AT&T And Brocade Join Forces To Extend Network On Demand Platform

Sep 30, 2015, 09:00 ET from AT&T Inc.

DALLAS and SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* and Brocade are teaming up to enhance the Network on Demand platform.

AT&T is utilizing Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies to create dynamic on-demand services.  We're leading the shift to next generation networking by providing customers with more flexible and scalable services.

We're working with Brocade to enable routing functions to be delivered from the cloud.  The new on-demand Managed Internet Service uses SDN and NFV technologies to deploy virtualized access routers and automate control in our core network. That means customers don't need to buy additional equipment at their locations. With Managed Internet Service on Demand, businesses can adjust and add capabilities in near-real time.

"Brocade is proud to work with AT&T on their industry-leading innovations bringing agile, new IP network services to customers," said Kelly Herrell, senior vice president and general manager of Software Networking, Brocade.  "The cloud model taught the world that virtualizing the IT infrastructure speeds service delivery and provides greater flexibility.  With Network on Demand, AT&T has proven this also holds true for enterprise network services."

"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," said Roman Pacewicz, senior vice president, AT&T Marketing and Global Strategy.

With new Network on Demand capabilities, we're continuing to make our network dynamic and adaptive. This will enable the agility, speed and efficiency our business customers need. Managed Internet Service on Demand will be available in select U.S. cities later this fall.
