Moving from monolithic, purpose-build networks to flexible, open source networks requires more than new technology and code; it requires a shift in culture and practices.

Telecom TV sat with Lumina Networks' CEO, Andrew Coward, to discuss what it will take for open source to succeed. Andrew highlights how end users must invest in open source success by giving us an inside look at some of the lessons learned from their tier-1 operator open source deployments. What shifts in the culture are required to capture full benefit from open source? Which policies and practices are most effective to engage human resources? How can operators make decisions on code commits which will help sustain the community they're investing in, secure their competitive advantages and maximize potential community innovation?

Watch as we review what has worked, and where there is room to grow.
