Dan Blemings, Director of Ethernet Product Management, AT&T
Dan tells Guy Daniels that AT&T wants to move to all Ethernet and IP infrastructure and it wants standards so it can enable easy interconnect with other Ethernet carriers - of whom there are 625 bordering AT&T’s network in the US. Then, once the connections are standardised, the effort will move to Ethernet ‘Lifecycle Service Orchestration’.
