Live Q&A discussion

The Q&A Show was broadcast live at the end of day one 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:

  • What were the key takeaways from this week’s LFN ONE event that relate to open telco infrastructure? 
  • Before deciding on open infra, do operators need to see the capex and opex benefits first, judged alongside traditional implementations?
  • To really make networks more efficient and applicable to next-generation networking, do we need a new approach to compute and storage, rather than disaggregation?
  • If vendor A's application is running on vendor B's operating system on vendor C's hardware, who is responsible when something goes wrong?
  • How do we make things more ‘welcoming’ for incoming telco vendors?
