BANGALORE: Red
Hat
today announced its newly created Telecommunications Partner Program (TPP)
to drive awareness and adoption of carrier-grade server platforms and solutions
based on industry-standard hardware and Red Hat software.

The TPP will deepen Red Hat’s relationships with leading network equipment
providers (NEPs), OEMs, telecommunications
ISVs and operators, and will package Red Hat’s new and existing capabilities
into an integrated platform that can be easily leveraged across the telecommunications
ecosystem.

The Telecommunications Partner Program is designed to align Red Hat with
other equipment providers and develop common strategies, programs and product
roadmaps for a smooth migration to open source platforms. There are also plans
to drive awareness of the open platforms value proposition, aimed at operators,
service providers, carriers and their associated system integrators.

Tim Yeaton, senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing and general manager
of Enterprise

Products, Red Hat, said, "The TPP brings together members of the
telecommunications ecosystem to accelerate the delivery of reliable,
high-performance solutions that substantially reduce capital cost and operating
expenses for service providers."

"Our strong partnerships with the hardware OEMs, NEPs and the ISV
community are helping to drive our range of software deeper into the network
data center," he added.
