the change, minimise risk and move rapidly to market.
