AT&T sets a date to put DANOS into the Linux Foundation


AT&T has long promised to release its DANOS network operating system into the Linux Foundation. On Tuesday, the telco said it would do just that on Nov. 15 and it also named IP Infusion as the exclusive integrator and reseller of DANOS. The news that AT&T is putting DANOS into open source, and that it has named IP Infusion to sell and support it, is a game-changer for universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) deployments. While there are some network operating systems in play today, the industry will benefit from access to DANOS due to AT&T’s expertise and deployments. (Source: Fierce Telecom)
