AT&T adds Juniper SDN controller

Using Contrail for Integrated Cloud infrastructure

AT&T has added Juniper Networks’ controller to its SDN. Juniper’s Contrail controller will provide SDN control of AT&T’s Integrated Cloud infrastructure.

AT&T will use Contrail to help automate and virtualize the network for deployment of new services. AT&T is also using Brocade’s Vyatta controller in its Network on Demand service.

Juniper says Contrail is based on its Open Contrail open source software, and allows AT&T to incorporate new capabilities into its network while decreasing development time and cost.

AT&T last week named Juniper, Brocade and Cisco as suppliers for the virtual CPE component of its Network on Demand service.
