Huawei, Red Hat to enable OpenStack-based cloud for telecoms

Telecom network vendor Huawei has joined hands with Red Hat to enable OpenStack-based cloud deployments for telecoms.

Huawei and Red Hat aim to accelerate collaboration around OpenStack for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) required by telecom service providers

The telecom industry will benefit from the combination of Huawei’s expertise and experience with telecom companies and Red Hat’s OpenStack and open source expertise to utilize cloud computing with a carrier-grade OpenStack solution.


Huawei and Red Hat plan to integrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Huawei’s FusionSphere Cloud OS at the management layer to offer a production-ready cloud solution to support telecom carriers’ NFV evolution.

Huawei and Red Hat will contribute NFV enabling features to the OpenStack community, which are required by TSP cloud deployments, and serve as the foundation of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.

Ren Zhipeng, president of Huawei’s Cloud Computing Product Line, said: “This partnership will focus on NFV and the development of joint solutions to foster an open, interconnected, and innovative ecosystem that supports the entire OpenStack community.”
