The network is breaking free from hardware. The new software-based network will give customers access to faster, more flexible products and services.
AT&T is putting customers at the center of the network with a modern, cloud-based architecture – a global first at this scale. SDN allows AT&T and its customers to create products and services quicker than before, with more control and the ability to add services on-demand and in near real-time.
AT&T is on the leading edge in applying real-world SDN and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) concepts to a carrier environment. The first of those deployments to launch, Network on Demand, allows customers to adjust their network capabilities on demand in nearly real time.
This network is supported by Domain 2.0, our supplier program, which will transform our network to a modern, open, cloud-based architecture. Domain 2.0 allows us to collaborate with a variety of vendors offering equipment to build this new architecture, based on NFV and SDN. We continue to seek out and welcome suppliers through an open and ongoing procurement process.
