As we venture into the era of SDN and 5G Networking, the speed of new technology introduction is accelerating exponentially. While the base cost structure continues to decline, the complexity of network management and control is increasing. Business demands will require unprecedented fast forwarding of new technology introduction and integration in the next 5-10 years. Effectively managing such challenges at an accelerated pace will be a perfect storm for network service providers and engineers.

This talk will share AT&T’s experience in adopting the DevOps model using open source platforms and tools to transform our operations support systems to rapidly introduce and integrate SDN, vRAN, and 5G technologies into our networks. We will discuss our goals, platform approach, and implementation strategy. At the end of the talk, we will provide a demo to demonstrate our initial success.
