Open Source NFV - The AT&T Story
A headline theme of this sector is the quickening of a central open source platform for NFV deployment, that also showcases the central innovation leadership role AT&T has emerged to play.

In particular we'll examine a headline theme of applying enterprise 'Cloud Native' best practices, based our ebook dedicated to the topic of the emergent use of the formula defining the use of containers, microservices software architecture and Continuous Deployment practices.
