Live Q&A

The Q&A Show was broadcast live at the end of day two of the Open Telco Infra Summit. TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels and Ray Le Maistre were joined by industry guest panellists for this question and answer session. Among the questions raised by our audience were:

  • Are there too many test and integration labs? Do we need consolidation?
  • Is there a risk of heading towards “re-integration” - taking us back to where we started with lock-in?
  • Expanding the open networking ecosystem needs major investment, but who is going to invest in startups and new innovative technology companies?
  • With telcos moving to the cloud, how has this affected the approach to observability, considering that network elements have transitioned to software components?
  • Are any parts of telco networks already showing any benefits of open networking deployments, and are there any positive use cases?
