Perhaps not surprisingly, Amdocs has been chosen to serve as the integrator for telecom companies and cloud developers that want to use AT&T's ECOMP platform to build their own software-centric network services.

AT&T created and developed ECOMP, and recently committed to releasing the code into open source. ECOMP is a software suite that spans the entire NFV service life cycle. Some of the benefits AT&T has touted with ECOMP include its ability to shorten service introduction times, improve operational efficiencies and drive agile data-driven service management of NFV and SDN functions and services.

"A system like ECOMP is very powerful as it allows us to build our next generation cloud-based network in a vendor agnostic way, giving us great flexibility for deploying NFV/SDN in our network," said John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president for AT&T, in a recent interview with FierceTelecom. "It costs less than maintaining existing network systems, and it allows us to accelerate the implementation of new services quicker than ever before." Article
