FREMONT, CA: AT&T, a provider of mobile telephone, fixed telephone and broadband subscription television services, and Brocade, a provider of networking solutions have joined hands to improve the network on demand platform.

In order to create dynamic on-demand services for its customers, AT&T utilizes Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies. It enables the company to deploy virtualized access routers and automate control in its core network.

The partnership with Brocade will enable routing functions to be delivered from the cloud. Customers now won’t have to purchase additional equipment at their locations. Businesses can now adjust and add capabilities in near-real time with the help of managed internet service on demand.
“We’re working with Brocade to enhance our Managed Internet Service on Demand, so customers don’t need a router at their location. With the support of their technology, customers will experience faster installations and more dynamic control of their network service,” says Roman Pacewicz, Senior Vice President, AT&T Marketing and Global Strategy.
