There was much surprise when AT&T decided to release its ECOMP (Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management & Policy) platform, which controls its SDN network, to open source. It then appointed Amdocs to be an integrator for telcos and cloud developers who want to use it to build their own software-centric network services. What was behind AT&T’s move, and is this an indication of telcos wanting to take more control to drive interworking and standards, rather than rely on the less prescriptive earlier approach? And how does this tie in with the MEF’s Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) project?
