Telcos all over the world have been considering or are deploying OpenStack for their IT and business transformation. There are use cases of telcos deploying OpenStack for their private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud, NFV, and other type of telco specific projects. Telcos sometimes have very unique requirements, which very often are more stringent than traditional enterprises, in the areas of performance, availability, scalability, manageability, and interoperability with other telco standards such as ETSI, OPNFV, etc.  In this panel, we have representatives from six major telcos to share with the audience their experience with OpenStack, and their vision on how OpenStack should evolve in order to meet their telco needs. We will also open up the discussion to include audience' participation.
