Everything is ready for a new edition of the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which will take place from February 27 to March 2 in Barcelona and L’Hospitalet de Llobregat. Consolidated as one of the most important technology fairs in the worldhopes to bring together more than 80,000 people in this new edition and generate an impact in the region of around 350 million euros.
The participating companies are already beginning to explain what will be the main novelties that they are going to present, among them redhata leading provider of enterprise open source solutions, hybrid cloud infrastructure, application services, cloud-based application development, and automation solutions.
Red Hat plans to announce several new developments related to advanced 5G, telco cloud, industrial edge, AI, RAN, and energy efficiency. A technological proposal for the telco sector very focused on providing the necessary technology to enhance the value of their networks, monetize investment and achieve greater energy efficiency.
As part of the topics that Red Hat experts will develop within the MWC are the Culture + cloud, that is beyond adopting technology, the keys to adapt a company to such a dynamic environment.
Also the edge-to-edge mesh with which to know how to break cloud silos to get the most out of edge computing, and everything about innovation at the edge. An ideal occasion to focus attention on the open source communities that drive progress and how this translates into the strategies of service providers.
The hyper-automation of all business lines
redhat too will deal with Open RAN in order to bridge the gap between concept and realitybusiness architectures and complexity management; hybrid cloud with the evolution of multicloud alliances and data sovereignty; he 5G; the evolution of zero trust security posturescrutiny of the software supply chain, expanding the scope of DevSecOps in software-defined environments… and the hyper-automation across all lines of business, IT, network, applications and infrastructure. From zero touch provisioning and deployment for RAN, to the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) from the core to the edge.
Other issues will also be important, such as the energy efficiency and how to incorporate it into current and future networks, while meeting demands for density, power, and processing. And how application development will drive the digital transformation of telecommunications.
Also, Monday February 27 from 16:15 – 17:00, the round table will be held Open RAN: The Debate in which they will talk about the opportunities and the challenges associated with network unbundling. In addition, it will delve into how it can be made to work for the majority and what it takes to achieve widespread adoption.
The table will discuss how system integration and security risks can be addressed, when the telecom industry will actually be shown to save CAPEX and OPEX, and how it can benefit the goals sustainability of the telecommunications sector.
The session will be moderated by Tim Hatt, Head of Research & Consulting, GSMA Intelligence, and the speakers will be Honoré LaBourdette, VP, Telco, Media & Entertainment Ecosystem, Red Hat; Raghunath Hariharan, CTO, Rakuten Symphony, Alex Choi, Deutsche Telekom, Chairman, O-RAN and Mariam Sorond, CTO, Service Provider & Edge, VMware
