AT&T integrating 5G with Microsoft cloud to enable next-generation solutions on the edge – Stories

DALLAS and REDMOND, Wash. — Nov. 26, 2019 — Microsoft and AT&T are ramping up innovation in the early days of their strategic alliance announced in July. One area of focus is aimed at enabling new 5G, cloud and edge computing solutions to drive enterprise capabilities for companies around the world.

The companies are opening select preview availability for Network Edge Compute (NEC) technology, which weaves Microsoft Azure cloud services into AT&T network edge locations closer to customers. This means AT&T’s software-defined and virtualized 5G core – what the company calls the Network Cloud – is now capable of delivering Azure services. NEC will initially be available for a limited set of select customers in Dallas. Next year, Los Angeles and Atlanta are targeted for select customer availability.

From making the world’s first 5G millimeter wave browsing session on a commercial 5G device to groundbreaking commercial installations in healthcare, manufacturing and entertainment, AT&T has proved itself to be a leader in 5G. The company recently activated an industry-first 400-gigabit connection between Dallas and Atlanta to support video, gaming and other 5G needs. AT&T serves parts of 21 cities with its 5G network using millimeter wave spectrum (5G+) and plans to offer nationwide 5G in the first half of 2020.

“The first smartphones on 3G networks introduced the idea of mobile apps over a decade ago. A few years later, 4G LTE made it feasible to connect those devices faster to cloud applications to stream videos, hail rides, and broadcast content to the world,” said Mo Katibeh, EVP and chief marketing officer, AT&T Business. “With our 5G and edge computing, AT&T is collaborating uniquely with Microsoft to marry their cloud capabilities with our network to create lower latency between the device and the cloud that will unlock new, future scenarios for consumers and businesses. We’ve said all year developers and businesses will be the early 5G adopters, and this puts both at the forefront of this revolution.”

This innovation points to a future where high-end augmented reality glasses are as thin and stylish as a standard pair of eyeglasses, lightweight drones can track themselves and thousands of nearby companions in near-real time, and autonomous cars have access to nearly-instant data processing capabilities without having to install a mini data center in the trunk.

“We are helping AT&T light up a wide range of unique solutions powered by Microsoft’s cloud, both for its business and our mutual customers in a secure and trusted way,” said Corey Sanders, corporate vice president, Microsoft Solutions. “The collaboration reaches across AT&T, bringing the hyperscale of Microsoft Azure together with AT&T’s network to innovate with 5G and edge computing across every industry.”

 5G and edge for gaming, drones, and more

One example of how edge computing can unlock new scenarios and experiences is in mobile gaming, where gaming company Game Cloud Network has created a unique 5G game that’s hosted on the network edge with Microsoft Azure. Game Cloud Network is a pioneer in developing game-based brand engagement and a customer of AT&T. The company is now showcasing its new “Tap & Field” game, which utilizes Microsoft’s Azure PlayFab services. In the game, users race each other in near-real time via this track-and-field-style game, enabled by the speed of 5G-connected devices.

“5G gaming provides consumers with the best of both worlds: highly-immersive experiences on lightweight mobile devices,” said Aaron Baker, chief executive officer, Game Cloud Network. “AT&T and Microsoft are building the perfect environment for game developers to create amazing new possibilities for gamers. 5G and edge computing have the potential to radically change how we play together and launch new business opportunities for brands and game publishers.”

Through AT&T Foundry, AT&T and Microsoft are exploring proofs-of-concept including augmented and virtual reality scenarios and drones. For example, both companies continue to work with Israeli startup Vorpal, helping its VigilAir product track drones in commercial zones, airports, and other areas with near-instant positioning. The companies also recently demoed using Microsoft HoloLens to provide 3D schematic overlays for technicians making repairs to airplanes and other industrial equipment.

Progress toward a “public-cloud first company” and more

Microsoft is also helping AT&T Communications become a “public-cloud first” company by migrating most non-network workloads to the public cloud by 2024, and this migration to Azure is already underway. Another important part of AT&T’s strategy is to empower much of its workforce with Microsoft 365. This includes cloud-connected Office apps on Windows 10, and modern collaboration with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and OneDrive. AT&T has begun rolling out these solutions to tens of thousands of employees to help drive a culture of modern work.

AT&T and Microsoft will have more to share over the coming months and years as this unique alliance continues to evolve and expand. The two companies will both create and adopt new technologies to develop tools, commercial services and consumer applications that benefit everyone.

AT&T design for open routing covers many uses

AT&T has introduced an ambitious open design for a distributed, disaggregated chassis that hardware makers can use to build service provider-class routers ranging from single line card systems to large clusters of routing hardware.

AT&T recently submitted the specs for its white box architecture to the Open Compute Project, an initiative to share with the general IT industry designs for server and data center components. The AT&T design builds a router chassis around Broadcom’s StrataDNX Jericho2 system-on-a-chip for Ethernet switches and routers.

AT&T has been a leading advocate of open, disaggregated hardware to reduce CapEx costs. It plans to use the new design for edge and core routers that comprise its global Common Backbone. The CBB is the network that handles the service provider’s IP traffic.

Also, AT&T plans to use the Jericho2 chip in its design to power 400 Gbps interfaces for the carrier’s next-generation 5G wireless network services.

For several years, AT&T has advocated for an open disaggregated router, which means the hardware is responsible only for data traffic while its control plane runs in separate software. Therefore, AT&T’s new design specs are not a surprise.

“What is indeed interesting is that they are taking the approach to all router use cases including high-performance, high-capacity routing using this distributed chassis scale-out approach,” Rajesh Ghai, an analyst at IDC, said.

AT&T design committed to hardware neutrality

AT&T’s hardware-agnostic design is ambitious because its use in carrier-class routing would require a new approach to procuring, deploying, managing and orchestrating hardware, Ghai said. “I know they have tried [to develop that approach] in the lab over the past year with a startup.”

Whether hardware built on AT&T specs can find a home outside of the carrier’s data centers remains to be seen.

“AT&T’s interest in releasing the specs for everyone is to drive adoption of the open hardware approach by other SPs [service providers] and hence drive a new market for disaggregated routers,” Ghai said. “But this requires sophistication on the part of the SP that few have. So, we’ll have to see who jumps in next.”

At the very least, vendors know the specifications they must meet to sell router software to AT&T, Ghai said.

AT&T’s design specifies three key building blocks for router clusters. The smallest is a line card system that supports 40 100 Gbps ports, plus 13 400 Gbps fabric-facing ports. In the middle is a line card system supporting 10 400 Gbps client ports, plus 13 400 Gbps fabric-facing ports.

For the largest systems, there is a fabric device that supports 48 400 Gbps ports. AT&T’s specs also cover a fabric system with 24 400 Gbps ports.

AT&T has taken a more aggressive approach to open hardware than rival Verizon. The latter has said it would run its router control plane in the cloud and use it to manage devices from Cisco and Juniper Networks, Ghai said.

Intertek joins AT&T IoT Accelerator Program

Intertek has been named a preferred testing and certification laboratory for the AT&T IoT Accelerator Program. It is the first U.S. lab approved as part of this program, which offers AT&T network certification testing to vendors who want to launch IoT devices on the AT&T network.

The program offers low-cost LTE modules certified for the AT&T network.

Intertek was named as an approved laboratory because of its experience with connected products and ability to guide device makers through the process. Intertek will also conduct pre-testing and testing activities, fulfill research and development requests, complete documentation needs and navigate the submission and approval process.

Other approved labs include 7 Layers, Cetecom, CTTL/ATMCL, Dekra, PCTest, SGS SA, Sporton International and UL LLC.

The IoT market is ever-growing, with Grand View Research predicting that the IoT global market will reach $949.42 billion by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate of 29.4% during that time period. It attributes that growth to the rising demand for machine-to-machine technology systems, desire for predictive maintenance and people’s need to contextualize the operation technology data.

In August, Microsoft reported that IoT adoption has grown significantly, particularly in commercial, enterprise-grade organizations. In its report, Microsoft claimed enterprise IoT adoption makes economic success certain, and that businesses can expect a 30% ROI within three years of IoT implementation.

Due to the seemingly lucrative and popular IoT trend, AT&T is not the only organization with an IoT accelerator program. Soracom also offers one, as does Plug and Play, among many others.

Soracom’s program also aims to help developers get products built and into production quickly and economically. It works with partners such as Carbon Five, Breadware, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, PubNub, Seeed and the Igor Institute.

Plug and Play brands itself as an innovation platform, aiming to bring together IoT startups and large corporations. It hosts accelerator programs over 50 times a year, with each lasting for 12 weeks. It gives startups the chance to build corporate clients and meet mentors and investors. Plug and Play’s IoT corporate partners include Panasonic, ADT, Fujitsu, Nintendo, Maxell and more.

AT&T Spark highlights big changes in networking market

SAN FRANCISCO — AT&T is revamping more than its massive network to deliver high-speed, low-latency 5G services to businesses and consumers. The company is also remaking its relationship with networking vendors.

At the heart of the change is an open-source-first policy that has redefined the role of tech vendors that historically supplied the service provider with proprietary hardware and software. Now, AT&T is telling its suppliers, which include Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung, they have to become software developers and system integrators.

“There is a place for all of those hardware vendors in this new ecosystem to become integrators, to become hardeners,” Amy Wheelus, vice president of AT&T’s Network Cloud, said this week during an interview at the service provider’s 5G AT&T Spark conference.

A hardener, which is a word Wheelus takes credit for, is a tech company that bolts features onto open source software, such as security and the management applications necessary to troubleshoot and fix network problems. Open source technology, such as OpenStack and Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP), is the foundation of AT&T’s Network Cloud, a cloud computing platform under construction to support future 5G applications.

Work like AT&T’s, which is also underway in other service providers’ data centers, is changing the relationship between carriers and networking suppliers, said Rajesh Ghai, an analyst at IDC.

“There’s a big architectural change that is happening in telcos today,” he said. “[And] there will be a huge systems integration and services component to it.”

The wish list from AT&T Spark

What AT&T and other service providers want matters to networking vendors. That’s because the suppliers’ largest customer base — enterprises — is gradually trading their on-premises software for applications running in the cloud. The trend is shrinking the enterprise market, while increasing the buying clout of cloud providers — such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft — and service providers preparing for massive 5G rollouts.

As a result, AT&T, Vodafone, Verizon and other large service providers “are going to be much more prescriptive in how we want [technology] to evolve,” Wheelus said.

For AT&T, that means commodity x86 hardware for running all Layer 4-7 network services, such as routing, load balancing and firewalls. AT&T is using ONAP to turn those services into virtualized network functions. Under the VNFs is the OpenStack cloud computing platform.

AT&T also wants makers of Layer 4-7 software to rethink the design of their products. For example, rather than selling load balancers for specific purposes, AT&T wants one product that it can configure for multiple tasks using open source orchestration tools, like Ansible and YAML.

“We don’t need eight different load balancers from eight different companies,” Wheelus said. “I need one load balancer, and then I fine-tune it.”

5G hype vs. reality

Is [there] a hype cycle? Yeah, maybe it’s a hype cycle.
Amy Wheelusvice president of AT&T’s Network Cloud

While revamping its network for 5G, AT&T is rolling out 5G radios and other infrastructure in U.S. cities. By early next year, AT&T plans to have 19 cities wired for 5G, including Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

What’s missing, however, are the applications that will deliver services that take advantage of 5G’s unique capabilities. At Spark, AT&T and its partners showed marketing videos touting the potential for better home gaming and entertainment and innovation in medicine and manufacturing. But none of the services exist, and it’s not clear how they will become a reality.

“Is [there] a hype cycle? Yeah, maybe it’s a hype cycle,” Wheelus said at AT&T Spark.

Nevertheless, AT&T claimed it is making progress on future products at its 5G development centers in Atlanta, Palo Alto, Calif., and Plano, Texas. The 5G infrastructure rolling out in the 19 cities is where AT&T will eventually test the services under development.

“We’re just getting standards-based equipment [for the cities],” Wheelus said.

With so much experimentation underway, no one can predict whether the billions of dollars AT&T and the rest of the tech industry are spending on 5G will generate a healthy return on investment. One of the first indicators will be the success of mobile services built for 5G-enabled smartphones, which analysts predict will arrive in 2021.

The potentially more lucrative services for businesses — the kind that is shown today in slick videos at 5G conferences — will take longer to hit the market. Those products are unlikely to be widely available until 2025, analysts said.

AT&T revives [email protected] UCaaS deal with RingCentral

In an unexpected move, AT&T will continue supporting and reselling RingCentral’s unified-communications-as-a-service platform as part of a new partnership targeting the large-enterprise market. 

AT&T had informed customers in January 2018 that, within a year, it would no longer support RingCentral’s [email protected], a cloud-based calling and messaging platform the carrier had been selling to small and midsize businesses.

But, this week, the two companies struck a new deal: AT&T will now start selling the UCaaS product to large enterprises, as well as SMBs. Scott Velting, an associate vice president with AT&T, attributed the about-face to “rapidly changing market dynamics and technological advances.”

RingCentral previously purchased AT&T’s customer licenses for [email protected] in an agreement worth up to $26 million. The startup cautioned investors that revenue could be “significantly and adversely affected” if too many of those customers declined to transition from AT&T to RingCentral.

While some of those customers have already migrated, the businesses that have not yet switched will be able to remain on the [email protected] platform through AT&T, RingCentral said.

Leading up to the earlier decision to end the partnership, [email protected] sales had stagnated, with an “immaterial” number of new subscriptions sold in all of 2017, according to RingCentral. Sales through the AT&T channel accounted for 11% of RingCentral’s revenue that year — down from 14% in 2016. 

With the new deal announced this week, the technology behind [email protected] is the same, but RingCentral appears to have developed a more robust strategy for working with service-provider partners like AT&T, said Jeremy Duke, founder and chief analyst at Synergy Research Group, based in Reno, Nevada.

RingCentral is “currently growing at more than the average growth rate for the UCaaS market, and they want to continue that growth,” Duke said. “And they see the AT&T relationship as very important to continue building that momentum.”

RingCentral has more than doubled its revenue over the past three years, from $220 million in 2014 to $501 million last year, according to federal regulatory filings.

“I think this move helps RingCentral in its efforts to move upmarket. We continue to see RingCentral posting strong growth numbers; this expanded partnership should only help,” said Irwin Lazar, analyst at Nemertes Research, based in Mokena, Ill.

AT&T partners with several other UCaaS vendors, including Cisco and BroadSoft, which was recently acquired by Cisco. It also has its own cloud communications platform, AT&T Collaborate.

Vendors target large enterprises with UCaaS

While SMBs drove most of the initial growth of the UCaaS market, more and more enterprises are also now buying cloud calling plans.

UCaaS sales in the enterprise market are growing at twice the rate of sales in the SMB market, according to data released last month by Synergy. There are now nearly 8 million UCaaS seats worldwide, a twofold increase since late 2015, the firm said.

As of the second quarter of 2018, RingCentral remains the leader, with an 18% market share, trailed by Mitel at 16%, 8×8 at 13%, Cisco at 7%, and Vonage at 7%, according to Synergy. Mitel recently acquired UCaaS vendor ShoreTel.

Still, UCaaS platforms account for less than 10% of the total PBX market, according to Synergy.

“Our data shows that larger enterprises are still laggards when it comes to adopting UCaaS, but interest continues to grow,” Lazar said.

AT&T 5G headed for 12 U.S. markets this year

AT&T plans to introduce fifth-generation, or 5G, mobile services in a dozen markets by the end of the year, as it aims to become the first U.S. carrier to offer the high-speed wireless network.

The rollout of the AT&T 5G services was sped up by the recent completion of new standards, the company said. In December, international wireless standards body 3GPP finished the new radio specifications that define radio access to the network.

The completed standards provide the specs device and chipset manufacturers need to build 5G products capable of handling data speeds of up to 10 Gbps — 10 to 20 times faster than the current 4G networks. In a statement, AT&T said it’s “confident this latest standards milestone will allow us to bring 5G to market faster.”

Verizon plan differs from AT&T 5G strategy

AT&T rivals Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint also plan to offer 5G mobile services. However, the companies, including AT&T, haven’t described in detail the services they would provide.

While AT&T focuses on mobile, Verizon has aimed its initial 5G work at residential broadband services, which the company plans to launch in five markets this year. The higher-frequency range of 5G makes it possible for service providers to deliver high-speed internet to homes wirelessly.

Fifth-generation is expected to support tens of millions of new broadband connections at 50 Mbps or more. The higher speeds on fixed and mobile 5G services can power virtual reality applications, driverless cars and 4K streaming video.

While preparing AT&T 5G services for consumers, the company plans to test the technology with businesses across industries. AT&T said the lower latency of 5G would make it useful in edge computing, an architecture designed for the internet of things.

Despite the ongoing 5G rollouts, carriers are not expected to deliver wide-scale services until at least 2020. Manufacturers will need time to build support in devices, and most service providers are content to wait until they reap the full return on 4G investments.

Comcast networking adds ActiveCore SD-WAN; AT&T NetBond tackles cloud

Comcast Business has launched its software-defined networking platform for managed services, and rival AT&T, which introduced its SDN platform last year, is focusing on providing connectivity to multiple clouds.

The announcements, made this week, demonstrates how the managed service providers are leveraging SDN to deliver network services to enterprises. Comcast Business, a subsidiary of cable company Comcast, launched SD-WAN as the first Comcast networking offering on the ActiveCore platform while AT&T is focusing on improving cloud connectivity.

Comcast is the first U.S. cable company to provide a managed SD-WAN service, which will compete with similar offerings from internet service providers and telcos, including AT&T. Comcast Business is using Versa Network’s SD-WAN, which Comcast had been making available to enterprises on a trial basis since May.

SD-WAN provides companies with more efficient use of network connections at branch offices. Administrators can configure the software to direct latency-sensitive traffic, such as video conferencing, over highly reliable MPLS links while lower priority traffic is sent to cheaper broadband connections. Companies also use SD-WAN to incorporate 4G LTE as a backup link.

SD-WAN as a managed service on Comcast networking

Network service providers are launching SD-WAN-as-a-service products to grab a share of a fast-growing market. Worldwide revenue from SD-WAN is growing by 90% annually and will top $6 billion by 2020, according to IDC. Service providers will account for more than a third of the overall market.

Comcast hosts its SD-WAN controller in its data center and provides customers with an on-premises device that connects to the software. The company plans to launch other services on ActiveCore, which is essentially a platform for running and managing virtualized network functions (VNF). Comcast provides a customer portal for configuring services.

The cable operator pairs ActiveCore with its upgraded DOCSIS 3.1 Comcast networking service, which provides 1 Gbps internet speeds.

AT&T NetBond for Cloud

In March 2016, AT&T introduced its SDN platform, called Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management and Policy, or ECOMP. The software platform is used to deliver a variety of on-demand network services, including Ethernet connectivity, IP VPNs and other WAN services.

The latest version of NetBond for Cloud is a separate software-based service for routing traffic directly from customer locations to multiple cloud environments. The service connects through a MPLS-based private VPN.

NetBond, according to AT&T, avoids traffic slowdowns that occur when cloud traffic has to go through a company’s data center before heading to the internet. Also, AT&T can automatically increase bandwidth to accommodate unexpected or peak traffic loads.

AT&T first introduced NetBond in 2013. Since then, more than 20 companies providing cloud-based services have joined the NetBond partner program. They include Amazon, Box, IBM, Microsoft and Salesforce.

lumia_640_xl_2_946x432pg

I had a chance to use a pre-production version of the Lumia 640 XL a few months ago and loved it. First off – it’s 5.7-inch ClearBlack IPS LCD HD display is quite nice. After living with a 6-inch Lumia 1520 for a while now, I’ve grown accustom to having a larger phone. The Lumia 640 XL is only a tad bit smaller than the Lumia 1520. The Lumia 640 XL isn’t a slouch either – it comes powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. For storage, you get 8GB of internal storage and the ability to add up to 128GB of additional storage via a microSD card. However, it’s the camera on the Lumia 640 XL that really hooked me. It has 13-megapixel rear-facing camera that includes auto-focus, ZEISS optics and an LED flash. Oh yeah and if you’re into selfies, it has a nice a 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera too.

lumia_640_xl_946x432

The Lumia 640 XL comes with Windows Phone 8.1 (Lumia Denim Update) which includes Cortana, Action Center, Word Flow, and more. It will also be upgradeable to Windows 10 Mobile too when its released.

I would highly recommend the Lumia 640 XL if you’re on the market for a new phone with some great features at an affordable price. I’ll be hitting up my local AT&T store on June 26th to pick mine up!
