Dallas – WEBWIRE

AT&T* has signed an agreement with IP Infusion to be the value-added integrator of DANOS-Vyatta edition, the industryís first network operating system (NOS) designed to address the ever-changing needs of the carrier environment. AT&T will also release the open source code for the Disaggregated Network Operating System (DANOS), hosted by the Linux Foundation on Nov. 15. DANOS is an open source version of AT&Tís Vyatta code that is running today in AT&Tís production network.

IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for telecom and data communications services, will have exclusive rights to sell DANOS-Vyatta edition as a commercial solution and provide ongoing support for carrier customers who need additional integration expertise.

DANOS-Vyatta edition includes many of the production-ready features used today in AT&Tís network to meet the demand for functionality, scale and reliability required in the carrier environment. It also allows users to select and integrate multiple hardware vendors. This interoperability is a result of AT&Tís commitment to foster and contribute to open platforms that speed innovation and allow for flexibility of suppliers.

ďDANOS-Vyatta edition is currently running in AT&Tís production network on a number of white box use cases. This is a key component of our own network, and the disaggregated model it represents Ė decoupling hardware and software so they can be deployed and upgraded independently Ė is at the heart of our industry-leading approach to software-defined networking,Ē said Michael Satterlee, vice president, Network Infrastructure and Services, AT&T. ďIP Infusion is aligned with that vision, and will collaborate with us and the community on continuing to improve and advance the platform.Ē†

ďBy working with AT&T, IP Infusion will help to accelerate the network adoption of white box solutions as a cost-effective alternative to traditional networking models,Ē said Atsushi Ogata, CEO and President of IP Infusion. ďWe look forward to our work with AT&T. Our 20 years of experience in network routing will help to meet the evolving requirements of white box infrastructure customers.Ē

ďOur collaboration with IP Infusion around DANOS-Vyatta edition is about creating an ecosystem of solutions for service providers and alternatives to the traditional network model of closed systems,Ē said Chris Rice, senior vice president, Network Infrastructure and Cloud, AT&T.

The DANOS software framework is an open, cost-effective and flexible alternative to traditional networking operating systems. As part of the Linux Foundation, it will incorporate contributions from complementary open source communities to build a standardized distributed NOS.

ďWe are pleased to welcome the next phase of open collaboration within the DANOS project,Ē said Arpit Joshipura, general manager, Networking, Edge and IoT, the Linux Foundation. ďHaving an open source platform like DANOS complements the open source networking projects within the LF Networking community.Ē
