AT&T Gets On SD-WAN Bandwagon

One of the largest service providers in the world, AT&T is partnering with VeloCloud to bring Software-defined WAN capabilities to its growing software-centric efforts. This would enable organizations to route traffic across their wide area networks by providing many multiple transport options and automatically going for the best route.

Global service providers are able to increase revenue, deliver advanced services and increase flexibility by delivering elastic transport, performance for cloud applications, and integrated advanced services all via a zero-touch deployment and operations model. Both enterprises and service providers benefit from the multi-tenant cloud gateway architecture and the ability to support real-time applications over private, broadband, and wireless links.

The service providers are going in adopting Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to reduce hardware components in their networks. Virtualization enables them to efficiently address the cloud-centric world.

“Businesses need to satisfy increasing bandwidth demands while reducing costs,” Rick Hubbard, senior vice president of network product management at AT&T, said in a statement. “That means network needs are evolving, too. This initiative is part of our software-centric strategy that gives our customers more flexibility and control of their networking services.”
