Lenovo, Red Hat Team Up to Deliver NFV Infrastructure to Telcos
Lenovo is teaming up with #RedHat as it looks to build tightly integrated and open systems for the telecommunications industry, and is looking at network virtualization as a key part of the effort. At the recent Red Hat Summit, #Lenovo officials unveiled its Open Platform @Lenovo (OP@L) to create open infrastructure that will run Red Hat’s software stack for network-functions virtualization ( #NFV ), an emerging technology that is playing a key role in telco initiatives to create more agile, programmable and scalable networks to address changing customer demands. At the same time, Lenovo also joined the Open Platform NFV ( #OPNFV ) consortium, which is developing an open, carrier-grade platform enabling members to develop solutions and services using NFV. Company officials said the move will help Lenovo advance its telco ambitions and give it a greater presence in the burgeoning NFV market.
