Open source projects by their very nature are community driven. With telcos’ utilization of open source solutions to enable their network virtualization strategies, telcos are no longer willing to accept solutions created within isolation, but rather expect input and contribution.  

This NMG hosted panel will discuss Orange’s hybrid approach to telco virtualization, which combines the benefits of best-of-breed open source developments and a partner ecosystem comprised of leaders from within open source communities, effectively enabling Orange with the agility of open source solutions, while enabling standardized approaches to the implementation of virtualization across Orange’s network.
