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.

Lumina Networks calls this network enlightenment.

Joined by our partners Amdocs and VMware, Lumina discusses the layers of the network where open source can deliver functional value to 5G and MEC networks and well as an update on standards and open source progress in the space.

What are some of the technology and culture lessons from early 5G deployments?

Watch to learn.
