Indian IT major is developing software-based programmable solutions using Red Hat’s open source technology to focus on business. The company said once ready, the solutions will help CSPs, enterprises and citizen networks to get the full potential of web-scale Network Function Virtualisation Infrastructure (NFVI) platform, for their network automation and Software Defined Network () initiatives. The company will leverage Red Hat’s suite to develop a solution-stack that is more open and vendor agnostic. This will be set up at Sterlite Tech’s Centre for Smarter Networks (CSN).

“Given the volume and variability in data demand by end users in today’s digital landscape, the networks of today and tomorrow need to be higher-speed, more secure, programmable and more reliable,” said the company.

“Sterlite Tech is leading the development of software-defined and artificial intelligence platforms that will program optical networks for service providers, delivering intelligent services and a superior experience to their customers,” said Anshoo Gaur, CEO – Telecom Software Business, Sterlite Tech.

The company said that programmability and openness cannot be achieved without using open specifications and production-grade open-source code. “Red Hat is a leader when it comes to putting open-source code in production, and we are delighted to partner with them,” asserted Gaur.

“Open source software, specifically infrastructure as a platform, for NFV can give communications service providers more flexibility and agility to adjust to industry changes and help to accelerate delivery of new services with an innovative, open and interoperable architecture. We are excited to work with Sterlite Tech as we share a common purpose to transform the design, build-out and management of networks based on open source technologies,” said, Ben Henshall, Country Manager, Red Hat – India.
