Amdocs inks deal with AT&T for ECOMP project

Amdocs today announced its deal with American telecom network operator AT&T.

Amdocs will be the integrator for telecommunications companies and cloud developers who want to use AT&T’s ECOMP platform to build their own software-centric network services. Amdocs will help companies deploy the open source software into their own networks.

ECOMP is a tool for service providers struggling to meet today’s network demands while preparing for an even greater load in the next few years from applications like virtual reality and augmented reality, 4K video and the Internet of Things.

ECOMP will enable shorter service introduction times, improved operational efficiency and agile data-driven service management of NFV and software defined network (SDN) functions and services.

AT&T has already implemented ECOMP in its software-based network, while Amdocs will help market the platform globally.

“ECOMP is the engine of our software-centric network. Recently, we revealed our plan to build a global community around ECOMP to help service providers and developers meet the network demands of next-gen technologies,” said Chris Rice, VP of Advanced Technologies and Architecture at AT&T Labs.
