​AT&T and Brocade join forces to extend Network on Demand platform

AT&T is working with Brocade to enable routing functions to be delivered from the cloud.

AT&T is utilising Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) technologies to create on-demand services, leading a shift to next generation networking.

Going forward, AT&T is working with Brocade to enable routing functions to be delivered from the cloud.

The new on-demand Managed Internet Service uses SDN and NFV technologies to deploy virtualised access routers and automate control in its core network.

“Brocade is proud to work with AT&T on their industry-leading innovations bringing agile, New IP network services to customers,” says Gary Denman, senior director Australia and New Zealand, Brocade.

“The cloud model taught the world that virtualising the IT infrastructure speeds service delivery and provides greater flexibility.

“With Network on Demand, AT&T has proven this also holds true for enterprise network services.”

AT&T is working with Brocade to enhance its Managed Internet Service on Demand, so customers don’t need a router at their location.

“With the support of their technology, customers will experience faster installations and more dynamic control of their network service,” adds Roman Pacewicz, senior vice president, Marketing and Global Strategy, AT&T.

“With new Network on Demand capabilities, we’re continuing to make our network dynamic and adaptive.

“This will enable the agility, speed and efficiency our business customers need. Managed Internet Service on Demand will be available in select U.S. cities later this fall.”

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
