Morning Chairman
Azhar Sayeed,
Chief Architect - SDN and NFV, Red Hat
Combining Open Source and Open Standards
Learning more about the IETF Hackathons and MEF LSO Hackathons and how open standards and open source are brought together to the benefit of both communities. Open source community gains users, address a larger set of use cases, and gain stability of standards that can help avoid potentially harmful forking. Standards orgs benefit from the speed and collaborative spirit characteristic of open source.

SPs Need to "Go (Cloud) Native" to Revolutionize Telecom Services Management & Orchestration
Telecom service providers are looking to cloud architectures to boost service agility. But simple architectural cuts & pastes won't do - changes and extensions are needed to data center cloud architectures to accommodate SP-specific service and network needs. Done right the payoff can be huge, revolutionizing service deployment to end-users. Provisioning can be reduced to seconds with service durations that may only be for minutes or hours. We review what is needed, and show an approach - with examples - that revolutionizes how telecom services can be created and delivered.
