AT&T's Conversion to Virtualization, Software Control On Track

January 09, 2019 / David Ramel

AT&T jumped on the software-centric networking bandwagon in a big way by aiming to virtualize and "software control" 75 percent of its core network operations by 2020, and today it announced that plan is on track."In 2018, we reached the 65 percent mark as planned, taking advantage of the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) that we co-founded in 2017," said the company in a Jan. 9 post. ONAP resulted from The Linux Foundation combining two of its open source projects into one for automating virtual network functions in software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) implementations.
