AT&T Selects Juniper's Contrail for Cloud Infrastructure

AT&T has selected Juniper Networks Contrail Networking to provide software-defined networking capabilities in its AT&T Integrated Cloud (AIC) infrastructure.

Juniper Networks confirmed that AT&T will use its Contrail Networking to help automate and virtualize the network to rapidly scale and accelerate the deployment of new services. The company said its open approach ensures vendor-agnostic interoperability.

“Juniper and AT&T share a common vision for a customizable cloud network experience that is highly scalable, secure, automated and can readily adapt to customer needs,” said Ankur Singla, corporate vice president and general manager of Cloud Software at Juniper Networks. “Juniper is pleased to be working with AT&T to help them usher in the future of networking, while embracing the open source community.”

  • Juniper's Contrail Networking is an SDN solution that automates and orchestrates the creation of highly scalable virtual networks.  The hypervisor-level vRouter forwarding plane provides line-rate overlay packet processing in a multitenant virtualized, containerized, or bare-metal environment completely decoupled from the underlying physical fabric switches. It provides L3VPN and E-VPN style overlays that can span cloud boundaries with federation.
