Open source has evolved over decades, and is rapidly emerging as a viable tool for industries relatively new to the concept. Specifically, the telecommunications and cable industries have been increasingly participating in the open source, community, and with it exerting greater influence on the process. While there many benefits, major operators, whose business is the network, are seeking to adopt open source, without compromising their ability to deliver carrier-grade services.

In this keynote panel discussion, representatives from operators and vendors, will discuss how open source is evolving to address the needs of major carriers. Specifically, we will address the growing role of operators in the process, and how to blend the rigor of telecommunications with the flexibility that the open source methodology offers.
