CXO Connect Program: Open Source+5G, The Perfect Power Couple
From smart cars to smart manufacturing, to smart cities, the future will be formed on pervasive microchips linked by wireless networks. And 5G is just the beginning. The innovation vows to usher in the rapid, low-latency wireless infrastructure essential for building the “smart” future. And open-source is progressively being viewed as a means of assisting developers extend to 5G’s use cases and applications. The benefits of open source and 5G together will be realized over time only if companies commit fully to utilize them over the next 5 years.
To discuss and share valuable insights, Shalil Gupta, CBO, Mosaic Digital, An HT Media Company had an invigorating discussion with Anish Shah, President & COO, Reliance Jio Platforms, and Abhishek Shukla, Director, Telco, Media and Entertainment (TME), Red Hat India and South Asia. This insightful discussion on Open Source + 5G: The Perfect Power Couple, powered by Red Hat in association with TechCircle and Mint, highlights how open source along with 5G is driving the future of India. And what potential benefits the companies can derive from integrating both in their models.
The interview was a pool of knowledge build-up around how 5G technology will become the industry standard, facilitating new levels and areas of connectivity. Anish Shah quoted, “5G is not just a technology, it is an ecosystem.”
Usage and adoption of this approaching technology have been credited to the powerful combination of open source and cloud technologies. Adding further, Anish reiterated, “To balance compute vs cost, low-latency vs cost...needs to open up different domain technologies integrating with a network. And if the network is closed, there’s no way I can integrate it. It needs to interface. It needs to connect. And there I believe open source plays a very important role.”
Underlining the three pillars in the entire 5G journey for transformation, Abhishek Shukla mentioned- 1. Enterprises: they have to be open, receptive and ready for investments. 2. Operators: they have to start thinking like a developer organization and not a service provider 3. Ecosystems: all players need to work together like a team to realize 5G transformation into reality.
Summarizing the discussion, said Shalil Gupta, “The principle of O to C (Organizations to Direct Consumers) is emerging. If any architecture is developed on this principle, it is there for success. And everyone else will play a technological integration part in this ecosystem.”
