AT&T and Brocade are teaming up to enhance their “Network on Demand” platform.

AT&T is utilizing Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies to create dynamic on-demand services.

Kelly Herrell, senior vice president and general manager of software networking at Brocade, said “Brocade is proud to work with AT&T on their industry-leading innovations bringing agile, new IP network services to customers.”

“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,” the executive added.

Roman Pacewicz, AT&T’s senior vice president of marketing and global strategy said, “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.”

The firms said with new Network on Demand capabilities, they continue to make global networks dynamic and adaptive.
