MEF18: Josh Goodell on AT&T's edge-to-edge vision

AT&T was back at MEF's annual event once again to share its vision of network transformation, this time presenting its edge-to-edge vision. This transformation is really about looking at customer networking needs holistically, says Josh Goodell, Vice President, Edge Solutions, AT&T.

AT&T has seen strong momentum this year for services powered by its SDN and NFV platforms, with over 28,000 end points currently deployed. MEF's work to standardize SD-WAN services will further strengthen the market.

2019 will bring more network transformation. 5G will be transformative, enabling a whole new set of use cases, and these hopefully will be incorporated in the MEF framework going forward.
