How AT&T is Using OpenDaylight

Yesterday at an event in San Jose Margaret Chiosi, distinguished network architect at AT&T Labs, shared what they’re doing with SDN and NFV on the path to Domain 2.0.

And in doing so, the carrier has decided to extend its controller’s reach to Layers 4-7, going beyond the usual concept of an SDN controller that spans Layers 0-3.

AT&T has also adopted a ‘code first, tweak later’ strategy which helps them iterate faster. Read the full article at SDxCentral.
