Meanwhile, AT&T named Amdocs and Juniper Networks as two additional vendors that will help AT&T toward the vision of the User-Defined Network Cloud.

User-Defined Network Cloud program, first announced on February 24, will place customers at the center of the network with a modern, cloud-based architecture, a global first at this scale. The program allows AT&T to tap into the latest technologies to enhance the network infrastructure.

Tim Harden, president, AT&T Supply Chain, said: “We’re taking another step toward building the faster, simpler and more flexible network of the future that provides increased global connectivity with easily scalable and faster content delivery.”
