Speaking at the Open Networking and Edge Summit (ONES) this week, AT&T Chief Technology Officer of Network Services Andre Fuetsch said that AT&T has deployed its Network Cloud 315 times to date.
AT&T uses Airship software for its 5G Network Cloud infrastructure. AT&T, along with SKT, Intel and the OpenStack Foundation, formed the Airship open source project in 2018. The goal was, and still is, to create open infrastructure software for telco clouds so operators can run virtual network functions and cloud-native network functions (CNFs). The software also gives operators the agility to make real-time upgrades to their clouds with no downtime.
