INDIA: Juniper Networks announced that AT&T has selected Juniper Networks Contrail Networking to provide software-defined networking capabilities in its AT&T Integrated Cloud (AIC) infrastructure. As part of the AIC, a foundational element of the company’s software-centric network, AT&T will use Contrail Networking to help automate and virtualize the network to rapidly scale and accelerate the deployment of new services.

The open approach of Contrail Networking ensures vendor-agnostic interoperability. It is a platform capable of handling the scale and rigor of the most demanding cloud environments, bringing added benefit to the AIC, explains the announcement.

Juniper is giving others the opportunity to participate in the continual evolution of Contrail as it is built on open source software. With Contrail Networking, based on OpenContrail, AT&T can quickly incorporate new capabilities into its network while decreasing development time and cost. Contributing to the open source community is crucial to driving the software shift at AT&T and within the industry, as further added by the company.

“Juniper and AT&T share a common vision for a customizable cloud network experience that is highly scalable, secure, automated and can readily adapt to customer needs,” said Ankur Singla, corporate vice president and general manager of Cloud Software at Juniper Networks. “Juniper is pleased to be working with AT&T to help them usher in the future of networking, while embracing the open source community.”
