Telco Infrastructure Transformation Gets the Spotlight at HPE Discover 2018

HPE_Discover2018_Telco_Banner.jpgIn our hyper-connected world, digital transformation requirements are impacting and reshaping nearly every industry. The telecommunications industry is no exception as Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are evolving their business models, networks, and priorities to spur faster innovation on their road to 5G. The industry has identified one of the foundational building blocks to unlocking the agility CSPs need on this digital transformation to be network functions virtualization (NFV). By embracing virtualization and cloud technologies and techniques, CSPs can accelerate the introduction of new, compelling core services quickly and cost-effectively. With an open, industry standards-based, software-defined infrastructure, CSPs can drive new innovations in digital services, streaming media, multi-access edge computing (MEC), the Internet of Things (IoT), and many more new use cases.

At HPE Discover 2018 Las Vegas, HPE is bringing together telco industry leaders from across the globe to share insights into some of the amazing projects they’re working on to help future-proof and prepare for next-generation networks like 5G. Below is a brief snapshot of some of the telco-focused sessions we will be hosting at Discover in June. Be sure to also check out our Telco Discover 2018 Show Guide for more information.

IF5034 | Making 5G software defined infrastructure a reality

Tuesday, 6/19, 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Next-gen networks like 5G require the introduction of the right infrastructure at the right place within the network. Traditionally, network owners have dealt with a trade-off between incurring penalties from added management complexity versus introducing heterogeneous workloads and environment optimized infrastructure. This session will explore the implementation of open industry standards like Redfish API for infrastructure management in an NFV use case and how this software abstraction from the underlying hardware applies to 5G networks.

IF5035 | Simplifying the future of telco networks with infrastructure as code

Thursday, 6/21, 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Infrastructure as code (IaC) is a key attribute of the DevOps practice that we see our customers trying to deploy all over the world and across all industries. To architect an effective software-defined infrastructure, understanding the full range of capabilities that the IaC approach can deliver is essential. In this session, we will walk through the key principles of a successful IaC implementation and deep dive into telco specific use cases that accelerate and simplify infrastructure deployment to make next-gen networks like 5G a reality.
