The eight main supporters this year are Nokia, Component Soft, Suse, Datacenter Corner Ltd, Ubuntu, Softiron, Telekom and Datera.
The telecommunications and IT giant was among the first large companies to build an enterprise private cloud architecture based on OpenStack. After the sale of its mobile devices division to Microsoft in 2013, the company has had several successful business stories, including the Nokia N1 Android tablet, which got a favourable reception in 2015, and the demonstration of a 5G-ready network, with an expected worldwide commercial launch in 2020, while 5G chipsets will be released by Q3 2018.
