Open Source in Networking
When seeking to create new kinds of services or do things a different way, carriers constantly bump up against the limitations of the proprietary software, interfaces and product roadmaps of their longtime network solution vendors. For networks like this, open source sheds a light on new opportunities and service potential. This glimmer of light helps our customers to redefine their customer relationships, re-architect their network functionality, and recreate the service innovation process.
