On November 15, Red Hat hosted its fourth annual Open5G virtual event, with session tracks dedicated to open source advancements in 5G core, RAN, edge, cloud, AI, sustainability and more – discussed from the perspectives of over 25 leading service providers and key partners, industry analysts and Red Hat technologists.
We structure Open5G in a very open source way – not just the subject matter, but also the spirit of bringing together a community of experts with diverse backgrounds and perspectives, sharing ideas and experiences to tackle a common challenge. Each year, these pioneers have shared their successes and challenges in building, maintaining and capitalizing on 5G networks. They also offer insights into how they’ve used open technologies to evolve their networks from connectivity pipes to platforms for lucrative innovation, helping to advance other industries (banking, energy, agriculture, retail…) and whole societies – all with remarkable candor and generosity .
