AT&T said that it plans to release its current Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management and Policy (ECOMP) platform as open source at the Linux Foundation. AT&T which introduced ECOMP in March this year allows rapid on-boarding of new services (created by AT&T or third parties) to its customers. 

The ECOMP is designed to enable global service providers and cloud developers to meet non-stop network demands as data-hungry technologies like autonomous cars, augmented and virtual reality, 4K video and the Internet of Things (IoT) continue to grow rapidly with deployments taking shape across the globe.

The Operator says that the network function virtualization (NFV) platform is the basis for its target to virtualize 75 per cent of its network by 2020 to be able to cater for these new network-enabled technologies and ensure that they run smoothly. 

John Donovan, Chief Strategy Officer and Group President, Technology and Operations, AT&T
Over the last few years, AT&T invented what we believe to be the most sophisticated, comprehensive and scalable software-centric network in the world. Today, we’re letting anyone use and build upon our millions of lines of software code by committing to releasing it into the open source community.
