The telecom industry is ripe for disruption.  Legacy solutions involving big iron appliances are too expensive to grow or maintain, and telecom companies across the country and world are swapping out their legacy iron for newer technologies as quick as they can find good solutions.  VoIP has traditionally been looked down on as not reliable enough for carriers.  Alianza's Cloud Voice Platform changes all that and allows our customers to provide carrier-grade voice services at a fraction of the cost of their legacy solutions and a fraction of the cost of their competitors.  There are a handful of factors that make this possible, one of which is the transition from proprietary VM management solutions to OpenStack and Open Source where possible.  Join as we cover how Alianza transitioned to OpenStack and other Open Source solutions, how we configure/manage/provision resources on our private clouds, and how we transitioned from a traditional network setup to software defined networks using mostly open source tools.  We'll also explore the cost savings and operational efficiencies we realized by being able to be more agile.
